Pixar’s greatest masterpieces come from simple existential questions: What will ‘Luca’ pose to us? From the images that come to us, at least the environment is most suggestive. ‘Luca’, the vibrant film set on the Italian Riviera directed by the director of the short film ‘La Luna’, Enrico Casarosa, will have its premiere this year.
Empire premiered the first look at Luca, the feature film debut as a cartoonist who has a long history within Pixar.
As we have said, the film takes place on the coast of Italy in the middle of summer and follows the central character Luca and his friend Alberto. But here’s a powerful twist: Luca and Alberto are actually sea creatures that look like humans on land, but turn into fish-like creatures underwater. It’s a “riff” from ‘The Little Mermaid’, as described by Empire magazine. ” The couple experiences life where they walk, run and stay in the sun all day, befriending a human girl along the way .”
The film is “deeply special for Casarosa, who has painted on his personal childhood developing upon the Italian Rivera, albeit outwardly the fantasy portion.
“I was born in Genoa and spent summers on the beaches. I met my best friend when I was 11 years old. I was very shy and I met this rowdy boy who had a completely different life. I wanted to make a movie about those kinds of friends that help you to grow “.
According to the producer, the result is a Pixar film that gives tribute to Fellini and other traditional Italian filmmakers, with a touch of Miyazaki in the mix. “It sounds like the summer movie explosion that we will all be desperate for when winter finally ends, ” commented the director.
