Walt Disney Studios and Pixar have just announced their next animated movie. Luca is a coming-of-age story set in Italy. The film will hit theaters next summer.
When Pixar and Disney come out with a new animated movie, you can almost bet it will be good. The collaboration – and later takeover – between the two companies has already resulted in countless beautiful award-winning films such as Toy Story, Finding Nemo, Cars, The Incredibles, Ratatouille, WALL-E, Up, Brave and Coco. The animation studio is coming soon Soulalthough its release has been delayed until November due to the corona crisis.
Meanwhile, work is already underway on the next project. Walt Disney Studios announced their next animated film on Twitter Luca will be called. The film is set on the Italian Riviera where the young boy Luca has all kinds of adventures with his best friend. Luca, however, has a great secret. In reality, he is a sea monster from another world just below the water surface.
Luca is directed by Enrico Casarosa, who has previously made the short film La Luna made. “This is a very personal story for me, not only because it takes place on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because the core of this film is a celebration of friendship,” explains Casarosa to the Variety website . “Childhood friendships often determine who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story Luca. In addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian coast, our film will also feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca. ”
If the corona crisis does not further disrupt the planning, we can expect Luca in cinema on June 18, 2021.
