Pixar has released a trailer for Luca, an animated film featuring two friends who appear as typical Italian kids but are revealed to be sea creatures whenever they get wet. Delightful!
Set in a beautiful seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s original feature film “Luca” is 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. Directed by Academy Award® nominee Enrico Casarosa (“La Luna”) and produced by Andrea Warren (“Lava,” “Cars 3”).
Mermaids are a huge theme among trans and gender diverse youth. In the UK, one of the oldest charities serving this community is called Mermaids. Disney princesses for a new generation! Watch for the film this June.
