The next Disney/Pixar original film Luca hits theaters next June and now we know a little more about it. The film follows a young Italian boy and his best friend who is secretly a sea monster from another world. Director Enrico Casarosa said the following via a statement released by Disney:
“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.'”
Luca is currently slated to hit theaters on June 18, 2021.
