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 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. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”), “Luca” releases June 17th on Disney Plus.
Recently we had the opportunity to prescreen “Luca” and we thought it would be nice to get the kid’s perspective on this one. So we asked both of the boys a series of questions on the film, check out their answers down below.
Q & A
Q:1 Who was your favorite character in Luca?
G: I really liked Giulia I can relate to her because she wanted to help Luca and Alberto when no one else wanted to. She also was very passionate about winning the race, and she never gave up hope even when others around her bullied her.
S: Alberto was my favorite he helped Luca to believe in himself, and it reminds me of a brotherly relationship like me and Geo have. He was really confident about what he could do.
Q2: What was your favorite part of the movie?
G: That at the end it doesn’t matter who you are human or sea monster, everyone can love each other no matter what they look like. There is so much hate nowadays with people not liking other people just because of the color of their skin. I really liked that in the movie everyone learned to like each other.
S: Now I want to travel the world in a Vespa, I don’t know if they have them here. But I want to travel around in a Vespa or make one like Luca and Alberto. Traveling is something I like doing so that was my favorite part.
Q3: If you could live underwater or in an Italian village which one would you pick?
G: Hmm that’s really hard because I could do a lot for both. But I would like to live in an Italian village. Pasta all the time, lots of friends to play with being on land there are many things I would not be able to do underwater.
S: Living in a village would be for me, you can’t get ice cream underwater and you can’t ride a Vespa. So that’s no water for me!
The kids loved the film, and I have to say we really enjoyed it as well. My husband is half Italian so it was nice to see some representation in the film. There were some funny parts, however, ultimately the best part of the film is the message.
