In Disney’s upcoming animated film Strange World, the Clade family explores a strange new world beneath the fictional world of Avalonia, full of strange creatures and other wonders.
Cassius Life spoke exclusively with Dennis Quaid (Searcher Clade) and Jaboukie Young-White (Ethan Clade) about the strangest places they have ever been in their lives.
Quaid told us about visiting Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago in the Arctic Ocean.
“Svalbard. It’s the northernmost airport in the world. It’s 400 miles from the North Pole,” Quaid begins. “That was strange. It was spring, and every day, there was 20 more minutes of daylight. Really, really odd. 3000 people and 10,000 polar bears.”
“An army of polar bears,” he continued. “Yeah, it was. It was pretty incredible. Yeah, it really was.”
Quaid’s castmate, Jaboukie Young-White, kept things local by taking a bit of a swipe at the United States’ biggest punchline, Florida, but adding Quaid came strong out the gate.
“Man, yeah, you really came out strong. I really don’t even know how to top that,” Young-White admitted. “Let me see. I’ve been to Florida a few times, no. I feel like I have. My strangest adventures are ahead of me. I still have a lot of places to go.”
My strangest adventures are ahead of me. I still have a lot of places to go.”
Dennis Quaid Had More To Share
Quaid then followed up with a visit to a Disco in Berlin but didn’t go too deep into that situation.
“For me, there was one disco in Berlin at 4:00 in the morning. That was a pretty strange world too. But that’s another story for another time,” Quaid further added.
This a conversation we will explore with Mr. Quaid for another time.
