Pixar Shares Details About Next Original Film ‘Luca’

Pixar announced its next original animated movie will be called “Luca,” and will release in U.S. theaters next summer.

Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) is directing the film, which is expected to open on the big screen on June 18, 2021.

“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,’” Casarosa 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.”

“Luca” is a coming-of-age story about a young boy in Italy, who shares in adventures on the Italian Riviera with his newfound best friend. But a dark secret about his true identity seeks to threaten that bond.
