strange world It is the latest feature film from Walt Disney Animation Studios to be reunited Raya and the last dragonWritten and directed by Don Hall and Quy Nguyen. The new movie is a science fiction, action, and adventure movie that follows a family as they embark on a journey through a mysterious land in the middle of their world. Nguyen penned the script for strange world He co-directs with Hall, and the duo recently spoke with him ComicBook.com About the new film and why it is a “love letter” to their families and the thesis “How to become good grandparents?”
“I’ll just be honest. I’m not going to beat around the bush, even though I have the title of co-director in this movie versus just being a writer in RiaAnd the Ria In many ways, it felt more personal to me than this,” Nguyen explained. I became a bit more of a North Star at that because it meant so much culturally to me, and here I feel as if I was a patron of Don’s vision because it’s Don’s personal story.”
Nguyen continued, “strange world, which gets me excited to work on it, I feel…and animation It’s very hard to do, versus live action, to make a very personal story because there are so many people involved. When it comes to this, though, I think this is one of those, if there’s a Miyazaki-esque movie, that’s director-driven, individual vision, as Miyazaki does in Studio Ghibli, that’s for me…it’s the one I like,” Oh, I look at that movie and I can see Don, not just as a director, but as a human.”
He added, “But it’s something I think we’re all very excited about. We know this is about Don and his dad, about the message of love he sent to his kids, about what he thinks is important to the world and what he wants to give the world as a legacy and that’s what made this exciting…so though Than I’m a co-director on this, I’m learning all about the directing part of everything, but I feel so much more hype man.”
During a press session attended by ComicBook.comNguyen spoke more about the film’s family message. “You know the thing that will get the kids to chew popcorn and be on the edge of their seats, but you also know there’s going to be a lot of hearts. It’s about family, and where your sense of humor is going to come from, the entertainment it provides will bring you back to the movie over and over, to watch it with your children, or with your father in this case, because it is a message of love to our children as father and sons.”
