Next Thanksgiving, Disney will release its new fantasy adventure film, but you can take a peek here right now!

Disney’s newest upcoming animated feature film will be an action-adventure story that takes fans into an unknown world. Fantastical, unimaginable creatures await in that world. And it’s there, in that world, where the Clades family of explorers will have to work through their differences or risk thwarting the efforts of their most important mission ever.

Disney Releases the First Details and Concept Art for Strange World

The first peek at animation for the upcoming animated feature gives us “otherworldly” vibes, as though the story will be set in another world, an imaginary world, or perhaps in another dimension even.

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

The website gives an interesting insight into the feature, especially when you consider that Disney is fairly mum about the storyline so far:

“The original action-adventure journeys deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest—and by far— most crucial mission. According to 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.'”

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 has a release date of November 23, 2022.







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!
