Disney has released two stills from the short that will be paired with Big Hero 6, called “Feast.” It follows a man’s love life as seen throughout the eyes of his dog, Winston. That is a really fun concept, and the dog is adorable.
Disney/Pixar have also released a clip from their upcoming short “Lava,” which will screen in front of Inside Out starting June 19, 2015. The short, in which a volcano sings about his longing for love, was directed by James Ford Murphy. Murphy was inspired by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole’s classic mashup of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and “What a Wonderful World,” and you can hear it in the song. As for the look of the volcano, according to Yahoo,
To create the face of the mountain, Murphy used an amalgam of the faces of Kuahna Torres Kahele, the musician who is the voice of the mountain; Honeymooners star Jackie Gleeson, and the bulldog in the Chuck Jones animated classic “Feed the Kitty,” which Murphy considers perhaps his all-time favorite cartoon. “That cartoon has so much heart and so much of the humor comes from genuine emotion,” he says. “That was a major inspiration for us.”
I can’t wait to see the whole thing.
