The movie industry is showing some signs of revival as we go closer to the release dates of delayed movies this year due to the coronavirus lockdowns. As for Disney and Pixar, “Soul” and “Luca” are going to be hitting theaters soon.
Disney and Pixar were supposed to release its 2020 animated film “Soul” in June featuring the voices of Jamie Fox (Ray, Dream Girls), Tina Fey (Mean Girls, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot), Questlove (The Roots, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon), Phylicia Rashad (A Raisin in the Sun, Into the Woods), Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Black-ish), and Angela Basset (What’s Love Got to Do With It, Boyz n the Hood), and directed by Pete Docter (Monsters Inc., Inside Out). The film was later pushed to a November release, but Disney and Pixar continue to tease those young at heart with more.
On Thursday, Disney shared details about the film Luca on its Instagram and Twitter accounts, announcing the animated film will be directed by Enrico Casarora and produced by Andrea Warren. Casarora had been working in Pixar for more than a decade now, working as a storyboard artist for the animated films “Up” and “Ratatouille,” while Warren has previously produced “Cars 3.”
The film will feature a boy named Luca who “will take audiences to a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera” as he goes through his unforgettable summer experience. The animation is set to be released in theaters next year.
