Eva Noblezada voices Sam Greenfield, the unluckiest person in the world. Throughout the wholesome film Luck, the 18-year-old protagonist has experienced unfortunate events, minor disasters, and bad timing.

They can also be major ones. Her head is hit by random objects, slips and trips, and nearly everything she touches breaks. As a perpetual optimist, Sam looks on the bright side of life despite her general misfortune.

You are not the only one blown away by Apple's extensive marketing campaign. In Luck, Pixar tells a hopeful, detailed tale that feels like something out of the animation behemoth, but it's not quite that. According to Luck, Sam comes into better fortunes for a short period, loses that opportunity, and then seeks to regain it.

As a result of Skydance Animation's hiring of controversial Pixar co-founder John Lasseter in 2019, the project is the brainchild of Skydance Animation. After egregious behavior, including inappropriate touching and kissing, Lasseter resigned from Disney Pixar a year before the announcement.

A project that had already started under Lasseter underwent dramatic changes after he was hired. The original director of the film, Alessandro Carloni, and Emma Thompson, who was supposed to voice an unavailable character, left the project. Thompson resigned because Lasseter was hired, and Peggy Holmes replaced Carloni.

It possesses some of the same vividness and mood as Monsters, Inc. and Inside Out Pixar projects, capturing the mood and atmosphere of never seen, or imagined, worlds that we experience in Luck now, streaming on Apple TV+ on August 5.

Sam's story and subsequent adventures provide Luck with his sweetness. The young protagonist starts a new job, moves into her apartment, and takes online college courses early in the film.

Her age of 18 marks her last year in foster care because she was never adopted. A bittersweet moment awaits Hazel, who is leaving the Summerland Home for Girls and leaving her closest friend, Hazel (Adelynn Spoon), also leaving.

Summerland is not a comfortable place to live because Sam draws disasters. She misses her morning class on her first day as an adult and gets up less than an hour before she has to show up at Flowers & More

The toast fell jelly-side down on the floor, and the bike tire deflated after locking herself in the bathroom. Her boss (Lil Rel Howery) assigns Sam to cart patrol because Sam destroys so much merchandise.

The upbeat score of John Debney accompanied Sam's optimistic attitude despite his first-day blunders. Hazel's weekend visit with a potential family was canceled. She won't wish for Luck until she finds out that her weekend visit with a potential family was canceled.

As Hazel's mood worsens, Sam promises to find a lucky penny for her (a charm collector) so that the next couple she sees might adopt her.

As Sam and Bob prepare to take on the Beast, they enlist the aid of Gerry (Colin O'Donoghue), a leprechaun, and Jeff, a cheeky unicorn (Flula Borg), who is also part of the magic community.

They are on a mission to save the Land of Luck after wanting to help Hazel. Sam's learning about friends, chosen family, and Luck along the way matters most during their expeditions and throughout the film.
