Stream Pixar’s animated short Lava in its entirety for free

Until today the only way to see Pixar’s Lava short film was to catch it before a showing of Inside Out. But now Disney and Pixar are letting you stream the entire film for free from the Disney Movies Anywhere app.

To watch it you’ll need to sign-in to the app (or create a free account) and then head to the ‘Featured’ tab where you’ll see a big banner for Lava. Just tap the ‘Watch Video’ button and you’ll be off and running. Enjoy the film and good luck getting its song out of your head :D.

Inspired by the isolated beauty of tropical islands and the explosive allure of ocean volcanoes, LAVA is a musical love story that takes place over millions of years.

From Pixar Animation Studios, director James Ford Murphy and producer Andrea Warren, LAVA opens in theaters on June 19, 2015, in front of Inside Out.
