Pixar’s new movie Luca is streaming on Disney+, but does it have a post-credits scene? Here’s how not to miss out on Luca’s whole story.
Luca streams on Disney+ from Friday, June 18, 2021, but does it have a post-credits scene? The latest feature from Pixar and Disney tells the story of a young boy who is secretly a sea monster, having the best summer of his life as he meets friends Alberto and Giulia, explore the Italian Riviera town of Portorosso, and tries to achieve his dreams. The voice cast is led by Jacob Tremblay (Room) and Jack Dylan Grazer (IT), and also includes newcomer Emma Berman, alongside Maya Rudolf and Jim Gaffigan.
The upbeat and bright Pixar movie Luca will stream exclusively on Disney+, controversially foregoing a theatrical release, and even eschewing a Premier Access fee such as what other Disney offerings have done recently, including Mulan, Raya and the Last Dragon, and Cruella. The movie contravened several Pixar animation traditions to develop its own style that suited Luca’s story best and depicts a beautiful setting inspired by the real-life Italian Riviera.
Disney movies lately have often included a post-credits scene (e.g. Cruella) that adds to the story of the main feature, or hints at a sequel. Luca does have a post-credits scene, so fans will want to stick around to see a little extra of the story. Not only that, but the main credits also feature cute illustrations suggesting what happened to the main characters after the end of the main story, so it’s double worthwhile for fans of the movie to continue watching on Disney+ as the credits roll and the post-credits scene plays.
Without going into too much detail, the post-credits scene for Luca is a humorous callback to an earlier scene featuring Luca’s transparent Uncle Ugo (voiced by Sacha Baron Cohen) from “the deep.” It depicts Uncle Ugo in his natural habitat, tasting a sampling of the best it has to offer – darkness, his own speech, and whale carcass. It’s a short but humorous moment that pays off Baron Cohen’s earlier bit, where Luca’s parents threaten to punish him by sending him to the deep with Ugo.
Even though Luca’s post-credits scene is short, it’s certainly worth viewers’ while to stick around for the credits. The director of Luca, Enrico Casarosa, is a renowned storyboard artist and continues the story of his characters in cute images over the end credits. The vignettes see Luca and Giulia attending school, hints at Alberto’s life with Massimo as he becomes a fisherman, and shows a few scenes of the sea monsters further integrating with the human population of Portorosso. Both the end credits and the post-credits scene for Luca add extra depth and humor to an already rich and entertaining story, and it’s recommended that audiences stick around to appreciate the entire experience.
