Get ready for a seafaring journey this weekend! Disney and Pixar's latest film, Luca, will arrive on Disney+ this Friday, June 18, starring Jacob Tremblay and Jack Dylan Grazer as best friend's Luca and Alberto, teenage sea monsters who take to the land and pose as humans to try and have the summer of their lives in Italy.

"At the heart of it was a story of a friendship and wanting to really go back to being kids and the summers of youth and the friendships of youth that helped us find ourselves," director Enrico Casarosa told ET regarding what inspired the movie. "I think so many of us have these friendships that are right smack in the middle of when we're just leaving the confines of the family, that really help define our identity."
