to build your empire, the Family has always been one of the biggest fixations Disney has ever had.

On the billboard, following the same line, a new title appears this November 24 that adds to the list, but with its own honors. Is about Strange Worlda family adventure that spans three generations and also wants to make us reflect on how we relate to our natural environment.

About the behind the scenes of this tape lively, Live had the privilege of speaking with the film’s co-directors Don Hall and Qui Nguyen, producer Roy Conli, production designer Mehrdad Isvandi, as well as environment design director Sean Jenkins.



Strange World presents the journeys of the Clade family. First on screen is Jaeger Clade (voiced by Dennis Quaid), a burly man who is the quintessential adventurer.

As Raeger continues his intense explorations of the world, the story introduces his son Searcher (played by Jake Gyllenhall), who is a young man not so interested in living life on the edge.

As Searcher grows up, he realizes that his father’s chosen trade is not his thing, so they go their separate ways. The young man wants to dedicate himself to being an academic, far from the adrenaline that involves facing nature, so they stop seeing each other for years.

What causes father and son to meet again is a threat that stalks their town and that could destroy the ecosystem. Inevitably, father and son will have to merge their abilities to prevent it.

For this new mission, Ethan (Jaboukie Young-White), the last of the Clade, will also be joined, who is seduced by his grandfather’s adventurous spirit.
