Pixar’s latest film Luca, which was released exclusively on Disney Plus on June 18th, is now available across a variety of other Digital and physical media platforms as of this week.

Set on the Italian Riviera, and loosely based on director Enrico Casarosa’s own childhood in Italy, Luca follows two young sea monsters named Luca (Jacob Tremblay) and Alberto (Jack Dylan Grazer), who find themselves having an adventure on land with Giulia (Emma Berman), but having to keep their identities a secret from the townsfolk.

I simply adored this movie. For more on the film itself, you can read my full 3.5-star review right here. A full list of the bonus features included on the Blu-ray and 4K editions, taken from the press release, is below.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Deleted Scenes
    • 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.”
    • Sea Monster Cannery – Luca dreams about a magical place filled with Vespas and gelato, but things aren’t quite what they seem.

Luca is a Walt Disney Home Entertainment release. It’s 95 minutes and rated PG.
