Strange World Trailer: Disney’s next animated adventure takes place on a mysterious, living planet

Strange World trailer is out. Following a screening at Disney’s D23 Expo earlier this month, the studio has now dropped the trailer for public viewing, featuring a generation-spanning story about a family of legendary explorers. Don Hall, best known for Big Hero 6, directs this animated film with writer Qui Nguyen (Raya and the Last Dragon). Jake Gyllenhaal leads the cast as Searcher Clade, a family man who is thrust into a mysterious Dr. Seuss-like planet. Strange World debuts November 23 in the US and November 25 in India.

The Strange World trailer starts off on a peaceful note, with Searcher (Gyllenhaal) tending to his farm while tending to his family. The tone changes when President Callisto Mal – played by Lucy Liu – rides into the farm one night and invites him on an interstellar journey to a vibrant planet. “Our whole world is in grave danger,” she says. “I want you to go on an expedition with me.” Having lived under the shadow of his father – who disappeared on an expedition – Searcher is reluctant at first, but realizes he has no choice but to join the mission. Accompanied by a motley crew that includes his son Ethan (Jaboukie Young-White), wife Meridian (Gabrielle Union) and a three-legged dog, the group must traverse the vibrant planet and solve the unspecified crisis.

Although not directly mentioned, the world seems to take inspiration from the pink-toned Quarantine Zone in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy game. The aptly titled Strange World trailer then introduces some ravenous creatures that inhabit the lands – mostly peaceful, but some hostile. When a tentacular creature attacks Searcher, Jaeger (Dennis Quaid), his long-lost father, jumps in to save and scares the beast away. The Strange World trailer then offers some information about the planet as the family catches up on lost moments. “The rocks are alive,” says Jaeger. “And the water dissolves the flesh from your bones.”

It also seems that at some point the group splits up, causing Ethan to get lost in the desert. Fortunately, he finds some company when he befriends a mysterious blue blob that can attach itself to things. “Do you mind if I call you Splat?” he introduces himself. “You’re just giving me Splat vibes.” The rest of the Strange World trailer segues into a montage of familial arguments as the three-generation lineage discusses security measures on the planet. “You gave me a machete for my birthday,” says a frustrated Searcher trying to remember the past. “I was 2.”

Strange World is slated to open on November 23 in US theaters, and will premiere on November 25 in theaters across India.
