﻿We first met Alberto in Luca which came out earlier this year. The part-sea monster, part-teenager befriended the title character and the two became fast friends. Alberto took Luca, who was also a sea monster, under his wing to introduce him to the human world, something that Alberto was well versed in and excited to share with his newfound friend. The film was not released in theaters (due to the pandemic) but instead released on Disney+.﻿ If you have not seen Luca yet, I highly recommend watching it before the new short arrives on November 12th, 2021.
﻿The new shorts are a great way to put out content quickly as well as a way to test the waters on characters both old and new. We have seen the success of this by the brand new series Monsters at Work and Doug’s Day Out.﻿ Although Luca was very successful and it was rumored that a true sequel film was on the table, it looks as though Pixar has three other movies on their plate in the next year and beyond.
﻿In the meantime though we can enjoy the easy life with sea creatures, pasta, and Vespas. Hopefully, this will lead into a new short or series because I think these characters have a lot more story to tell. What do you think of the brand new trailer? And how would rank Luca among the other Pixar films and characters we have grown to love over the years? Leave us your comments and don’t forget to follow MovieWeb for all the news and trailers.
