This is the new animated film from Pixar and Disney: After “Onward” and “Soul” comes “Luca”
At the end of 2020, “Soul” will be the second Pixar film of the year (after “Onward: No halves”). In 2021, “Luca” will go to the Italian Riviera – where pasta, ice cream and monsters await us!
After Pixar recently took us on a somewhat different family adventure in “Onward: No Half-Bobs”, Oscar winner Pete Docter (“Above”, “Everything is upside down”) will take us into the music world of New York with “Soul” on November 26, 2020 .
And now we finally know what the popular animation company 2021 has in store for us: “Luca”!
As Disney and Pixar just confirmed, the 24th Pixar movie will hit US cinemas on June 18, 2021. In this country we have to be patient a little longer:
The German theatrical release of “Luca” is September 30, 2021.
The German theatrical release of Vexmovies is September 30, 2021.
“Luca”: That’s what you can expect in the new Pixar film
A dreamy place on the coast of the Italian Riviera: little Luca experiences a lot of exciting adventures between pasta, ice cream and sun with his best friend – who is, however, surrounded by a great secret. Because he’s not a human boy, but a sea monster from a strange world hidden deep in the ocean.
In contrast to “Soul”, “Luca” does not come from an old hand in the animation film business, but from Enrico Casarosa, who is making his feature film debut with it. Casarosa has also worked as a storyboard artist on films such as animated blockbuster hits like “Ratatouille”, “Oben” and “Coco” and has also directed his only work to date – the animated short film “La Luna” nominated for an Oscar.
Not the worst references and absolutely good prerequisites to now after all these years to get your own Pixar movie.
Lots of heart in Italy
“Luca” is supposed to be a heartwarming story about friendship, but at the same time it is a very special and above all personal matter for the director for another reason: Casarosa herself comes from an Italian port city (Genoa) and will undoubtedly do everything possible to help To spray the charm of his homeland in his film.
In a little over a year we will see how well he does this in the cinema. You can get a foretaste of it with a first picture in advance (see article picture above).
By the way, you can watch all Pixar films on Disney * – with the exception of “Onward: No Half-Stuff”, which was only recently released on DVD, Blu-ray and 3D Blu-ray *.
