    Disney-Pixar's Luca Trailer Prepares For an Unforgettable Summer
    Coming off from winning the Best Animated Feature for the Jamie
    Foxx-led Soul at last Sunday's 2021 Oscars, Walt Disney Studios
    and Pixar have finally released the full Luca trailer for their
    first animated film this year starring Jacob Tremblay and Jack
    Dylan Grazer. The video begins with two young sea monsters as
    they venture above the surface to experience an unforgettable
    summer with their new human friend, who encourages them to try
    a bunch of things they think are impossible to do. Check out
    the video in the player below, along with the new poster!

    Trailer: (2mins 25secs)



    Originally scheduled for a theatrical release, the film is now
    slated for a Disney+ premiere on Friday, June 18, with no extra
    fee, as a special offering to kick-off the summer season.
    However, it is still expected to arrive in international
    theaters where Disney+ isn't available yet.

    Luca will tell a fun and heartwarming story about friendship and
    stepping out of your comfort zone with two teenage sea monsters
    who experience a life-changing summer. Set in a beautiful
    seaside town on the Italian Riviera, this coming-of-age adventure
    centers around 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.

    The animated film will be led by Jacob Tremblay (Room, The Little
    Mermaid) as Luca Paguro, a bright and inventive 13-year-old sea
    monster with endless curiosity-especially when it comes to the
    mysterious world above the sea; Jack Dylan Grazer (Shazam!) as
    Alberto Scorfano, an independent, free-spirited teenage sea
    monster with unbridled enthusiasm for the human world.; and Emma
    Berman as Giulia, an outgoing and charming adventurer who
    befriends Luca and Alberto.

    It will also feature the voices of Maya Rudolph (Big Hero 6, The
    Willoughbys) as Luca's mother Daniela, Marco Barricelli as
    Giulia's father Massimo, and Jim Gaffigan as Luca's father's

    Luca is directed by Italian filmmaker Enrico Casarosa in his
    feature-length directorial debut with Andrea Warren (Lava, Cars 3)
    set as a producer. Casarosa, who has worked on iconic animated
    films such as Cars, Ratatouille, Up, The Good Dinosaur, Coco and
    Incredibles 2, has been with Pixar since 2006 as a storyboard
    artist and writer.
