You're gonna fall in lava
Source: An Exclusive First Look at the Upcoming Pixar Short 'Lava'
Last month, we were introduced to Uku, one of the stars of the Pixar geographic romantic animated short slated to front Inside Out in August 2015. Today, we get another look at the man-mountain, this time in action (well as much action as an anthropomorphic volcano can provide).
Director James Ford Murphy said that he is enahancing the feeling of movement for Uku by his surroundins -- birds, dolphins, whales, clouds, and lava. For Uku's face, he used a mix of one of the short's musicians Kuana Torres Kahele, Jackie Gleason, and the bulldog from a Chuck Jones cartoon.

So, how did it turn out? Here's a sneak peek, you be the judge:
Lava will flow before the feature length Inside Out on August 19, 2015.
