    Decent to watch if you're sick and stuck in bed.
    This didn't really feel like an original movie to me. It felt like Disney's animated take on Journey to the center of the world or something. We have three generations of father issues. But hey, at least the moms are alive! Nice to see Disney actually putting in diversity of several kinds without being too scared to only put them in the background and then pat themselves on the back for being diverse; they made it blend in nicely and comfortably with the movie. But overall, I wasn't impressed and I only watched it cause I'm sick, stuck in bed and bored and decided to give a try. Wouldn't watch it again though.

    Visually striking & nothing more.
    Strange World tells the story of Searcher Clade(Jake Gyllenhaal), his son Ethan Clade(Jaboukie Young-White), his wife Meridian Clade(Gabrielle Union) & his father. The legendary explorer Jaeger Clade(Dennis Quaid). The Clades go on an adventure that is of the utmost importance but, differences in opinion threatens to undermine the mission.

    Strange World is just an above average film. Director Don Hall has given us a movie that is not at all funny, which is one of the main things an animated movie should be. There are absolutely no scenes that will tug at your heartstrings either. This is surprising, especially since this is a Disney film. The audience will never get fully invested in the main plot of the movie. The animation is flawless. The set pieces are great. The 3D is eye-popping. The vocal performances are the highlight of the film. Jake Gyllenhaal is spectacular as Searcher Clade. Jaboukie Young-White is outstanding as Ethan Clade. Gabrielle Union is fantastic as Meridian Clade. Dennis Quaid is excellent as Jaeger Clade. The supporting cast is impressive. Strange World is not really worth a watch because it doesn't match up to the high standards of Walt Disney Animation Studios' movies of the past. Just watch it if you have a lot of time to kill, albeit with super low expectations. Please do better next time, Disney!
