TRENETTE AL PESTO! — Emma Berman, Jacob Tremblay and Jack Dylan Grazer provide the voices of a trio of new friends in Disney and Pixar’s “Luca.” Outgoing and charming, Giulia invites Luca and Alberto to her house where they have pasta for the first time—it’s a hit. What she doesn’t know, however, is that her new friends are actually sea monsters who just look human when they’re dry. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”), “Luca” debuts on Disney+ on June 18, 2021. © 2021 Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.
Pixar’s Luca is a wondrous tale about friendships despite being different. Quite literally.
In this newest tale from Pixar, the animated movie tells a fish out of water story of sea monsters befriending a young girl in an Italian town and enrolling themselves into a race to win an ultimate prize of a Vespa.
The story is entirely relatable as it fosters the ideas of friendship, diversity, and even cheering for the underdogs.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Set in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s Luca is a coming-of-age story about a young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer. Luca shares his amazing adventures with his friend Alberto, but their fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: They’re sea monsters from a world below the water’s surface.

In this exclusive featurette, the crew discusses the story of these sea monsters not passing as humans in the dry land world.
