Disney has announced its next animated feature will be titled “Strange World.” The original action-adventure is scheduled to debut around Thanksgiving.
The fantastical film is about the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threatened to topple their latest and most crucial mission.
Don Hall, whose credits include “Big Hero 6” and “Raya and the Last Dragon” is directing “Strange World,” which he says 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.’”
Qui Nguyen, who co-wrote “Raya and the Last Dragon” with Hall, is returning to pen the screenplay for “Strange World. Roy Conli (“Big Hero 6,” “Tangled”) is producing.
Though the release calendar could change before then, “Strange World” is currently set to premiere in theaters on the same day as “The Fabelmans,” a semi-autobiographical drama about director Steven Spielberg’s upbringing in Arizona.
