Disney has announced that Pixar’s “Luca” will be released on home video formats including digital, 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD in the United States on August 3rd.

Set in a seaside town on the Italian Riviera, Disney and Pixar’s “Luca” is a coming-of-age story about a young boy experiencing an unforgettable summer. Luca shares his amazing adventures with his friend Alberto, but their fun is threatened by a deeply held secret: They’re sea monsters from a world below the water’s surface.

“Luca” was released on Disney+ in June, after being moved from a theatrical release due to the pandemic.  While Disney generally doesn’t release home video versions of its Disney+ Originals, it has for a few select titles including “Soul” and “Mulan”.


The release touts a variety of bonus features including never-before-seen featurettes, deleted scenes and two alternate openings.
