For two weeks of distribution, the Pixar cartoon “Luka” about two Italian boys who hide that they are in fact sea monsters, managed to conquer the Worldn audience and collect more than 250 million rubles. Moviestart has put together interesting facts about the creation of this animated adventure in the heart of the Riviera.
More than 1,200 children auditioned for the roles of the three main characters in the film.
The pandemic has made its own adjustments to the usual voice acting process. According to producer Andrea Warren, it was an amazing and sometimes bizarre experience. All the actors voiced their characters at home, mostly in the toilets due to the specifics of the acoustics.
Many Pixar films seem timeless, but in reality, Luca takes place in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
Pixar is known for its amazing attention to detail and original character designs. So, on the body of Luke in the form of a sea monster, as many as 3,436 scales are created.
Luca is the debut feature film directed and written by Enrico Casarosa. Prior to that, in 2011, he directed the animated short “Moon”, which was nominated for an Academy Award.
The film is dedicated to the Italian composer Ennio Morrison. The creators wanted him to become the author of the soundtrack for the picture, but the composer died before he was asked to do so.
