Luca’s director says the film is about friendship, but viewers are claiming it as Pixar’s first LGBTQ + film.

Luca is finally out on Disney + and viewers are praising the Pixar movie for its queer coding: both protagonists appear to be gay.

Luca tells the story of Luca, a teenage sea monster who can take human form and dreams of exploring life outside the water. In the film, he meets Alberto, another teenage sea monster who shows him what the world looks like on earth. The two quickly get closer and plan to get a Vespa and travel the world. They regularly hold hands and look at each other with envy. They also face prejudices from humans because they are different and have to hide from them who they are.

At the end of the movie, Luca’s mother worries about whether or not humans will accept Luca and his grandmother says, “Some people, they will never accept him but others will and he seems to know how. find the right ones. “

LGBTQ + viewers around the world have connected to the film and the memes and reactions are both healthy and hilarious.

Discussing whether Luca is a gay love story, director Enrico Casarosa told Playserver, “I really wanted to talk about a friendship before girlfriends and boyfriends got in the way.” He then added, “It was about their friendship in this pre-puberty world. The kind of friendship that’s going to get you in trouble, push you to change, push you to find yourself.”

Despite what Enrico has said, many believe queer themes are too apparent to ignore. One person tweeted: “I just saw Luca, and I don’t care what other people say, this is Disney / Pixar’s first gay animated film. Feeling like you have to hide a part of you- even, meet someone like you 4 the first time, strangers calling you and your monster “friends”, finding the right ones. I cried. “

Another person tweeted: “I just looked at Luca and now I’m crying for a gay fish, what the hell is that.”

It should also be noted that although Casarosa said that Luca isn’t a gay love story, he didn’t explicitly say whether Luca and Alberto are gay or not. In other words, it’s possible that it’s still an LGBTQ + story, regardless of the romance.
