Trailer Talk: Ciao Alberto (Disney+ Short)
‘Ciao Alberto’ is a short film that takes place after the events of the 2020 animated film ‘Luca’. It will follow Luca’s friend, Alberto, and his adventures in the seaside town of Portorosso, working as a fisherman.
Next to ‘Coco’, ‘Luca’ is my favourite Pixar film. It was as a very nice surprise during the summer and, while it didn’t carry an important message (like the company’s last film ‘Soul’), it was heart-warming. The characters and world were aspects that I loved and wanted to revisit, so I’m really happy to see a continuation of the story, even if it’s just in the form of a short film.
Unlike ‘Monsters at Work’, the animation here is smooth and delightful; care has clearly been taken to make sure the visual quality reflects that of the feature film, and it shows. One of the strongest aspects of the film were its visuals and animation, so I’m happy to see that the quality has not decreased just because it is a short film.
Because I was wanting a continuation to ‘Luca’, I’m glad that ‘Ciao Alberto’ has been revealed. It looks wonderful and reflects the quality of the feature length film. It also matches the heart-warming nature of it. However, I hope this short will provide a steppingstone towards an official sequel.
