The first trailer and official poster of the new film of Walt Disney Animation Studios, a strange world, with the voice of Jake Gyllenhaal as Searcher Clade, the son of a scout. The action-adventure will take place in an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers, whose differences threaten to overthrow their latest quest.
The film is directed by Don Hall (Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) and co-director and screenwriter Qui Nguyen (Raya and the Last Dragon). The producer is Roy Conli (Big Hero 6, tangled), and another name in the cast is Alan Tudyk (Star Wars: Rogue One). It returns to the premise of unexplored lands with secrets that go beyond normality and where the true adventure lies, in addition, of course, to a family story.
Last year they presented the designs and conceptual arts of what the film would look like in addition to the official logo. Today Strange World is already a fact and is defined as an exploration adventure pulpwith nods to comics and novels that were published at the beginning of the 20th century and that marked a generation of readers.
When it was presented in 2021, the Oscar-winning director left some ideas about the film: “I loved reading those old story numbers again pulps that I enjoyed as a child. They were great adventures in which a group of explorers discovered a hidden world or ancient creatures. They have been a source of inspiration for Strange World”.
On the part of the protagonist, Jake Gyllenhaal will be the one who plays Searcher Clade, the son of a famous explorer who claims in the preview that he is nothing like his father. The character is a farmer who is on a mission to a land “beyond space and time.” “I think all you really have, as an actor, outside of technical skills, is your imagination, so that was one thing. I found it interesting,” Gyllenhaal said in an interview with the site. The Scotsman about his animated film debut with Spirit: the Indomitable.
He also gave details about that experience that marked him and that he decided to revisit in Strange World: “We had a camera to film us doing the action so the animators could mimic our facial expressions, so I had a hard time holding that screen and talking to it at the same time and it was really, really hot. I played the entire part on my knees, basically in a prayer position next to a bed, with two pillows on either side of my head and a very heavy blanket over them.”
