Disney has unveiled the first trailer for Strange World, a new animated science-fiction action-adventure film with an all-star voice cast.
Explorer Clyde (Jake Gyllenhaal) comes from a long line of adventurers, but he’s never been much for adventure. All this changes when Callisto Mal (Lucy Liu) shows up on the Clade family’s doorstep to help them on a mission that involves exploring the treacherous “strange world”. Dennis Quaid, Zabuki Young-White and Gabrielle Union also star. The trailer is a cool, neon-colored look at a brand new world — and we can’t wait.
Don Hall, co-director of Moana and Big Hero 6, will co-direct with American playwright Qui Nguyen who will also pen the screenplay.
After first being announced in 2021, the movie finally got an update at D23 – and attendees were treated to the trailer as well as an exclusive clip involving the explorer, his grandfather and an octopus-like creature.
“I’ve always wanted to be in a Disney animation so this is a dream come true,” Gyllenhaal told the D23 audience. The actor previously lent his voice to DreamWorks Animation’s 2021 animated film Spirit Untamed.
