The Story of Luca
Luca follows the life of a young boy in the summer of Portorosso, Italy, who is more than what may appear on the surface. Disney describes the animation by stating,
"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."
