Since virtually every adult in the world has visited the Cinque Terre, it's time to virtually prime the next generation. A new Pixar movie, 'Luca' is set in the CT. https://www.lifeinitaly.com/news/pixar-movie-luca-italy/
Very cute! I'll keep an eye out for this movie.
Thanks for the heads up, Mike.
Wow, the link also includes Rick Steves’ overview of the CT, for anyone who hasn’t visited there yet. In the movie, will Rick play himself, I wonder? And is the seagull in the film going to be a real wisecracker? Voiced by an American actor using an Italian accent?
Thanks for posting that. It looks like a fun movie for my grand children so I'll watch for it.
I hope this doesn't mean Disney cruise ships visiting the Cinque Terre. (Disney owns Pixar.) As if the Cinque Terre isn't busy enough. (During normal times.)
I haven't been to the CT but since my wife tells me to stop acting like a child your observation is likely correct.
Oh no, I hope this doesn't generate even more interest to CT, I was hoping to keep this place to myself.
I will watch it for the scenery!
Luca, the Disney movie, being (finally) released in the US June 18. The film premiered at the Aquarium of Genoa on June 13 and it's scheduled to be released direct-to-streaming on Disney+. Monterosso will have a pair of effigies of the main characters on the beach for 2 months. In September, Luca will return to being a cute kid's name or an American misspelling of Lucca.
