Director Enrico Casarosa said he was inspired by Japanese animation master Hayao Miyazaki.

A video conference of director Enrico Casarosa of Disney Pixar’s animation “Luca” was held on the 21st.

“It is no exaggeration to say that I grew up in Italy and grew up with Japanese animation in the 1980s. I loved it. I enjoyed watching the series ‘Future Boy Conan’. I’m also doing homage in my movie, and I’m encouraged by my friends to cheer up or play pranks.”

“I don’t think Hayao Miyazaki will be able to choose one by pouring out masterpieces. His favorite thing about his work is that he looks at the world with the eyes of a child. Everything around you, no matter how small, is amazed at looking at nature.
I like those lovely eyes. To express that, I thought ‘Luca’ was perfect for a sea monster that went out of the water. Through the main character’s eyes, we also look at the world with our eyes filled with wonder.”

“Luca” is scheduled to be released in June as an emotional healing adventure in which two friends Luca and Alberto hide their identity as sea monsters in a beautiful Italian beach village and spend the best summer they will never forget with a close adventure.
