A Strange World is coming to a theater near you very soon.
After the success of Oscar-winning Encanto, Walt Disney Animated Studios is all set to embark on its next adventure film, titled Strange World. Disney is keeping every detail of their next potential paragon, a secret. So here's our try to unravel the mysteries surrounding the film.
Disney is one of the many studios that have decided to release their movies on the Thanksgiving weekend. Projects like Frozen and Coco have proved that this window is an amazing time to showcase their artistic talent. Strange World will be officially released in theaters on Wednesday, November 23, 2022. This means that Strange World will not be getting a Disney+ premiere on that same day.
Strange World follows the journey of a man named Searcher Clade. He is a member of the Clade family whose legendary exploits have garnered recognition and tagged them as the greatest explorers to ever live. Searcher, however, doesn't fall under the same category as he shows little to no interest in following his family's footsteps. His wish is to live a quiet life as a farmer instead, and had no inclination toward an adventurous and unpredictable life.
That will all change very soon when he stumbles upon a world that defies explanation and logic and doesn't follow the basic established laws of nature. Searcher and the rest of his family couldn't be more different in terms of responses to conflict and danger, but they'll put their arbitrary drama aside to concentrate on the present unfathomable circumstances. The official synopsis by Disney reads,
"The feature film introduces a legendary family of explorers, the Clades, as they attempt to navigate an uncharted, treacherous land alongside a motley crew that includes a mischievous blob, a three-legged dog, and a slew of ravenous creatures."
“Inspired by classic adventure stories," said director Don Hall, "'Strange World’ is an original animated adventure/comedy about three generations of the Clade family who overcome their differences while exploring a strange, wondrous, and oftentimes hostile world."
Protagonist Searcher Clade is voiced by none other than Jake Gyllenhaal, whose famed acting range is sure to provide depth to the main hero. Alan Tudyk will also have a part to play in the film. The movie will also include Dennis Quaid as Searcher's father Jaegar Clade and Jaboukie young-White as Searcher's teenage son Ethan, Gabrielle Union as Searcher's wife Meridian, and Lucy Liu as Callisto Mal, the head of the land of Avalonia and the leader of Clade's family exploration.
