While Soul transported us to the bustling streets of New York, Pixar's newest movie Luca, now streaming on Disney+, is like a vacation on the Italian Riviera. The coming of age film is set on the beautiful Mediterranean waterfront and has a cast filled with familiar, funny voices bringing these characters and their fictional small town to life.
Similar to other Pixar films like Coco, Luca centers on a protagonist having a literal out-of-body experience. The titular character is a young teenager who also happens to be a sea monster. He lives under the waves on the coast of an imaginary Italian town called Portorosso, but he dreams of going on land and seeing the city as a human. Luckily for him, sea monsters automatically become human when they dry off on land. But, there are a few characters he meets during his journey that threaten to expose his secret and send him home.
