Is Luca out on DVD?
Set on the Italian Riviera in the 1950¨C1960s, the film centers on Luca Paguro, a sea monster boy with the ability to assume human form while on land, who explores the town of Portorosso with his new best friend, Alberto Scorfano, experiencing a life-changing summer adventure. Luca takes inspiration from Casarosa’s childhood in Genoa; several Pixar artists were sent to the Italian Riviera gathering research from Italian culture and environment. The sea monsters, a “metaphor for feeling different”, were loosely based on old Italian regional myths and folklore. Like La Luna, the design and animation were inspired by hand-drawn and stop motion works and Hayao Miyazaki’s style.
What is the release date for Luca?
Casarosa described the result as a film that “pays homage to Federico Fellini and other classic Italian filmmakers, with a dash of Miyazaki in the mix too”. Luca premiered at the Aquarium of Genoa on June 13, 2021, and was originally set to be theatrically released in the United States on June 18, 2021. However, in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the film was released direct-to-streaming on Disney+, along with a simultaneous limited run at the El Capitan Theatre; it was also released in theaters in countries without the streaming service. The film received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise for its visuals, voice acting, and nostalgic feel.
