Luca: Fish Out Of Water Wants A Moped

Today I’m diving into Pixar’s 2021 film Luca. It’s a coming-of-age story about growth and friendship with mermen.

Quick Summary~

Luca is a merman-merboy. đŸŽ¶He wants to be where the people are.đŸŽ¶But humans are dangerous! Good thing he makes a merboy friend named Alberto who pushes him out of the water. His scales turn to flesh and they have a grand old time together at Alberto’s tower making a moped and driving it down a hill. Mom and dad find out Luca went to the surface and decide to send him to the depths of the ocean to live with his uncle. Luca runs away and he and Alberto go to a nearby fishing town to lay low. They find out about a contest to win enough money to buy a moped. But there’s a jerk who has won several years in a row! Good thing they made a new friend named Giulia. Will they win the triathlon contest? Watch on Disney Plus to find out.
