Pixar has announced their latest short film, Lava, directed by James Ford Murphy, a studio veteran who has animated on the company’s films since A Bug’s Life. Lava is described as a musical love story that takes place over millions of years, “inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes.” The short will be released on June 19th, 2015, in front of Pete Docter’s next feature Inside Out.

    A musical short ? I know I probably shouldn’t, but I’m getting Fantasia vibes. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

      If Pixar tried to do a Fantasia short, I’m pretty sure it would be awesome.
