Luca is film about two young boys (Alberto Scorfano and Luca Paguro), who are on an adventure in an Italian seaside town. The animation is excellent, it is a Pixar film after all, and the storyline is both touching and funny. My family really enjoyed watching it when it was released earlier this year on Disney Plus!
While in visiting the town of Portorosso, the boys meet a girl named Giulia Marcovaldo who is smart and feisty! However what Giulia doesn’t realize is that the boys have a secret.
Set in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s LUCA is a coming-of-age story about a young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer. Luca shares his amazing adventures with his friend Alberto, but their fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: they’re sea monsters from a world below the water’s surface.
On August 3rd, Luca was released on digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD. That’s great news for those who would like to add it to their personal DVD collection or who don’t have Disney Plus.
This is a movie about two young boys on an adventure in a seaside town in Italy. My family really enjoyed watching it. It’s lighthearted, funny and sweet, perfect for a Saturday night watch!
