Pixar announced its next original animated film, to be called “Luca”, an adventure adventure coming to Italy. It will be released in American theaters next summer.

“It’s a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often dictate who we want to be. And it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in ‘Luca,’ “. So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally transform Mona . “
“Luca” centers on a young boy living on the Italian Riviera, who shares a thrill with his new friend. But a deep secret about his true identity (he is a sea monster from another world just below the surface of the water) wants to endanger that bond. Voice cast is yet to be announced.
Before “Luca” sees the first film on its big screen, Pixar slated “Soul” to premiere on 20 November. Disney delayed the film, which was originally scheduled for June, due to a prolonged theater closure due to a coronovirus epidemic. “Soul” follows a middle-school music teacher (voiced by Jamie Foxx), whose dreams of being a jazz artist are put into an accident, leaving her soul with her body.
Earlier this year, Pixar’s fantasy adventure “Onward” forced theaters to close before the global health crisis. It finished its box office globally with $ 100 million before it was released early on Disney’s rental platform.
