Jake Gyllenhaal reveals why Disney’s Strange World is ‘mind-blowing’

Jake Gyllenhaal stars in a new Disney animated film about a family of explorers.

Get ready to embrace a ‘whole new world’ as a family of explorers go on an epic journey through a mysterious land crawling with monsters in Disney’s new animated action movie Strange World, now on Disney Plus.

The Indiana Jones-style adventure follows scientist-turned-farmer Searcher Clade (voiced by Donnie Darko’s Jake Gyllenhaal) as he’s given the shock news that something is killing Pando, the plant-based energy source he discovered that provides power to the community of Avalonia.

With their three-legged dog Legend and a mischievous blue blob called Splat in tow, Searcher, his wife Meridian (The Inspection’s Gabrielle Union), their 16-year-old son Ethan (Big Mouth’s Jaboukie Young-White), and president of Avalonia, Callisto Mal (Elementary’s Lucy Liu), navigate an uncharted hidden subterranean land full of bizarre creatures and unknown dangers that may hold the answers to saving their kingdom.
