Luca tells the story of an eponymous boy who experiences an unforgettable summer on the Italian Riviera.
Casarosa said that Luca was a personal project for him because it was set where he grew up and told the story of a friendship. “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,” Casarosa told variety.com.
Pixar, which is a subsidiary of Disney, is scheduled to release the animated film Soul in November. The film is about a music teacher named Joe (voiced by Jamie Foxx) whose soul is transported out of his body and who tries to return to the corporeal world. Soul also features actors Tina Fey and Angela Bassett. (wir/wng)
