Negotiating the Politics of Otherness in Disney's Luca

Analyse Disney’s new animated movie Luca from a cultural andracial angle.By showing everyone to have a place in society, it deconstruct the self-Other binary paving the way for a greater acceptance of all races and cultures.

  • Well, the movie reminded me of the academy award-winning film The Shape of Water, which addresses the self-other binary. Sea-monster can be considered to be a metaphor for the racial or the cultural Other (the immigrants) who are denied a place in the white supremacist society. This is just a suggestion. There are innumerable other ways in which the racial/cultural angle can be applied to an academic analysis of this movie. – Madhukari 3 years ago
