Luca Official Description
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”), “Luca” releases Summer 2021.

So what did you think?
I personally am completely enamored with what I’m seeing of this movie. It looks beautiful. The concept of what will be happening also seems intriguing. Perhaps most importantly, it just feels like it is going to be a movie that is full of heart, joy, probably some sad moments at some point, and I will walk away from it glad that I’ve seen it. It has a family feel to it that I’m really looking forward to. The cast seems solid as well. I don’t think casting will make or break a Pixar movie for me though as they always do a great job. I definitely do have some questions about this movie and am a little worried that I’ve already seen too much of it as I do like to be a bit surprised. However, I cannot wait for this movie to be released this summer!
