Ciao Alberto—Friday, November 12, on Disney+
Set after the events of Disney and Pixar’s Luca, this original short finds Alberto (voiced by Jack Dylan Grazer) enjoying a new life in Portorosso working alongside Massimo (voiced by Marco Barricelli)—the imposing, tattooed, one-armed fisherman of few words. Alberto wants more than anything to impress his mentor—but, of course, it’s easier said than done.
Entrelazados—Friday, November 12, on Disney+
Stream all episodes back-to-back when the first season of this all-new series premieres on Disney+ Day.

Allegra’s life changes drastically when she finds a mysterious bracelet that takes her back to 1994, the year Caterina (Manuela Menéndez) was her age and starting her career at Eleven O’ Clock.
