WATCH IT HERE: It’s a “Strange World” after all; Trailer released for Disney’s newest film, coming this November

Walt Disney Animation released the first trailer for its upcoming film, Strange World. And, well, it’s a strange world after all.

In the teaser trailer, fans get a taste of the upcoming movie, which promises to be released this fall, on November 23, to be exact, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday.

The opening sequence in the trailer gives us 1950s- and 1960s-era movie promo vibes, and we love that!

Disney’s new animated film, Strange World, tells the story of the legendary Clades family, a family of explorers who are different from those around them. Those differences present challenges for the Clades and might even “topple their latest and most crucial mission.”

Disney Animation’s Instagram account teases fans, saying that Strange World “journeys deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await.” So yeah, now we’re wanting to see some of those fantastical creatures. And we’d love to know where they await! And exactly who are the Clades? Where do they journey from? What is their “latest and most crucial mission?”

Strange World, which was originally to be called, Searcher Clade, will be the 61st animated feature film for Walt Disney Animation Studios.

In December 2021, Disney released some of the first concept art from the new action-adventure animated film. Fans were given the tiniest bits of information about the new film then, and even with the release of the teaser trailer for Strange World, fans still don’t have a full picture of the storyline inside Walt Disney Animation’s newest full-length feature film.

For example, Disney has yet to disclose the voice cast list, and because we don’t have a really deep understanding of the storyline, we don’t even want to speculate on who the list might include.

The site BleedingCool had this to say about Disney’s upcoming “otherworldly” film:

According to film director Don Hall, “Strange World” is a nod to pulp magazines—popular fiction from the first half of the 20th century that was printed on inexpensive wood pulp paper. “I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up,” he said. “They were big adventures in which a group of explorers might discover a hidden world or ancient creatures. They’ve been a huge inspiration for ‘Strange World.’”

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ original action-adventure

Strange World will be directed by Don Hall, who also directed Big Hero 6 and Raya and the Last DragonThe film’s story was written by Qui Nguyen, who was the co-writer for Raya and the Last DragonRoy Conli, who also worked on Big Hero 6 and Tangled, will produce the feature.

Strange World premieres November 23.

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
