An overused idea limits the script and detracts from the beauty and creative designs of the mysterious land and unique characters the cast explores.
The main premise is the standard story of a father expecting his son to follow in his footsteps and the kid looking at different horizons.
Getting past the limited story the film could be a 2022 version of Fantasia with the usual characters and the stunning flora and fauna that is beautiful to look at as it flows through out the atmosphere in the new land.
Splat a small blue character is most interesting even without a language (it squeaks his emotions and everyone understands what is being translated) by the blue multi appendage character. The characters along with the dog Legend and Splat travel down a giant sinkhole that leads to the Strange World searching for green energy (a newly discovered source of power).
The Strange World it self, is far more imaginative than the script. It is weird, and vibrant, filled with creative landscape, and characters in bright pinks, reds and greens. The background is worth the trip to “Strange World” just ignore the tired script.
