Luca, Casarosa’s Pixar film is a hymn to friendship
As Casarosa recently told IndieWire microphones, the film was inspired by his experiences as a teenager and from his relationship with his best friend since then.
Luca talks about the relationship with my best friend, Alberto. As a teenager I was very shy and kept under a glass jar by my family when I met [Alberto], I found that he was a free spirit and that his family weren’t very present, and he never missed a chance to get into trouble.
The film is intended to be a timely lesson on the need for inclusion and understanding, especially when it comes to growing children like Luca and Alberto. “The other side of being a kid is that you always feel like you are the outsider“Said Casarosa. “My friend and I felt like losers every time we went out. And I love how the sea monster is a wonderful metaphor for feeling different“.
