The Walt Disney Company was expecting big things from their latest animated movie "Strange World," the House of Mouse's first movie to feature an openly gay teen relationship. Disney enlisted high-profile Hollywood celebrities for voice roles, including Jake Gyllenhaal, Gabrielle Union, Lucy Liu, and Dennis Quaid. Disney released "Strange World" during the extended Thanksgiving weekend – when Hollywood launches some of its most anticipated movies.
