Dan the Pixar Fan
As you may know, Lava recently had its world premiere at the Hiroshima International Animation Film Festival in Japan.

While I was browsing through Kuana Torres Kahele's (voice of "Uku" the volcano in the film) photos on his official Facebook page, I stumbled upon some new screen shots from the short that he posted during a sound check before the premiere (dated Aug 21st). I can tell this is gonna be a BEAUTIFUL film. 

By the way, can anyone here read the subtitles? : )



Additionally, he also posted this picture below (which most of you probably saw since the official Disney/Pixar Tweeted it and Instagramed it). I have heard speculation all over the place so I wanted to bring it up...is this the first reveal of a new character that we'll be seeing in the film? It is not. Kuana states on his page that he's "
Posing with Lappy, the Festival mascot after the screening. James Ford Murphy, director and Andrea Warren, producer."


After the screening, the crew and cast signed official Lava posters for fans. Who else is extremely jealous!? [smile] 


If you look through his photos, there are some pics from his time at Pixar, including these:


Love the Uku concept art, currently hanging on the wall at Pixar! 

 Definitely stop by his page to see more and to read his captions. Enjoy!

What's really cool from the comments on his Facebook page is that we are learning more details regarding additional screenings. It appears that there will be additional premieres in Sonoma, CA and Telluride, CO - it will be interesting to see when those happen. The good news is that with premieres in the U.S., we should also see more of the Lava posters popping up on eBay after those events - in case you wanted a signed one!

And, I happened to have looked up film festivals in the area of Sonoma & Telluride and I'm guessing it will be shown at the March 25-29, 2015 Sonoma Film Festival and possibly as early as the Telluride Film Festival starting August 29 - September 1, 2014. That would be pretty exciting if there was another U.S. premiere starting right around the corner.

Oh, additionally, Kuana Torres Kahele was also interviewed on a Hawaiian news channel and the interview was pretty cool - check it out below. I thought it was funny when Kuana mentioned to bring a tissue for the first two-to-three minutes of the short, "because you're going to need it"! 

Oh, and another mention of a screening came up in the text for the news report as well and mentioned...

The film will likely be shown at the fall edition of the Hawaii International Film Festival, scheduled for Oct. 30-Nov. 9 on Oahu.

So, there's another screening in the U.S. we can count on.

Probably not considered a "still" but I found this on Flickr! It's a group of color guides for the various short films. Note Lava is on the lowest panel. I didn't take it, but thought it gave an interesting glimpse into the story :] Possible spoilers.

Very Interesting! Great Find! I´m a sucker for stills.

That's great - yeah, it does show a few "spoiler-y" things like you mentioned, but very little since it's further away. That's a great photo overall - I love when they show progressions of concept art like that!

So I watched the preview clip. And once our volanco protagonist appeared, I was thinking, OH GOD! It's creepy, it's a volcano with a smile... but sooooo cute!  Oh Gawd! it sings too! That's freaky! But the song is soooo soothing. It's so adorable!
