He also directed and wrote the short Pixar animated film La Luna. The movie’s screenplay was written by Jesse Andrews and Mike Jones.
The Collider has reported that the movie Luca is going to be set in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera. The plot of the film will be a coming of age story that follows the journey of a young boy, named Luca. One summer Luca meets a friendly sea monster. The young sea monster is able to disguise himself as a human boy. Over the course of the summer the boy and the sea monster form an incredible friendship. The movie’s setting is heavily influenced by Casarosa’s own childhood memories.
