Pixar’s summertime story of friendship, Luca, made its world premiere streaming June 18 on Disney+ and has been delighting fans ever since. The great news is that only a month and a half later you can bring home the film on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital on August 3, 2021.
With Pixar’s films, we always look forward to the physical releases to ensure we can watch it in the best available quality — and, because we’re collectors! We’re also excited to dive into all the special features — including two deleted scenes that have alternate openings.
While the list of special features contains a good number of deleted scenes, we would have loved to have seen more details on the film’s production — especially with the unique nature in which this film was created (being created remotely in artist’s homes).
- 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. (Currently on Disney+.)
- Secretly A Sea Monster – Explore the artistry and technical innovation of Luca’s transformation from sea monster to human, and how the theme of transformation is central to the emotional journey of the main characters.
- Best Friends – Best friends can challenge us, inspire us, annoy us, and encourage us. The cast and crew of Luca share their own stories about how besties influenced their lives, and how those experiences informed the creation of screen pals Luca, Alberto, and Giulia.
- Introduction – Director Enrico Casarosa introduces scenes not included in the final version of Luca.
- Starfish Hunt (Alternate Opening) – Luca explores the shore and the sea, gathering mussels and starfish, in this serene alternate opening to the film.
- Isola Del Mare (Alternate Opening) – Luca welcomes viewers to the quiet island he calls home.
- Festa Del Mare – The boys go to a festival filled with fun…and danger.
- Here Comes Giulia – Giulia explores Isola Del Mare, where she meets Luca and Alberto and asks so many questions.
- Gelato Trouble – Giulia offers to treat Luca and Alberto to something called “gelato.”
