Key Facts

  1. As director Enrico Casarosa explains in a statement (7/31/2020), "This is 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 set the course of who we want to become 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 change Luca.”
  2. La Luna director Enrico Casarosa is helming the Disney / Pixar animated film. La Luna was a 2012 Pixar short (7 mins) about a young boy who reaches for the moon, but doesn't know whether to take the lead of his father or his grandpa.
