Escape to the beautiful Italian seaside town of Portorosso when Disney and Pixar Luca will be released on August 3rd on digital 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray ™ and DVD. The release touts a wide variety of bonus features including unprecedented featurettes, deleted scenes, and two alternate openings.
In celebration of Luca Turning to the home video, we have your exclusive first look at a bonus feature from the disc. In the exclusive bonus clip entitled “Enrico’s Home”, director Enrico Casarosa talks about how Luca was inspired by growing up in Italy. And the Art Team talks about how the film was mainly inspired by the Cinque Terre on the Italian Riviera! With this film, the filmmakers wanted to portray the essence of Italy – the mountains, the sea, the great hills and the architecture. They even went on a research trip to the country to make sure they could bring that sense of uniqueness and Ligurian flair to the back of the film.
In a coastal town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s Luca is a coming-of-age story about a little boy who has an unforgettable summer. Luca shares his amazing adventures with his friend Alberto, but their fun is threatened by a deeply kept secret: They are sea monsters from a world below the surface.
