What’s ‘Luca’ about?
As previously reported by the Deseret News, the official plot synopsis for the movie reads:
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature 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: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.
When will it be released?
Polygon reports that “Luca” will premiere on June 18, though it is unclear at the moment whether the movie will air in theaters exclusively or on Disney+ as well.
Who’s in it?
According to IMDb, the new movie will feature the voices of Jacob Tremblay (who starred in 2017’s “Wonder”), standup comedian Jim Gaffigan, SNL alum Maya Rudolph, and “Shazam!’s” Jack Dylan Grazer, among others.
The movie is directed by newcomer Enrico Casarosa with a script from Jesse Andrews, the author/screenwriter behind “Me, Earl and the Dying Girl,” and Pixar stalwart Mike Jones.
