Pixar Animation Studios announced on Thursday that its next original animated film, Luca, would be released in the United States in June 2021.

The studio tweeted that the film would be directed by Enrico Casarosa, who previously directed the Oscar-nominated short film La Luna (2012), and produced by Andrea Warren, who is known for producing the short film Lava (2014).

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)
