Pixar has released the trailer for the upcoming film Luca, but it seems that the two main characters are keeping a very big secret as Luca, voiced by Jacob Tremblay shares, ‘There’s just one thing no one can find out’…
But don’t worry! We’ll let you in on the big secret… Luca and his best friend Alberto, voiced by Jack Dylan Grazer, are both sea monsters who transform into young boys to live in the Italian town they’re obsessed with discovering!
However, there’s one big problem… the residents of the town are also obsessed with something – killing sea monsters. Meanwhile, the two befriend Giulia, a local girl voiced by newcomer Emma Berman.

Luca’s mum is played by Maya Rudolph whilst Jim Gaffigan plays Luca’s father and Marco Barricelli voices Giulia’s dad. The movie was first announced last summer, as explained by director Enrico Casarosa.
‘This is a deeply personal story for me, not only because it’s set on the Italian Riviera where I grew up, but because at the core of this film is a celebration of friendship. Childhood friendships often set the course of who we want to become and it is those bonds that are at the heart of our story in ‘Luca,’’
