Jake Gyllenhaal is embarking on an epic journey in Disney's upcoming film Strange World.

In the first trailer for the film, set to hit theaters Thanksgiving, Gyllenhaal, 41, voices the character of Searcher Clade —  "the son of a steadfast explorer," according to a release from Disney.

"Prepare yourself for a journey beyond what is possible," reads a voice as the trailer begins showing a colorful other-worldy landscape.

The animated film will take audiences "deep into an uncharted and treacherous land where fantastical creatures await the legendary Clades, a family of explorers whose differences threaten to topple their latest—and by far— most crucial mission," according to Disney.

The film is led by director Don Hall (Big Hero 6 and Raya and the Last Dragon) and writer Qui Nguyen, who co-wrote Raya and the Last Dragon.

"Travel past space and time to a place of infinite mystery unlike anything you've ever seen," the trailer continues.

The siblings have worked together in the past: They played brother and sister in 2001's Donnie Darko, and appeared together in two of their director dad Stephen's films, 1993's A Dangerous Woman and 1998's Homegrown.

"We actually talk about it more now than ever, and I would love to work with her," he said of collaborating together. "We are working together on something right now, just creatively, not as actors, which I'm enjoying so much."

"I don't think I can say yet. But, she's an incredible writer, and she's an incredible filmmaker, and I've known that for a long time. And now the world knows it," Jake added, referencing Maggie's 2021 directorial debut The Lost Daughter, which earned her an Oscar nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
