Luca trailer showcases a coming-of-age tale of a young boy and his best friend who live underwater

Just a month after it was revealed that Pixar’s new animated film Luca will forgo a theatrical release and debut on the Disney Plus streaming service, a new trailer has been released.

While movie theaters around the country are starting to open while COVID-19 restrictions are being relaxed, Luca is just one of many movies that are skipping a theatrical release.

The animated adventure features Jacob Tremblay voicing the title character Luca with Jack Dylan Grazer as his best friend Alberto Scorfano, creatures who live under the sea near Italy but can transform into young boys when they’re above ground.

The trailer begins with young Luca swimming up close to the surface, but he’s too nervous to put his head above water.

He goes back and forth a few times but still can’t muster up the courage to do it, when his friend Alberto is behind him, saying that was ‘hard to watch.’

Luca’s fears of the surface seem to come from his mother Daniela (Maya Rudolph), who angrily tells her son, ‘We do not go anywhere near the surface. Got it?’

Conversely, his best friend Alfredo is seen on the beach, shaking the water off of his body and transforming into a human boy, telling Luca, ‘Everything good is above the surface!’

Alfredo breaks down the list of things better on the surface, like walking, as Luca tries awkwardly to put one foot in front of the other for the first time.

He adds the air, sky and the sun are all better, but when Luca tries to look at the son, Alfredo covers his eyes saying, ‘Whoa, don’t look at it!’

He then takes his hand away and says, ‘Just kidding. Definitely look at it,’ though his first glimpse at the sun startles him and causes him to fall over.

Luca asks Alberto if he’s ever been to the ‘human town’ and his friend says he’s ‘kind of an expert’ as they find some clothes and sneak in under a boat, past a fisherman.

Luca marvels at everything the town has to offer, but they almost get into some trouble when Luca kicks a soccer ball back to some kids.

The ball knocks over the shiny red Vespa scooter owned by Ercole (Saverio Raimondo), the local bully in the charming Italian seaside town of Portorosso, though one of his friends dives under the falling scooter to save it from being scuffed.

‘Someone got lucky today, hm?’ Ercole says, as the kids point to Luca and Alberto, before they’re saved by Giulia Marcovaldo (Emma Berman).

They hop on the cart Giulia’s bike is pulling as Ercole tells them, ‘Go start a club… for losers!’

As they ride away, Giulia tells them that, ‘we underdogs have to look out for each other,’ while Alberto wonders, ‘What’s under the dogs?’

Giulia introduces the boys to her burly father Massimo (Marco Barricelli), who is cutting the head off a fish with a huge cleaver.

When Alberto whispers, ‘What do you think he kills with those?’ Massimo answers, ‘Anything that swims,’ causing Luca to spit water in Alberto’s face… with the water revealing his real sea creature face as they both dive under the table for a moment before popping back up with their normal ‘boy’ faces.

Giulia’s father and the house cat are both quite suspicious of these two from the get-go, but that doesn’t stop the boys from forming a friendship with Giulia.

Luca tells her that her life is, ‘so much more cooler than mine,’ while Ercole adds, ‘there’s something fishy with you two,’ while another shot shows the cat seeing both Luca and Alberto’s sea creature faces.

The trailer winds down with Luca being scared to try something and Alberto trying to fix it by saying he has, ‘a Bruno in your head.’

Alberto tells his friend to say with authority, ‘Silenzio Bruno!’ and after he does it three times, Alberto asks if he can still hear Bruno.

‘Nope, just you,’ Luca says, as Alberto slaps a spaghetti strainer on Luca’s head as a makeshift helmet as they take a beat up old scooter down a hill and off a ramp into the sea, as the title card is revealed.

The final shot sees the boys in the sea, watching a fisherman scream at a boat speeding by, sayin, ‘What’s wrong with you, stupido?’

Back in the human town, Alberto tells Luca to repeat the phrase,  which he does to a couple of old ladies enjoying some gelato, as they proceed to beat the boys with their umbrella and purse as the trailer humorously comes to an end. 

Luca, which also stars Jim Gaffigan and is directed by Enrico Casarosa from a script by Jesse Andrews and Mike Jones, debuts on the Disney Plus streaming service on June 18.
