Disney and Pixar’s latest hit Luca is set for a physical release! Luca released on Disney+ in June and has garnered rave reviews since. Starting August 22 the film will be available in Blu-ray, Digital, DVD, and 4K formats.
Directed by Enrico Casarosa (La Luna), Luca is a coming-of-age story that follows a boy named Luca as he sets out to experience an unforgettable summer with his newfound best friend in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera. Their fun is threatened by a deeply-held secret: they are part of another world just below the surface full of sea monsters.
The following special features will be available in the packages. Please note that features vary by product and retailer:
- Our Italian Inspiration – Experience the joy of discovery as Pixar artists travel to Cinque Terre, Italy, to absorb the beauty and culture of the coastal region which inspired the characters and the quintessential Italian backdrop of Luca.
