Walt Disney Animation Studios have released some concept art as well as new details on their upcoming animated feature film Strange World.
The original action-adventure film 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.”
Helmed by Hall (Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) and co-director/writer Qui Nguyen (co-writer of Raya and the Last Dragon), and produced by Roy Conli (Big Hero 6, Tangled), Strange World is released on November 23, 2022.
