Disney Pixar have followed up yesterday’s poster reveal with a trailer release for their newest movie ‘Luca’, along with a confirmation on the voice cast.
Luca will follow last year’s Onward and Soul, and is set in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera. The story follows a young boy’s unforgettable summer filled with scooter rides, pasta and endless gelato.
Voiced by Jacob Tremblay, Luca looks like every other boy and shares adventures with his best friend Alberto, but the pair hold a secret that could threaten their fun: they are actually sea monsters, from a world just below the water’s surface.
The trailer’s release followed yesterday’s poster reveal by Pixar, which cleverly shows Luca’s hidden secret. You can see both below.
Along with the first trailer, we have confirmation of the voice cast for Luca which includes Tremblay as Luca, Jack Dylan Grazer as Alberto, Maya Rudolph as Luca’s mother Daniela and Jim Gaffigan as Luca’s father Lorenzo.
Luca is directed by Enrico Casarosa, marking his feature-length debut after he created the Pixar short La Luna. He’s previously spoken about how the movie is a “deeply personal” one for him given it is set where he grew up and is “a celebration of friendship”.
Luca is slated for a June 18 release, and while UK cinemas are set to be open by then, Luca’s release could still be subject to change.
