This November, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ is releasing a brand new original action-packed adventure, called “Strange World” that 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.


When Is “Strange World” Released?

“Strange World” is being released exclusively in cinemas on 23rd November 2022, before it will be released on Disney+ and digital formats, followed by physical home video formats like DVD/Blu-Ray/4K at a later date.


When Will “Strange World” Be On Disney+?

Currently, no official Disney+ release date has yet been announced for “Strange World”.

While Disney has sped up the amount of time it takes for films to be released in cinemas before arriving on Disney+, it is still taking each film’s release on a case-by-case basis, depending on how well the film is doing at the box office. The more successful the film is at the box office, the longer the release to Disney+ will take.

If we take a look at the most recent animated movie releases to compare:

  • “Encanto” was released in cinemas on 24th November 2021 and released on Disney+, just 30 days later, on Christmas Eve.
  • “Lightyear” was released in cinemas on 17th June 2022, and just 47 days arrived on Disney+

So should “Strange World” follows a similar pattern, the film could arrive on Disney+ just in time for Christmas, if Disney wants to try to replicate how successful the Disney+ release of “Encanto” was.  However, should Disney decide to hold the film a little longer, i.e. 45 days, early-January 2023 could be a likely release window.

Once Disney officially announces a release date for “Strange World”, this page will be updated.


Is “Strange World” Coming To Disney+ Premier Access?

Disney has confirmed that following the release of “Jungle Cruise”, it won’t be using Disney+ Premier Access, instead offering selected movies exclusively in cinemas first.


What Time Will “Strange World” Be Released On Disney+

Disney+ updates daily at the following times:

  • Pacific Time: 00:00 AM / Midnight
  • Eastern Time: 03:00 AM
  • UK: 08:00 AM
  • Sydney, Australia – 19:00 PM

Sometimes content can arrive a few minutes later as the servers update. The Disney+ front page usually updates about an hour later.


Is “Strange World” on Netflix?

“Strange World” is created by Walt Disney Animation Studios, and Disney doesn’t license out its new films to other streaming services. So it won’t be available on any other streaming services like Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon or Hulu.
