This morning we got our first look at Disney Pixar Luca and it looks as gorgeous and as fun as you would expect from the studio that brought us Coco and Soul. Full disclosure I skipped the synopsis and just watched the trailer and that little surprise twist in there? Love it!
First Look at Disney Pixar Luca
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.
After watching the trailer I can only begin to imagine how Pixar is going to make us cry with this one. What happens Pixar? The best friend dies? The overall discrimination by the townspeople? Never mind I want to be surprised, but I will have tissues ready just in case.
Luca Voice Cast
Not only is the legend Lin-Manuel Miranda working on the music but the voice cast of this film is full of amazing talent.
Jacob Tremblay (“Room,” “Wonder”) lends his voice to Luca Paguro, a bright and inventive 13-year-old sea monster with endless curiosity—especially when it comes to the mysterious world above the sea.
Jack Dylan Grazer (“We Are Who We Are,” “Shazam”) voices Alberto Scorfano, an independent, free-spirited teenage sea monster with unbridled enthusiasm for the human world.
Emma Berman provides the voice of Giulia, an outgoing and charming adventurer who befriends Luca and Alberto.
Maya Rudolph (“Bridesmaids,” “Saturday Night Live,” “Big Mouth”) voices Daniela, Luca’s mother.
Marco Barricelli voices Massimo, Giulia’s father.
Jim Gaffigan (“The Pale Tourist,” “Troop Zero”) voices Lorenzo, Luca’s father.
I wonder if Gaffigan will use his audience voice in this one to break the fourth wall on what is happening on screen? We will find out when Luca is released this summer!
Luca will be out June 2021!
