“Luca,” the new straight-to-Disney Plus film from Pixar, tells the story of a sea monster who takes the form of a human boy when he’s on land. All Disney Plus subscribers can stream the movie beginning June 18.
The film comes from the mind of Enrico Casarosa, an Academy Award nominee who grew up in Genoa, Italy. Casarosa based elements of the film on his childhood and set the story on the Italian Riviera. “Luca” stars the voices of Jacob Tremblay (“Room”), Jack Dylan Grazer (“It”), Sacha Baron Cohen (“Borat”), and Maya Rudolph (“Saturday Night Live”).
The film has received critical acclaim, and currently holds a “91% Fresh” rating on review aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes.
