New Luca Details Announced and Exclusive Image Revealed
More details have been announced for the upcoming Pixar movie, Luca, courtesy of Empire magazine.
Pixar has delivered no shortage of wonderfully thought provoking films in recent years. Inside Out, Onward, and the recently released Soul, all take the viewer on a journey into the complexities of human emotion, the brotherly bond, and the human struggle of purpose.
The first feature film directed by Enrico Casarosa, Luca is an Italian set story of two young boys who appear human when on land, but become sea creatures when submerged underwater.
The film is described as a coming of age story, that will delve deep into experiences shared by Casarosa growing up in Genoa, Italy.
Casarosas first endeavor into the film world, a short entitled La Luna, has primed the director for his feature film debut. Pixar has set a standard of excellence, and a desire for stories that transcend traditional narratives in the realm of animation. Luca seeks to be the next of that lineage.
Luca is slated for a summer 2021 release, with the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic possibly interfering with that timeline. Whenever the film debuts, Pixar fans will be eagerly awaiting the charm, laughs, and heart Pixar has become known for.
