The movie, set in Avalonia, centers on the Clades, a renowned family of explorers. They put aside their differences to travel to a mysterious place home to peculiar life forms to prevent the Pando resource from losing its energy power source.

An American science fiction, fantasy, action, and adventure movie called Strange World was created using computer animation. It is the result of a studio that placed one foot firmly in the present while keeping the other firmly planted in the past. It is a pleasant blend of the new and the old. Similar to other Disney films, the plot involves an adventure to save the kingdom while mending the intergenerational traumas of the Clade family. The presentation is vivid and refreshing. Beautifully created, Avalonia combines elements of a typical fantasy realm, a retro-futurist utopia, and the real world.

In the world this family discovers, a pink-and-purple-hued realm with fascinating creatures inspired by Dr Seuss, Strange World makes an impression. Giant neon birds soar through the air in Strange World, landmasses with legs rebuild lost plant life, and a character known only as Splat aids the Clades and the rest of the squad in their goal. The region created by co-director Qui Nguyen and director Don Hall is so engaging that it compels viewers to learn more about this strange new universe.

The people and narrative that have been placed into this scenario are pretty ordinary and full of cliché that we’ve heard numerous times in this type of movie, despite how exciting and rich this new universe is. Many thoughts and overused phrases are used as the three generations of Clade men argue and bond. Similar tones pervaded Raya and the Last Dragon, which stifled the exciting world the characters were immersed in.

The movie only comes to life when the tensions between people, both significant and tiny, are brought to the forefront. Its flaws are simple to overlook due to Strange World’s charm, imaginative world-building and forward-thinking storytelling. Even if it doesn’t all work, seeing Disney again is interesting. At least try something new and see what stays. The strange world feels like Disney’s attempt to try something new with their generally conservative cartoon side.

Rating – Three out of five stars.

On November 23, 2022, Strange World will be officially released exclusively in theaters. It is produced by Roy Conli for Walt Disney Animation Studios, directed by Don Hall, and released by Walt Disney Pictures. Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, Jaboukie Young-White, Gabrielle Union, and Lucy Liu are among the actors who appear in it. It is prepared for release on Disney Plus Hotstar, an OTT streaming service.

It is quick, entertaining, and packed with peculiar animals, demonstrating that Disney can make full-on action-adventure material and fairytale content.
