Disney and Pixar’s next movie – Luca – is directed by Enrico Casarosa and produced by Andrea Warren and will introduce a boy named Luca as he experiences an unforgettable summer in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera.
Casarosa shared details on the inspiration of the story saying,
This is a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often set the course of who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in ‘Luca.’ So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.
Luca is set to hit theaters in the Summer of 2021.
