    People Are Stanning Luca And Alberto From Pixar's "Luca" And Aren't Being Shy About It

    "Too pure for this world..."

    If you've dipped your toes into the luscious world of Pixar's Luca, you've beheld the pure sweetness that is Luca and Alberto's friendship.

    There's a lot of "are they or aren't they a couple" energy, but either way they have so much genuine care, respect, and affection for each other that it has to be celebrated!

    (Though a lil' gay crush is fun to celebrate extra, too.)

    Fans of the precocious pair are not being shy with the infatuation, and it's clear these guys are the duo of the summer (so far).

    Check out the web going wild on the Luca and Alberto front.

    🚨Warning: Spoilers ahead for Luca.🚨

    Some people can barely handle the sweetness...

    #PixarLuca is such a beautiful movie!! I couldn't resist drawing this haha. @sketchcrawl GO WATCH IT! <3 #Pixar #luca #alberto

    And there are multifaceted discussions about the metaphors Luca and Alberto could represent for queerness, outsiders, and unity.

    12.

    #Alberto is the most important character in #Luca bc he represents queer kids who have a traumatic upbringing caused by unaccepting parents who abandon/refuse to support them, and by choosing to break the cycle of abuse, he ALSO sacrifices his own dreams for Luca to reach his

    Like #Luca and #Alberto aren't even in a relationship. I can definitely see them as being friends due to their struggles with queerness in a world that "won't always accept him" hell I went through that in middleschool. #lucamovie

    A lot of debating about #Luca and #Alberto in terms of sexuality but CONSIDER: how do we know they're cis? what's gender like under the sea? can/should they fit into a binary at all? part of both worlds but identifying as neither full time--Are they perhaps both #nonbinary?

    Twitter: @2orangebirbs

    Plus there's a faction of folks who see serious parallels between Luca and Call Me by Your Name.

    16.

    This HAS to be connected in some way, I mean come on #Luca

    I think it’s the 1st time we went from a live action to an animated film #Luca #CallMeByYourName

    Nobody can convince me that this 2 movie is not the same... With some alterations of course.... #Luca #CallMeByYourName

    And, of course, there's a ship name (#LUBERTO) for the pair that leads to endless fancams, fanfic, and art.
