Strange World Hits Digital December 23, Blu-Ray February 14
The general consensus on Disney’s Strange World is that it was a big miss. Audiences did not seem interested in the movie when it appeared in theaters last month, and there are several reasons being tossed around as to why: a quiet marketing campaign, the historical failure of animated sci-fi to generate interest, the fact that the movie itself has a confusing premise, basic character designs and a generic title. What it boils down to is the odds of this being the next Encanto are low.
The film’s last chance may come later this month when Strange World is released to digital and Disney+. It’s rare that a movie gets put on the streaming service AND is offered for digital ownership ON THE SAME DAY — it’s redundant, you gotta pace these things out. The exception is if you’re dealing with a flop the size of Strange World. At the moment, it needs exposure more than anything else.
Eventually, Strange World will be coming to disc, but you’ll have to wait until Valentine’s Day. The poor box office performance doesn’t seem to have affected the bonus features list, which is as hefty as past releases have been:
