Disney/Pixar Announces New Movie 'Luca', Shares First Look!

Disney/Pixar Announces New Movie 'Luca', Shares First Look!

We have the first look image from the upcoming Disney/Pixar film Luca!

The animated movie is directed by Academy Award-nominated Enrico Casarosa, and is being produced by Andrea Warren, who also produced Lava and Cars 3.

Here’s a synopsis: Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.

“This is a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often set the course of who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in Luca,” Enrico said in a statement. “So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.”

Luca is set to hit theaters on June 18, 2021 in the US.
