Lava online movie review - An unexpected Surprise
When I took my niece to go see "Inside Out" As the previews run their course we thought along with everyone in the theater thought the movie was about the start.
But low behold we were greeted with this short little movie called "Lava". My niece and I look at each other surprised and thrown off by this little feature that came on but actually it was a nice surprise to have a short little animation feature before the movie started kind of like a double feature which I think all Disney movies should have more of with their movies in the animation and family side of course.
The movie tells a love story about a Volcano called Uku (Voiced by Kuana Torres Kahele) who sings every day for a thousand years to a female volcano named Lele (Voiced by Napua Greig).
I'm trying to keep it spoiler free because the only way to fully understand the story is by watching it on screen with "Inside Out" but the movie itself is really a nice little surprise and unexpected because when you think you're about to watch the movie you paid to see you get a special bonus.
The animation in this short is really amazing and superb as Pixar once again show case their animated talents and they really did a wonderful job as everything from the design of the volcano to the ocean is very well done and shows just amazing animation can be done if you do it right. The Song they sing in the movie to tell the story is quite surprising how they created such a interesting song for the short
Overall Lava is a nice surprise and really smart of Disney/Pixar part to have play with "Inside Out" like a few say it's reason enough to go watch "Inside out".
I give Lava an 9 out of 10
