Pixar Short ‘LAVA’ Now on Disney Movies Anywhere

Directed by James Ford Murphy, Pixar’s newest short ‘LAVA’ is currently in theaters playing ahead of Pete Docter’s ‘Inside Out.’

Pixar’s newest short LAVA will be available to watch exclusively on digital on the Disney Movies Anywhere app for iPhone, iPad or iPod touch for a limited two week window starting July 30th.

Directed by James Ford Murphy, the seven-minute short is currently in theaters playing ahead of Pete Docter’s Inside Out. Disney Movies Anywhere offers the only place where you can fall in “lava” with LAVA from the comfort of your own home.

Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, Lava is a musical love story between two mountains -- Uku and Lele -- that takes place over millions of years. The musical love story features a song titled "Lava," which Murphy wrote after learning to play the ukulele in order to pitch the project, and is performed in the film by Hawaiian recording artists Kuana Torres Kahele and Napua Greig.
