If you've been caught off-guard by the arrival of Pixar's latest movie, you're probably wondering how to watch Luca online (it's been overshadowed by a certain God of Mischief, after all). Luckily, it's easy to find no matter where you are in the world - you can stream Luca via a normal Disney Plus subscription (opens in new tab). That's because it's exclusive to the Disney streaming service.

Are there any deals that will let you watch Luca online for less, though? Because the Disney Plus free trial no longer exists, your cheapest option would be to pick up a single month of the service for $7.99 in the US (opens in new tab) or £7.99 in the UK (opens in new tab). If you just want to stream Luca and then bounce, you can always cancel before you're charged for the second month. Just make sure you get as much use out of it as you can ahead of leaving - there's a lot of great stuff on Disney's streaming service, including live-action Star Wars and Marvel shows.

Still a little fuzzy over what Luca's about? Basically, Pixar's new movie is a coming-of-age story featuring two kids and their summer along the Italian Riviera - but there's a fun twist. Namely, they're sea monsters pretending to be human. It's heartfelt, sweet, and truly gorgeous to look at. In fact, this might be one of Pixar's prettiest works to date.

Ready to go? Here's how to watch Luca online right away and get the best deal via a Disney Plus sign-up.
