Along the crisp white beaches and cerulean waters of the Italian Riviera, an unlikely friendship grows between two young sea monsters disguised as humans.

That's the premise of Pixar's latest feature-length film, "Luca," which debuts Friday on Disney+.

Since 1995, Pixar has released 23 other titles, setting the standard for animated movies. Its films have earned nearly two dozen Academy Awards, including 10 for best picture, and tallied more than $14.5 billion at the global box office.

"It's difficult to imagine [it's been] 26 years since Pixar first opened its animated toy box to the world," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst at Comscore. "From the first 'Toy Story' movie to 'Luca,' Pixar has left an indelible creative mark on the art of animation, built a reputation for storytelling brilliance, and in the process, has generated a global box office fortune."
