As Pixar marks its 35th birthday, we join the filmmakers of their 24th original film Luca, a funny and exciting tale involving sea monsters on the Italian Riviera. Joining host Justin Johnson are director Enrico Casarosa, producer Andrea Warren and creative art director Deanna Marsigliese. As well as watching some clips from the film, you’ll learn more about the films that influenced Luca, the creative challenges the filmmakers faced and whether they’ve met any real life sea monsters.
This summer, you’re invited to Portorosso. Watch the new trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Luca and see the film June 18 on Disney+. Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s original feature film “Luca” 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: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface.
Directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”), “Luca” releases June 18 on Disney+.
