Strange World stars Gabrielle Union, Jaboukie Young-White, Jake Gyllenhaal and Dennis Quaid celebrated Disney expanding its horizons for adventure tales ahead of the movie’s premiere on Nov. 23.

The newest feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studio, Strange World tells the story of the Clade family of legendary explorers. Jaeger Clade, voiced by Quaid, is a life-long explorer who has dreamed of being the first to venture beyond the mountains that surround Avalonia.

The last time Searcher Clade (Gyllenhaal) saw his father, Jaeger continued his expedition while Searcher returned home after discovering a plant-based power source called Pando.

Years later, Searcher and his wife Meridian, voiced by Union, and their 16-year-old son Ethan (Young-White), have built a prosperous farm to harvest and distribute this crop that powers Avalonia. But when president Callisto Mal, voiced Lucy Liu, discovers an issue with the plants, the Clade family is back to exploring to save Avalonia’s source of power.

Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Strange World” introduces a legendary family of explorers, the Clades, as they attempt to navigate an uncharted, treacherous land. The original action-packed comedy adventure features the voices of Dennis Quaid as legendary larger-than-life explorer Jaeger Clade; Jake Gyllenhaal as Searcher Clade, a family man who finds himself out of his element on an unpredictable mission; Gabrielle Union as Meridian Clade, an accomplished pilot and Searcher’s partner in all things. Jaboukie Young-White as Searcher’s 16-year-old son, Ethan, who finally finds the adventure he’s always wanted; and Lucy Liu as Callisto Mal, fearless leader of the mythical Avalonia who spearheads an exploration into a strange world. “Strange World” opens in theatres nationwide on Nov. 23, 2022 (Disney)
