Walt Disney Studios and Pixar have released a brand new Luca clip for Disney+’s upcoming animated film, featuring the voices of Jacob Tremblay and Jack Dylan Grazer. The video provides us a preview of Luca and Alberto’s awkward encounter with Giulia’s intimidating father, voiced by Marco Barricelli, who happens to be a devoted sea monster hunter. The film is currently scheduled to debut on Friday, June 18, exclusively on Disney+ with no extra fee.
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Luca is a fun and heartwarming story about friendship and stepping out of your comfort zone with two teenage sea monsters who experience a life-changing summer. This coming-of-age adventure centers around one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta, and endless scooter rides. Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface.

Joining them are Maya Rudolph, Marco Barricelli, and Jim Gaffigan along with Sandy Martin, Saverio Raimondo, Marina Massironi, and Giacomo Gianniotti.
