2021 seems to be an continuation of 2020, many of us seek Summer sun like the Italian Riviera. Off course we are a long time away from holidays, this Summer let Disney-Pixar bring some of that sunshine to you in Luca.
Today we get a first look at the upcoming animated feature with the UK Teaser Trailer. If we can’t go to the Sun let Disney bring the sun to us in hopefully a cinema screen near you…or your own Television!
The film is the directorial feature debut for Enrico Casarosa who was the storyboard artist for Pixar short La Luna. We find ourselves on the Italian Riviera, with two young friends Luca (Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto (Jack Dylan Glazer) hoping for a wonderful Summer of fun. However that fun is threatened when the secret the boys keep might be exposed, there sea creatures!
After spending two summers working in Sorrento Italy, this trailer brought a smile to my face. I might of not be the age of the boys, but I felt like I was. This does have a Studio Ghibli inspiration to it especially with the boy’s secret, at the same time it is an ‘original’ Pixar film. This looks wonderful, we want gelato, pasta, and endless scooter rides!
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s original feature film Luca 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: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface.
Directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (La Luna) and produced by Andrea Warren (Lava, Cars 3).
The rest of the voice cast includes Emma Berman, Maya Rudolph, Marco Barricelli, and Jim Gaffigan.
Luca is set for Release in Summer 2021 in the UK and Ireland, potentially in June.
