Luck is John Lasseter's first animated flick since leaving Disney's Pixar to join Skydance Animation. Now, the man who brought you Toy Story, Cars, Monsters Inc., Finding Nemo, Up, The Incredibles, Wall-E and Ratatouille brings you Luck... so to speak.

The movies centres around Sam Greenfield (Eva Noblezada), a young lady who, having spent her early years in a foster home, is beset by bad luck. From dropping the toast buttered-side down to embarrassing public calamities, Sam is truly cursed. Until, that is, she stumbles on a black cat called Bob (Simon Pegg), who leads her into the magical Land of Luck...

Does Luck measure up to Lasseter's early Pixar classics? The jury's still out on that, but if you're a fan of Willy Wonka-ish family fun, you've certainly lucked out. Luck is available top watch globally as of Friday 5th August 2022. Follow our guide to watch Luck wherever you are in the world.
