Pixar Animation Studios has announced a new short film they are developing called "Lava", and it is set to be shown in front of their upcoming feature film Inside Out.
The studio released a poster and details for the short, which is a musical that will be directed by Pixar’s head of animation, James Ford Murphy. Here's the official synopsis that was released:
Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, “Lava” is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.
It's definitely a vague description, but Collider offers up a little bit more information saying that it's a “a cute, if slight, tale about a lonely Volcano, prone to lament – via song – how he yearns for another to ‘lava.’ Unbeknownst to him, a female volcano lurks below sea level, listening to his ballad.”
Pixar always delivers amazing shorts, and I'm certain that this is going to turn out great.
