Families can take an Italian getaway next year with Pixar’s latest film. The adventure will be jam-packed with gelato, pasta, scooter rides — and sea monsters.

Luca takes place on the Italian Riviera, where a young boy goes on adventures with his best friend, who just happens to be hiding that he is actually a sea monster from a  world just below the crystal-clear water’s surface. We don’t know yet where the plot will go with the story but since it is Pixar, we can pretty much guarantee that grown adults will be crying within the first ten minutes.

At its core, the film is about childhood friendships and how they impact us (what did I say about crying?), says the Academy-Award nominated director Enrico Casarosa in a press release. He promises the story will bring a once-in-a-lifetime adventure for Luca and ultimately change his life forever.

Families can find Luca in theaters next year on June 18.
