Disney & Pixar’s Official Teaser Trailer for “Luca” with Plenty of Sunshine & The Hit House’s contribution

Everyone’s ready for some summer & sunshine & travel. While we might not all be able to do so safely in actuality, at least Disney & Pixar are giving us a tale of summer fun to look forward to, in Luca! With the heart-warming coming-of-age film & its joyous trailer, they needed to set a tone of summer fun in the sun while on vacation in Italy. Thus The Hit House composer Scott Lee Miller was able to contribute a layering of the classic “You Are My Sunshine” to this Official Teaser Trailer.

Luca, an animated film directed by Academy Award nominee Enrico Casarosa illustrates an unforgettable summer in the Italian Riviera where a young boy named Luca & his new underdog best friends cavort around the seaside town enjoying laughs, gelato, & scooter adventures. But as with any seemingly “too-good-to-be-true” scenario, Luca & his buddy Alberto harbor a secret… They are actually sea monsters (the friendly kind) from the ocean! Who will discover their secret? Will they be ok? Can their youthful exuberance survive a judgmental “real” world? We’ll all find out! Luca stars the voice acting talents of Jacob Tremblay, Jack Dylan Grazer, Emma Berman, Maya Rudolph, Jim Gaffigan, Marco Barricelli, & Saverio Raimondo.

Sunshine, Vitamin D, & sojourns to the Italian Riviera are certainly things we all yearn for, but it just might not be in the cards for 2021… However, we can all experience some of its magic when Disney & Pixar’s Luca arrives in theaters on June 18. At The Hit House we’re all about adding sunshine to every project on which we have the privilege of working. As such it was particularly fun for Scott to contribute the layering from the classic tune for this Teaser Trailer. Just as Luca said, “We can go anywhere. Do anything,” that you, our clients request. From the coldest depths of outer space & fantastical uncharted magical lands, to the azure skies & dulcet tones of vacations on the Mediterranean & everything in between, we’ve got just the song & sound design for you in our extensive music libraries. & if not directly on hand, no problem, we’ll create it custom. Simply sit back, watch this trailer again, envision your next reality & we’ll craft its ideal music!
