This looks like a poor man's Atlantis. The "strange world" where everything is covered in a pink hue for some reason, is unimaginative and doesn't evoke a sense of mystery or awe, the characters comprising the crew look boring, derivative, and stereotypical, and their design is too caricatured and generic. I think this might end up being the worst of the post-Revival films.

It can't be worse than Ralph Breaks the Internet, can it?

The characters design pretty much feels like any studio could have made this film.

Those are acquired properties done by other studios, I'm talking about the home grown stuff they can really call their own.

I think it has more to do with the type of films Don Hall is interested in making. He used to work at Disney at that time so I don't believe he thinks he's better than people he used to work with. But then he managed to win an Academy Award for Big Hero 6 while Musker and Clements, Trousdale and Wise never did so who knows?

I'm not surprised that The DisInsider was wrong again.

I think that Searcher and Meridian are married and Ethan is their son. Calypso Kahn is Searcher's father and Callisto Mal is his wife (second marriage).

Your guesses make more sense than mine. Meridian looks like a kid to me in the close-up where she's piloting, but in the picture of the whole group she looks older. I think you're most likely right she's Searcher's wife.

I share the same feelings as Sotiris and D82.
What I love the most in every Disney Animation is that you always find this Disney's sparkle in the eyes of the characters, whatever their design, that I can't spot in other studios.
Here I can see the Disney mix between Ralph, Raya and Encanto but the male characters lack the Disney vibe in their eyes who look more like they are from a Sony's animated movie such like Hotel Transylvania or Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs.
I am beyond disappointed for the first time in many years.
Searcher and Ethan could have be great but they tend to look ridiculous for some reason.
I like that the male lead has a beard and he could be handsome. Ethan has a beautiful color scheme and his clothes look fun but the eyes, why??
Maybe the overall movie will change this feeling but I am also annoyed by the difference between the men and the women.
Callista and Meridian don't have that stylistic goofy design. It's not homogenic.
Even recent Pixar's movies like Turning Red and Luca assume their character design's direction for all genders and ages.
They don't fit the same movie at all and come on Disney : men always look stupid while women are badass!
Can't we have at least one time a male character who looks as great, cute, interesting and charismatic like many of the heroines of the studio?
It doesn't take much to make me like Searcher's character yet it's frustrating...
That's too bad and I feel weird now and sad to be honest because it's also the first time I totally discover the visuals of a new Disney animated feature and I was shocked when we see the overall group in the ship.
Even when the story is not perfect, I've always been so passionate and impatient to discover and wait for the next feature.
I guess the directors of Strange World wanted this retro feel even in the cartoony ovale and close together eyes that you can also spot in the old cartoons.
When those characters will be in action, it will work but I'm afraid now of the quiet moments when we'll get to see them in close-up.
Can't wait though to see and learn more in the upcoming presentation at Annecy's Festival.
Love the poster anyway.
Oh, and sure it reminds a lot of our french old tv show from the eighties "Il était une fois la Vie"! ;)

Who do you think was the last man from a Disney film that actually looked good? Naveen?
