Disney has released a new clip for its animated sci-fi adventure movie Strange World. The movie was Inspired by classic pulp adventure stories and it follows three generations of the Clade family who overcome their differences while exploring a strange and oftentimes hostile world.
Jake Gyllenhaal stars in the movie and voices the character Searcher Clade, the son of a steadfast explorer. The Clades are a legendary family of explorers, and “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.” Fantastical creatures await this crew “whose differences threaten to topple their latest—and by far— most crucial mission.”
The rest of the voice cast comes with Dennis Quaid as Searcher’s larger-than-life explorer father, Jaeger; Jaboukie Young-White as Searcher’s 16-year-old son, Ethan, who longs for adventure; Gabrielle Union as Meridian Clade, a pilot and Searcher’s partner in all things; and Lucy Liu as Callisto Mal, Avalonia’s fearless leader who spearheads the exploration into the strange world.
In the new clip, we see Searcher (Gyllenhaal), Ethan (Young-White), and Jaeger (Quaid) in a dangerous situation where they find themselves running for their lives from some crazy-looking creatures. It also shows us Ethan meeting Jaeger, who is also his grandfather.
The movie was directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon), and when previously talking about the inspiration behind the film, Hall said: “I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up. They were big adventures in which a group of explorers might discover a hidden world of ancient creatures. They’ve been a huge inspiration for Strange World.”
Strange World will be released on November 23rd, 2022.
