Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s original feature film “Luca” is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. Luca (voice of Jacob Tremblay) shares these adventures with his newfound best friend, Alberto (voice of Jack Dylan Grazer), but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface. “Luca” is directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”).

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Luca is Pixar's film about two sea creatures who leave their watery homes to discover the wonders of the surface in a small village on the Italian Riviera. It's a sweet coming-of-age story about courage, curiosity, and friendship -- specifically, that of Luca (voiced by Wonder's Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto (It's Jack Dylan Grazer). There's a bit of silly body humor (nose- and ear-picking) as well as occasional insults in both English and easily understandable Italian, like "trash," "stupido," "idioti," and "jerk." Physical comedy includes injuries from stunts like jumping off of cliffs and trees, riding a bike, and even getting in a tussle with another teen. Scared villagers wield spears and harpoons, and one even throws his at the main characters. Another character likes to use his big knife to chop up fish, much to Luca and Alberto's dismay. Parents and kids who watch together will be able to discuss the movie's appealing setting and its themes, particularly the importance of evaluating others for who they are, not because of their background or heritage.
