Disney’s Strange World Trailer Is a Modern Take On Old-School Sci-fi

Disney dropped the trailer for its upcoming film Strange World today, and it’s shaping up to be an interesting animated revival of the old-school sci-fi genre.

In the teaser trailer, the newly introduced Clade family of explorers traverses a vibrant world filled with mysterious creatures. The trailer’s modern animation is peppered with old-timey narration and graphics, giving way to a unique combination of visual styles.

According to the film’s official summary, Strange World is an action-adventure movie that follows the Clades, “whose differences threaten to topple their latest — and by far— most crucial mission.” The movie’s official poster can be seen below:

While little is known about the movie’s cast, Disney announced that Jake Gyllenhaal of Spider-Man fame will take on the role of Searcher Clade, a reluctant farmer and the son of an ambitious explorer who wishes to avoid following his father’s risky footsteps. Gyllenhaal will also be joined by Alan Tudyk, who has become a staple of Disney’s animated films since his appearance in Wreck-It Ralph.

Strange World is led by Big Hero 6 director Don Hall and Raya and the Last Dragon writer Qui Nguyen. Roy Conli, who also worked on Big Hero 6, is on board as a producer.

Strange World will premiere in theaters on November 23.
