That’s the guy who played my dad.” Quaid added, “It’s the first time we’ve been in the same room together… That’s me.” Gyllenhaal replied, “Wow, that’s cool. You know we did a lot of interviews and you just blew my mind.” You can watch the funny interaction below:

What is the theme of Strange world?

Strange world was directed by Don Hall (Big hero 6) and will explore the generation gap within a family, specifically between Jaegar Clade (Quaid) and Searcher Clade (Gyllenhaal), while adding Searcher’s son Ethan Clade (Jaboukie Young-White) to the mix. Speak against ComicBook. com‘s Liam Crowley, Quaid and Young-White noted that the heart of Strange world is the theme of legacy.

“This movie is about being yourself and not what people think you should be or anything out there, and that’s how you’re going to make the best contribution to the world,” said Quaid. “Enjoy life. This classic theme is about legacy. It’s about being yourself. These guys came up with a script that I think, like all Disney movies, are myths. They refer to something you don’t. Words have for.”

“I think the idea of ​​passing things down to the next generation and how you receive those things, what you do with them, is timeless,” added Young-White. “I think it’s really critical right now, especially when we look at the world and the challenges we face, it requires full communication and participation from multiple generations of different types of people.”
