Strange World, the forthcoming feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, has been formally revealed.
The original action-adventure ventures deep into an undiscovered and treacherous country where magical animals await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to derail their most important quest yet.
Strange World, according to filmmaker Don Hall, is an homage to pulp magazines, which were popular literature published in the early part of the twentieth century and printed on cheap wood pulp paper.
“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 is directed by Hall (Oscar® winner Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) and co-directed/written by Qui Nguyen (co-writer Raya and the Last Dragon), and produced by Roy Conli (Oscar® winner Big Hero 6, Tangled).
The film is scheduled to release in theaters on November 23, 2022.
