Walt Disney Animation Studios has revealed the first official teaser trailer and poster from the all-new feature film “Strange World,” coming to theaters this fall.
“Strange World” centers on the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest and most crucial mission, one which will take them into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await.
Jake Gyllenhaal (“Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “Ambulance”) voices the young Searcher Clade in this animated adventure.
Take a look at the teaser trailer, which starts with a retro-style intro:
Director Don Hall, whose previous credits include the Oscar-nominated “Raya and the Last Dragon,” says the story is a nod to pulp magazines, that existed from around the 1900s to the 1950s.
They featured popular action fiction stories that were printed on inexpensive wood pulp paper, which is where the genre gets its name.
“I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up,” Hall said in a press release. “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, returns to co-write the screenplay for “Strange World.”
So far actor Alan Tudyk (“Moana,” “Frozen,” “Wreck-It-Ralph”) is the only other voice attached to the film, but no role has been listed.
It will be Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 61st film, following “Encanto.” The studio started in 1937 with the release of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”
Here is the first poster for the film, which again echoes the pulp fiction style of animation:
