At the same time, there was the first glimpse of Luca’s concept art: a picturesque snapshot of the Italian coast, with a boy – presumably Luca – leaping off the edge of a cliff with another child.
“It’s a deeply personal story for me, not only because it takes place on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the heart of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often determine who we want to become and it is these bonds that are at the heart of our story at Luca, ”said Enrico Casarosa, Director. “So, in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will present an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.”Luca will be part of what is expected to be the animation studio’s most consistent release ever in terms of pure versions. In November, Soul, starring Jamie Foxx, will launch, with Onward having hit theaters earlier this year. After that it’s Luca – a long trip to mainland Europe.
