Lava: Pixar’s New Short Musical Love Story

Pixar’s 2015 feature film, “Inside Out,” is now less than one year away from its release.  But with screenings of clips of the film at the Annecy Film Festival, it has generated great buzz in recent weeks. To celebrate the fact that its release is now less than one year away, Disney/Pixar unfolded “Lava.” Read MNG’s report on “Lava,” to learn more about the Pixar’s new short musical love story.

In its brief synopsis “Lava” is described as a musical love story. Inspired by the secluded splendor of tropical islands and the fiery fascination of ocean volcanoes, “Lava” is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.


Directed by James Ford Murphy and producer Andrea Warren from Pixar Animation Studios, “Lava” opens in theaters on June 19, 2015, next to “Inside Out.”

As the poster suggests, all the animals in the water (pairs of fish, turtle) and in the sky (pair of birds) all have companions. On the other hand, in the midpoint, a volcano can be seen, which appears to be unaccompanied, suggesting that the volcano will be the leading star.

The expectations are high because Pixar’s “Boundin,” had wonderful music and lyrics. 2013’s “The Blue Umbrella,” had great music but no lyrics. We will have to wait and see whether in which combination “Lava” will entertain us.

James Ford Murphy, a Pixar expert has been with the studio for a long time. Murphy will debut as director, so viewers can anticipate that he will bring an exceptional visualization.  At the studio, the shorts have emerged to be more imaginative than the features. So the fans look forward to Pixar shorts every year.

Lava hits theaters on June 19, 2015, flanking with “Inside Out.” Until then, we will keep you updated about the new developments. And that’s it for MNG’s report about “Lava,” Pixar’s new short musical love story.
