From the acclaimed creators of Toy Story, The Incredibles and Finding Nemo comes a high-octane adventure comedy that shows life is about the journey, not the finish line. Hot shot rookie race car Lightning McQueen is living life in the fast lane until he hits a detour on his way to the most important race of his life. Stranded in Radiator Springs, a forgotten town on the old Route 66, he meets Sally, Mater, Doc Hudson and a variety of quirky characters who help him discover that there's more to life than trophies and fame.
After taking moviegoers magically into the realm of toys, bugs, monsters, fish, and superheroes, the masterful storytellers and technical wizards at Pixar Animation Studios and Academy Award®-winning director John Lasseter, hit the road with this fast-paced comedy adventure set inside the world of cars. In addition to Owen Wilson and Paul Newman, CARS includes an all-star vocal cast including Bonnie Hunt (as Sally, a snazzy Porsche), Larry The Cable Guy (as Mater, a wise-cracking, rusty but trusty tow truck), George Carlin (as Fillmore, the town's resident hippie van, Paul Dooley (as Sarge, the no-nonsense Army Jeep) and Cheech Marin (as Ramone, the low-riding, car painting Impala). As well, the fast-action film favorite includes the voice of Jenifer Lewis (as Flo, the sassy, no-nonsense 50's big-fin show car), Tony Shalhoub (as Luigi, the excitable, tire-brokering Italian import), Michael Wallis (as Sheriff, the Mercury Police Cruiser), Michael Keaton (as Chick Hicks, Lightning McQueen's nemesis), Richard Petty (as The King, the classiest champ on the race-car circuit) and John Ratzenberger (as Mack, the big-hearted Super-liner who ferries McQueen across the country). Ratzenberger is the only actor to appear in all of Pixar's feature films.
Supercharging CARS is a fantastic soundtrack, including tracks from many of the top acts in music today. For the project, director John Lasseter enlisted his longtime collaborator and Academy Award® winner Randy Newman. Melding perfectly with Newman's score are performances from Sheryl Crow, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, James Taylor, John Mayer, and more. The songs range from originals such as the heartfelt "Our Town" to rousing renditions of the famous tune "Route 66." The Disney/Pixar Cars Original Motion Picture Soundtrack debuted at #8, making it the first Pixar soundtrack to enter the Billboard Top 10 and to ship gold.
