Disney Takes A Page Out Of Sci-Fi Pulp [D23]

The first footage shown at D23 was a new trailer that feels like a mixture of “Lost in Space” with a Jules Verne twist. We see a family working on a farm, when a ship shows up, manned by a pilot, President Callisto Mal (voiced by Lucy Liu) who tells them that the world is in grave danger. She invites them to join her expedition, and our intrepid protagonist Searcher Clade (voiced by Jake Gyllenhaal), who yearns to find his famous explorer father who went missing when he was a kid, agrees. 

They land on a world full of wild creatures and spore-like monsters, and there, they run into Searcher’s father, Jaeger Clade (voiced by Dennis Quaid), a swaggering, grizzled, dirty explorer. There’s a tense, confrontational relationship between Searcher and Jaeger, which the trailer intercuts with glimpses of a cute little blue goop they call Splat, and a creature that smashes through the window of the ship and grabs the pilot.

Like we saw in the first trailer, “Strange World” is full of adventure and a classic sci-fi feel, harkening back to the pulpy sci-fi serials of the 1920s and ’30s that influence the movie. And the second clip doubles down on the pulp thrills even more.
