Walt Disney Animation Studios‘ next movie, ‘Strange World’, is set to be released globally in movie theaters on November 23, 2022.
The feature film introduces 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, a three-legged dog and a slew of ravenous creatures.
But when exactly is Strange World coming to Disney+? Read on for everything we know!
‘Strange World’ Disney Plus Release Date
As it stands, Disney hasn’t announced when Strange World will be coming to Disney+. However, we can certainly make a pretty strong educated guess based on previous movies.
In recent years, Disney has shorten the window of time it takes for movies to arrive on Disney+ after they’re released in movie theaters.
Typically, when a movie is doing well at the box office, the movie takes longer to arrive on Disney+ to avoid capitalising ticket sales. This means every movie can often have a different release strategy for Disney+ as it’s handled on a case-by-case situation.
That said, if we look at previous Disney animated movies, we can start to form a good idea on when Strange World will be hitting Disney+.
Previous Disney Animated Theatrical To Disney+ Release time
- “Encanto” was released in movie theaters on November 24, 2021, and was released on Disney+, just 30 days later, on Christmas Eve.
- “Lightyear” was released in theaters on June 17, 2022, and just 47 days arrived on Disney+
This means that Strange World could arrive on Disney+ as soon as Christmas Eve/Christmas Day, or possibly later in January 2023. However, Deadline is reporting that ‘Strange World’ will be on Disney+ in time for the holidays.
We suspect that Disney will want to try and eliminate the success of “Encanto” and will release Strange World on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
We’ll be sure to update this article the moment we hear some official news from Disney.

What is ‘Strange World’ About?
The feature film introduces 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, a three-legged dog and a slew of ravenous creatures. “Inspired by classic adventure stories,” said director Don Hall, “‘Strange World’ is an original animated adventure/comedy about three generations of the Clade family who overcome their differences while exploring a strange, wondrous and oftentimes hostile world.”
The voice cast includes Jake Gyllenhaal as Searcher Clade, a family man who finds himself out of his element on an unpredictable mission; Dennis Quaid as Searcher’s larger-than-life explorer father, Jaeger; Jaboukie Young-White as Searcher’s 16-year-old son, Ethan, who longs for adventure; Gabrielle Union as Meridian Clade, an accomplished pilot and Searcher’s partner in all things; and Lucy Liu as Callisto Mal, Avalonia’s fearless leader who spearheads the exploration into the strange world. “Strange World” is helmed by Don Hall (Oscar®-winning “Big Hero 6,” “Raya and the Last Dragon”) and co-director/writer Qui Nguyen (co-writer “Raya and the Last Dragon”), and produced by Roy Conli (Oscar®-winning “Big Hero 6,” “Tangled”).
