Strange World filmmakers talk about pushing the boundaries of what a Disney film can be – GamesRadar | Episode Movies

What would life be like as the son of Indiana Jones, Doc Savage or Nathan Drake – one of those legendary explorers who seek wealth and fame above all else? That’s the question that gave rise to the idea for Strange World, Disney’s latest animated feature. “And from there,” co-director and screenwriter Qui Nguyen tells Total Film, “what happens when they have a kid? How do you raise it?”

From these questions, the filmmakers created the dynamic family at the heart of Strange World – the Clades. There’s larger-than-life explorer Jaeger Clade (Dennis Quaid), his son Searcher Clade (Jake Gyllenhaal), a reluctant adventurer-turned-farmer, and his Son Ethan Clade (Jaboukie Young-White), who wishes for a life beyond the farm. The complex relationship between these three generations is at the heart of the film as the Clades embark on an exciting journey into a mysterious underground land.
