The Clade family is known for being explorers until they weren’t. IN Strange world, the family must come together to save their world from disaster. At the same time, the Clades also have to save their family.
Strange world it is an absolutely beautiful film to watch. It has some beautiful colors, great animation moments, fascinating characters and a ton of creativity. This is a film that shows how Walt Disney Animation Studios continues to push the boundaries of art with technology. The accompanying sound effects are solid and do a great job of helping to sell the story being told. In general, the quality of Strange world it’s strong… in fact, much stronger than some of the ground the Clade family finds themselves walking on!
There are some extras included with Strange world for both the digital download and the disc formats it was released on. These are nice to look at and honestly, I would have liked more. I love the passion for the filmmaking process that comes across in these various bonus features. It was interesting to see how science had such an impact on this film. I think I’d also like a large build picture of the included features, but these are nice to look at. It also gives a lot of insight into this film and where the mindset of the filmmakers was!

Strange world is a fun adventure movie that the whole family can watch together. While it’s not my favorite Disney movie of all time, it has a lot of creativity and beauty to it. Basically, this is a movie about family and accepting people for who they are and not who someone else thinks they should be. There are some really good lessons in it. I give this movie a hat. It is worth watching once with the family and the bonus features definitely add to the film.
