In early March, Disney and its animated film family will finally be releasing its much-anticipated Raya and the Last Dragon movie, but just days before its release the entertainment entity alongside Pixar have unveiled yet another film that will be hitting theaters this Summer — Luca.
As somewhat suggested by its moniker, the motion picture is set overseas in Italy. The tale focuses on the story of two friends named Luca — played by Jacob Tremblay — and Alberto — played by Jack Dylan Grazer — that go on to enjoy their Summer together all the while sharing a deep: they are sea monsters from another realm when they dive into the water. Their adventures entail warm weather days relishing in their youth via scooter rides and infinite consumption of pasta and gelato.
Luca is directed by Enrico Casarosa who helped create La Luna, and is produced by Andrea Warren who worked on Lava and Cars 3. Other cast members include that of Maya Rudolph who stars as Daniela — Luca’s mother — and Marco Barricelli who takes the role of Giulia’s father and Jim Gaffigan who executes the voice over for Lorenzo — Luca’s father.
The first trailer related to this coming of age film is viewable up top, and you can expect it to hit theaters come June 2021.
For more entertainment news, Spider-Man: No Way Home is set to arrive in December 2021.
