Disney+ Sets Streaming Debut Date, Tweets ‘Strange World’ Special Look

Set to hit the streamer in time for Christmas, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ original animated feature transports viewers to uncharted, treacherous lands alongside three generations of the Clades, a legendary family of explorers.

Christmas is coming early this year, with Disney+ announcing the upcoming streaming debut of Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Strange World. The animated feature introduces the Clades, a legendary family of explorers attempting to navigate an uncharted, treacherous land accompanied by a motley crew that includes a mischievous blob, a three-legged dog, and a slew of ravenous creatures – the movie hits the platform December 23.

The story begins when Searcher Clade (Jake Gyllenhaal), a brilliant family man who discovered a revolutionary power-generating plant called pando, learns that the plant is in trouble, and everyone is in grave danger. With his 16-year-old son, Ethan (Jaboukie Young-White), Searcher sets out to find the source of the plant and figure out how to save it. Their journey takes them into a world nobody knew existed, where they encounter a bevy of never-before-seen creatures and, along the way, discover important truths about their relationship – and Searcher’s relationship with his own legendary explorer father, Jaeger (Dennis Quaid) – that will have profound consequences for their future.

Check out the special look dropped on Twitter:

The voice cast includes Gyllenhaal; Quaid; Young-White; Gabrielle Union; and Lucy Liu. The film is helmed by director Don Hall (Oscar-winning Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) and co-director/writer Qui Nguyen (co-writer Raya and the Last Dragon), with Roy Conli (Oscar-winning Big Hero 6, Tangled) producing.
