'Luca': Air time, how to live stream Disney Plus comedy animation
Disney's upcoming animated film 'Luca' is about the friendship between two sea monsters and how they are threatened by a secret
A summer full of gelato and Vespa rides sounds like perfection and it is for friends Luca Paguro (Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto Scorfano (Jack Dylan Grazer) in Disney Plus' upcoming film 'Luca'. However, underneath what seems like an easy-breezy summer, lurks a pretty deep secret, quite literally. Luca and Alberto are both actually sea monsters, who have to keep their identities a secret from the locals of the beautiful seaside town they decide to have their adventures in. It looks like sea monsters or not, the love for Italy and gelato is universal.
According to Insider.com, 'Luca' will play at only one theatre, the historic El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, marking it the first time a Pixar movie will be screened at a theater since the pandemic began. 'Soul' was the first Pixar movie in 26 years to not release in theatres due to the pandemic and went straight to streaming.
'Luca' will begin streaming on Disney Plus on June 18.

For as many 'fishy' moments there are in 'Luca', there are just as many funny moments as well. Get set to laugh out loud at this trailer which promises fun for the kids and an Italian armchair vacation for parents.
