Luca, Disney/Pixar’s next film in a long lineup of animated films, tells the coming-of-age story of two friends with a big nautical secret, who decide to explore a small Italian seaside town. It's the full-length directorial debut of Italian director Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”), with Jacob Tremblay (Room, Wonder) voicing the title character. The internet’s love for these sweet sea monster boys and their Italian summer is already real, and luckily, we won't have to wait long to see 'em in action.

The theatrical release of Luca was cancelled due to the pandemic, but the film was released exclusively on Disney+. You can catch Luca and his “best summer ever” on Disney+ starting June 18, 2021.

Luca follows the story of Luca Paguro (Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto Scorfano (Jack Dylan Grazer), young sea monsters living beneath the water’s surface who decide to adventure on land in the Italian town of Portorosso. Luca and Alberto spend a summer filled with gelato and scooters all while trying to keep their identities a secret from the locals. Along the way, they meet Giulia Marcovaldo (Emma Berman), a young girl who helps them defy town bullies and learn about the world above the sea. Jim Gaffigan, Maya Rudolph, Saverio Raimondo, Marco Barricelli, and Sandy Martin also star.

The film will be the first full-length animated feature film for director Enrico Casarosa, who already has Pixar credentials in the form of the beautiful short film “La Luna,” as well as his work as a storyboard artist for films like Cars and Up. The trailer for Luca is utterly gorgeous, with sprawling Italian vistas and seascapes and an upbeat, quaint score created by Beasts of the Southern Wild composer Dan Romer. Luca is the 24th Pixar Animations Studios feature film, following on the heels of Soul and Onward.
