Most, if not all of us have at some point felt out of place. The new film Luca takes that to a whole new level.


Exploring Portorosso, a seaside town on the Italian Riviera, the film follows the escapades of best friends Luca and Alberto. Racing down hills, investigating caverns, eating gelato and pasta, the two enjoy all that the town has to offer. What’s the catch? Luca and Alberto are sea-monsters… and the town has a particular… dislike for such creatures. Displayed around the village are motifs and statues depicting not-so-forgiving, in fact, quite brutal consequences if they are found out. Taking on the appearance of humans, the two must navigate their way through the vibrant town without their true identities being discovered. But with their appearance changing through the slightest bit of contact with water, will their adventure of a lifetime take a turn for the worse?


April 28 was when the official trailer was uploaded to the studio’s verified YouTube account ‘Pixar’. Currently it has amassed over 6.9 million views.

February 26, a teaser trailer had also previously been released by the studio.

Cast and Crew

Luca employs the voice acting talents of many talented thespians. Jacob Tremblay portrays 13 year old Luca Paguro, one of the film’s two protagonists. Jack Dylan Grazer plays Alberto Scorfano, Luca’s best friend and fellow sea-monster. Jack Dylan Grazer has also appeared in films ‘IT’ and ‘Shazam!’. Maya Rudolf, of SNL fame, will voice Daniela Paguro, Luca’s mother. Whilst Jim Gaffigan will voice Luca’s father Lorenzo Paguro.

Enrico Casarosa heads the film as its director, and has previously worked on Academy Award nominated short ‘La Luna’. Of the film, the director mentions that it is a deeply personal story,

“My summers were spent on beaches … met my best friend when I was 11. I was really shy and I found this troublemaker of a kid who had a completely different life. I wanted to make a movie about those kinds of friendships that help you grow up.”
