Disney’s ‘Strange World’ Offers a Solution to Climate Change You Probably Don’t Want to Hear

Disney’s newest animated feature film, Strange World, quietly came and went last month, with many moviegoers not even realizing it had been released until they heard that it had flopped. Overall, the film is a tragic waste of potential. It has a diverse cast and Disney’s first gay lead in a feature film, but none of the characters are very interesting, and the second act is positively mind-numbing. If you can look past those problems, though, the ending is surprisingly provocative.

The Strange World ending, explained

In Strange World, the Clades (Jaboukie Young-White, Jake Gyllenhaal, Dennis Quaid, and Gabrielle Union) journey to a subterranean world to save Pando, the organic energy source they’ve been farming for 25 years. At the end of their travels, they discover that their entire civilization, Avalonia, is perched on the shell of a colossal sea turtle. The underworld is the turtle’s insides, and Pando is actually a parasite that’s killing it.
