Disney LAVA

Disney Insider blog indicates that the short video introduces us to the star, Uku, who is seeking love amid the vast waters of the Pacific Ocean. The movie has been described as “a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.”

Disney Insider said James Murphy, the director of “Lava,” was inspired by his honeymoon in Hawaii a couple decades ago. After his time there, Murphy learned to play the ukulele, ultimately writing the song that drives the narrative of “Lava.”
