Disney and Pixar have a long track record of making movies about fish out of water characters. You know the story, a shy or sheltered child who longs to explore meets another child who is out in the world and shows them things they could never imagine until they have a falling out, only to reconcile and have a happy ending.
Luca, the latest film from Pixar, is very much a film that, in the broad strokes, you’ve seen before. In the details though, you are going to find that Pixar warmth, charm, and heart.
Disney Animation Studios has had a bit of a resurgence lately and this fall they’re pretty much going to cement the idea that they are the Disney of animation again with this collaboration with Marvel because both of those names plus a movie that looks like it might be great are going to be mean dolla dolla bills yo.
Or whatever the kids these days are saying. Let’s watch!
