Ahead of releasing the first trailer, Pixar has released the first poster for Luca, their upcoming animated adventure set on the Italian Riviera, at the height of summer.
“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,” director Enrico Casarosa said in a previous statement. “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. So in addition to the beauty and charm of the Italian seaside, our film will feature an unforgettable summer adventure that will fundamentally change Luca.”
Luca is currently slated for release June 18th. We’ll likely find out tomorrow if that will be in theaters, Disney+ or a hybrid release.
