The cast of Disney’s Strange World opened up about the film’s LGBTQ+ representation in a new interview. On 23 November, the highly anticipated feature will finally make its way to cinemas after it was first teased in 2021.

The new film follows the Clades, a family of explorers that embark on an adventure “into a deep, uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await.” Jake Gyllenhaal, Gabrielle Union, Dennis Quaid, and Jaboukie Young-White are set to star as the Clades family, with Lucy Liu rounding out the cast as Callisto Mal – the leader of the land of Avalonia.

In a 2021 statement, director Don Hall revealed that the film is a nod to classic pulp magazines. “I loved reading the old issues of pulps growing up,” he said. “They were big adventures in which a group of explorers might discover a hidden world of ancient creatures.
