DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS, the latest exciting new computer-animated feature film from the makers of "The Incredibles" and "Finding Nemo", is coming to Disney DVD. A fast-paced mix of comedy and adventure for the whole family, DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS is set to be the animated hit of the year and a must own on DVD!
DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS was inspired by a real-life road trip on the infamous Route 66, by none other than the founder and creative front man of Pixar Animation Studios, John Lasseter himself. This full-length feature film is guaranteed to take you on one of the most thrilling rides of your life. Filled with relentless action, anticipation, dedication, passion, heart-felt drama and amazing new technical feats, DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS will keep you on the edge of your seat!
DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS tells the story of self-assured 'Lightning McQueen', a bright red race car. McQueen, who is relatively new on the racing scene, embarks on a memorable adventure where he discovers that life is about the journey not the destination.
As a hotshot rookie, McQueen oozes confidence and believes that he can become number one and make it to the top of the racing circuit. However, after disappointingly finishing a preliminary event in a three-way dead heat with archrivals 'Chick Hicks' and 'The King Strip Weathers', McQueen has to travel to Los Angeles for the deciding race in the Piston Cup.
Along the way, McQueen gets lost when he falls off the back of 'Mack' his transporter truck. He then takes the wrong detour and ends up in the quaint and forgotten town of Radiator Springs. Forced to spend time in the small and redundant community on Route 66, McQueen gradually gets to know the town's quirky characters. McQueen goes on to form lifelong friendships with the eclectic bunch and they later become his team who helps him get back on the race track.
DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS features a hilarious ensemble cast of offbeat characters, especially those from Radiator Springs including 'Mater' the rusty, slow-witted, loyal tow truck. McQueen and Mater develop a strong friendship and over time Mater teaches McQueen that there are more important things than sponsorships, winning and fame.
Then there is 'Fillmore' the peace-loving, tie-dyed hippy, VW bus; 'Luigi' the Fiat 500 who runs the local tyre shop; 'Guido' the Italian forklift who is also Luigi's assistant and best friend; 'Sarge' the World War Two Army Jeep who begins each day with a rousing rendition of Reveille; 'Flo' the sassy no-nonsense show car; and 'Ramone' the Impala Low-Rider who owns and operates Ramone's House of Body Art.
To be honoured is 'Doc Hudson', the mysterious and modest 1951 Hudson Hornet, who runs the local mechanic workshop and has a very impressive history in the racing world. Doc, at first glance, appears to be grumpy and disinterested at the new brash race car. However, he soon lets down his guard and ends up sharing words of wisdom with McQueen, teaching him some valuable life lessons.
During his time in Radiator Springs, McQueen befriends Sally, the sultry, yet intelligent Porsche 911. The one time hot-shot lawyer ends up proving to McQueen that being number one is not always the most important thing. After swallowing his pride, McQueen goes on to apply these learnings to his life and makes it to the starting line of the highly anticipated Piston Cup.
With an all-star stellar cast lending their voices to the characters, including Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen, Bonnie Hunt as Sally, Larry the Cable Guy as Mater, Paul Newman as Doc Hudson and Michael Keaton as Chick Hicks; DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS is a sure-fire DVD hit that will have the whole family revved up!
DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS is loaded with great bonus features including John Lasseter inspiration piece, deleted scenes, audio commentary, DVD short, theatrical short and more.
Appealing to all - boys, girls, mums, dads and car enthusiasts alike, DISNEY-PIXAR'S CARS will take you on a high octane ride you definitely don't want to miss! Available nationally at all major retailers.
