Strange World is coming home. Disney announced on Monday that the animated film will hit Disney+ on December 23rd, just in time for the holidays. The move comes after Strange World has failed to find its footing at the box office. The film, which was released on Nov. 23rd, has only earned $53.4 million at the worldwide box office. Its opening weekend ($12.1 million domestically) was one of Disney’s worst opening weekends in modern times, especially for the studio’s animated films.
Along with the announcement, Disney also unveiled a brand new poster celebrating the movie’s upcoming release on Disney+.
Strange World tells the story of a legendary family of explorers, the Clades, as they attempt to navigate an uncharted, treacherous land alongside a motley crew that includes a mischievous blob called Splat; Legend, the family dog; and a slew of ravenous creatures.
Strange World was directed by Don Hall (Raya and the Last Dragon) and co-director/writer Qui Nguyen (co-writer Raya and the Last Dragon). The movie stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, Jaboukie Young-White, Gabrielle Union and Lucy Liu.
