LUCA Featurette Highlights How Filmmakers Captured The Magic Of The Italian Riviera

Director and native Italian Enrico Casarosa takes us behind the scenes as members of Disney and Pixar's Luca trekked the Italian coastline as part of their research for the upcoming animated film.

Luca's "Sea Monsters" video clip landed yesterday and along with it Diseny and Pixar released a new featurette highlighting how the filmmakers captured the magic of the Italian Riviera. Led by director and native Italian Enrico Casarosa, members of the team behind Disney and Pixar’s Luca trekked to the Italian coastline as part of two research trips for the film. From the color of the water to the layout of the town square, the look of Luca is inspired by real places, Italian history and Japanese artistry.

In this new featurette, Casarosa, producer Andrea Warren and cast members Jacob Tremblay, Jack Dylan Grazer, Maya Rudolph and Jim Gaffigan offer us a behind-the-scenese glimpse at the stunning and stylized look of that was created for Luca.

Disney and Pixar's original feature film Luca is a fun and heartwarming story about friendship, stepping out of your comfort zone and two teenage sea monsters who experience a life-changing summer. “This movie is about the friendships that change us,” says director Enrico Casarosa. “It's a love letter to the summers of our youth—those formative years when you're finding yourself.”

Adds producer Andrea Warren, “It's a magical coming-of-age-story about remembering the people who shaped us along the way.”

Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Luca is a story about one boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, Alberto, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: they are both sea monsters from another world just below the water's surface.

Luca begins streaming exclusively on Disney+ for all subsribers beginning June 18th. Will you be watching? Sound off in the comments below!
