Hi everyone! "Inside Out" is a weird idea and Pixar knows, so get ready for the first clip from the weird short that will play in front of it, "Lava".
Check out the clip, uploaded to Pixar's YouTube channel.
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.”
