Walt Disney Animation has unveiled it’s next animated feature film on Twitter. The film will be called ‘Strange World’ and it will release for the Thanksgiving slot next year, on November 23, 2002.

The film synopsis that was released says:
“Strange World” centers on the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threatened to topple their latest and most crucial mission.”
Of course the Twitter post said:
“Strange World,” journeys deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await.”
I have to admit though, it sounds a bit like ‘Encanto’ in the whole family dynamic leading to their mission being threatened.
Here’s their Instagram post:

Variety had some quotes from the production team that shed a bit more light on what this is about. It’s kind of an interesting genre.
Don Hall (Big Hero 6, Raya and the Last Dragon) aid that the movie is based on the old pulp magazines from the early 20th century:
“I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up. 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.‘”
I have to admit it does sound intriguing. Almost like 30’s – 50’s shows and films that are still iconic today.
No casting announcements have been made that I’ve seen, just the first concept art and who the production team is. Since the movie is less than a year off I can’t think they don’t have a lot of that figured out already, but I’m sure they will announce more soon.
