A still from Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Strange World. The Clade family is inside a vehicle of some kind; there are five humans and one dog, and all the humans are wearing muted colors, mostly in greens, browns, and blues. One is wearing goggles on top of their head. All are looking out the windshield of the vehicle, with smiles on their faces.

Voice Cast Announced for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Strange World

 At the recent Annecy International Animated Film Festival, Walt Disney Animation Studios presented an exclusive look at over 10 minutes of footage from Strange World, its next animated feature. Set for release on November 23, the original action-adventure journeys deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest—and by far—most crucial mission.

The studio also revealed key members of the voice cast joining previously announced actor Jake Gyllenhaal, who lends his voice to Searcher Clade—a farmer who finds himself thrust into an adventure in a strange world. He’s joined by Dennis Quaid as Jaeger Clade, Searcher’s larger-than-life explorer father; Jaboukie Young-White as Ethan Clade, Searcher’s 16 year-old son who longs for adventure beyond his father’s farm while also navigating a school crush; Gabrielle Union as Meridian Clade, a pilot and natural leader, mom to Ethan, and wife of Searcher; and Lucy Liu as Callisto Mal, the head of the land of Avalonia and the leader of the exploration into the strange world.

Stay tuned for more about Strange World in the coming months…

Inside 1923 restaurant on board the Disney Wish, several families are sitting at tables chatting and smiling. There is bright lighting overhead, and seen around the room are displays depicting Walt Disney’s history in animation. There is the usual restaurant accoutrement on the tables—plates, silverware, glasses.

Celebrating Walt Disney’s Legacy Aboard the Disney Wish

Unless you’ve only very recently come back from a multi-year sojourn in a place with zero internet, you know that the Disney Wish—the newest Disney Cruise Line ship—is just a few weeks’ away from embarking on its maiden voyage. The ship, a celebration of nearly 100 years of Disney magic, will provide guests with a one-of-a-kind vacation including all manner of enchanting experiences inspired by Disney, Marvel, Star Wars, and Pixar stories and characters.

Recently, the good folks over at Disney Parks Blog shared a first look at two dining venues dedicated to the rich history of The Walt Disney Company and Walt Disney himself: 1923 and Marceline Market. Named for the year The Walt Disney Company was founded—of course, the same reason we’re called D23!—1923 is an elegant celebration of the company’s legacy, paying homage to the golden age of animation and offering a tasteful tribute to its Californian heritage. The restaurant, as seen in the image above, combines Hollywood glamour with Disney magic and features two dining rooms named after Walt and Roy Disney. The rooms are adorned with more than 1,000 drawing, props, and other unique artifacts, including a look at the evolution of Disney animation from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs to Frozen 2. Guests will enjoy sophisticated dishes designed with families in mind and inspired by the fusion of cultural flavors found throughout the Golden State. The diverse menu of dishes is inspired by the flavors of California, and incorporates a blend of Asian, European, and South American cuisines.

Meanwhile, Marceline Market (named for Walt Disney’s early childhood hometown in Missouri) is a stylish food hall inspired by popular marketplaces around the world. The restaurant includes both indoor and outdoor seating with amazing views of the ocean, and offers casual service for breakfast and lunch, followed by table-service dining at dinnertime with entrees cooked to order.
