Disney/Pixar's 'Luca' Debuts First Trailer, Reveals Voice Cast!

Disney and Pixar’s next movie, Luca, finally has its debut trailer!

Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature 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: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.

In addition, the movie just revealed the full voice cast:

Jacob Tremblay lends his voice to 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 voices Alberto Scorfano, an independent, free-spirited teenage sea monster with unbridled enthusiasm for the human world.

Emma Berman provides the voice of Giulia, an outgoing and charming adventurer who befriends Luca and Alberto.

Maya Rudolph voices Daniela, Luca’s mother.

Marco Barricelli voices Massimo, Giulia’s father.

Jim Gaffigan voices Lorenzo, Luca’s father.

The movie will hit theaters on June 18, 2021.

Disney Pixar's 'Soul' Is Skipping Theaters & Heading to Disney+ This Christmas (At No Extra Charge!)

Disney Pixar‘s Soul is officially going straight to streaming.

The anticipated film is no longer getting a theatrical release, and will instead debut exclusively on Disney+ on Christmas Day (December 25) at no extra charge, THR reported on Thursday (October 8).

“The animated tentpole had been set to croon its way into theaters on Nov. 20. The decision to send the movie to Disney+ both underscores the precarious nature of moviegoing amid the ongoing pandemic, and the importance of Disney+, which has amassed more than 60 million subscribers,” THR reported.

The movie’s arrival to Disney+ also differs from the launch of Mulan, which came at a premium price.

“In markets where Disney+ isn’t available, the movie will be released theatrically. Dates are to follow,” THR adds.

Here’s a plot summary: “Joe Gardner is a middle-school band teacher who gets the chance of a lifetime to play at the best jazz club in town. But one small misstep takes him from the streets of New York City to The Great Before – a fantastical place where new souls get their personalities, quirks and interests before they go to Earth. Determined to return to his life, Joe teams up with a precocious soul, 22, who has never understood the appeal of the human experience. As Joe desperately tries to show 22 what’s great about living, he may just discover the answers to some of life’s most important questions.”

The movie features the voices of Jamie Foxx, Tina Fey, Phylicia Rashad, Angela Bassett, Questlove and Daveed Diggs.

The upcoming movie just recently debuted a new trailer and poster – check it out now!

Pixar's Next New Movie is 'Luca' - See the First Look Photo!

Pixar has revealed their next film, titled Luca!

Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the original animated feature 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: he is a sea monster from another world just below the water’s surface.

“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,’” Enrico Casarosa, the film’s director, said in a statement. “So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.”

The movie will hit theaters on June 18, 2021.

Meanwhile, there’s still another Pixar movie that has yet to be released and we’re anxiously awaiting this one!
