Disney’s Strange World: Trailer, Release Date, Cast, Plot

Get ready for adventure, because this November, a brand-new Disney movie called “Strange World” is heading to theaters just in time for Thanksgiving. The film is an action-adventure film that centers on a group of explorers navigating unknown land. “Strange World” director Don Hall, who’s worked on other Disney films like “Big Hero 6” and “Raya and the Last Dragon,” explained to Variety that the movie was inspired by pulp magazines (aka magazines that contained fictional stories) that he used to read as a kid. “They were big adventures in which a group of explorers might discover a hidden world or ancient creatures,” Hall said.

“Raya and the Last Dragon” writer Qui Nguyen cowrote the screenplay for “Strange World,” while “Big Hero 6” and “Tangled”‘s Roy Conli acted as the film’s producer.

Disney released the full trailer for “Strange World” on Sept. 21. In it, President Callisto Ma (Lucy Liu) asks the Clade Family — Searcher (Jake Gyllenhaal), Meridian (Gabrielle Union), and Ethan (Jaboukie Young-White) — to go an expedition to a new world with her. Searcher, whose father Jaegar (Dennis Quaid) went missing on an expedition when he was younger, doesn’t want to go, but agrees. And when the family gets to the strange world, they find Jaegar, whose been living there for years.
