Ciao tutti! Finally, two of my very favorite things together – Disney and Italy. Disney and Pixar’s Luca will be available for steaming at home on Disney+ this Friday, June 18th!
This feature film is a coming-of-age story about one young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer filled with gelato, pasta and endless scooter rides. The name of my blog is Prosecco and Palm Trees folks, so you have to know this is right up my alley.
Luca shares these adventures with his newfound best friend on the Italian Riviera, but all the fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are sea monsters from another world just below the water’s surface…
I’ve linked the official trailer HERE…
The animation looks beautiful, and full of action. Pixar Animation Studios’ 24th feature film is directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”). Award-winning composer Dan Romer (“Beasts of the Southern Wild,” “Maniac”) created the score.
The voice cast features Jacob Tremblay as Luca Paguro, Jack Dylan Grazer as Alberto Scorfano, Emma Berman as Giulia Marcovaldo, Saverio Raimondo as town bully Ercole Visconti, Maya Rudolph as Luca’s mom Daniela, Marco Barricelli as Giulia’s dad Massimo, Jim Gaffigan as Luca’s dad Lorenzo, Sandy Martin as Luca’s grandma, and Giacomo Gianniotti as a local fisherman.
I’m so excited to share my love of Italy with Max and Mila in a way that’s really fun for them. I’ll be making some big plates of pasta this week for dinner and printing out these Luca activity sheets.
I’ve included a few of my favorites below (I love the Italian food and Vespa ones the most!)
