First looks! The newly revealed short film titled The Radiator Springs 500 1/2 and will kick off a new series of Pixar short films similar to Disney's short film collection of "Mater's Tall Tales". Here is what the clip's summary states:
The entire cast of voices from the films, including Owen Wilson, is back for this six-minute short, which will premiere later this spring exclusively on Disney Movies Anywhere. The gang is enjoying a Founders Day celebration to honor the late Stanley when a gang of Baja racers descend on the town and challenge Lightning to a race.
It has been directed by Rob Gibbs and Scott Morse. These directors have previously talked about the short film and what hopes they had for the new collection.
“We kind of played it up like a western. These off-road racers come to town, like gunslingers looking for the hottest gunslinger in Radiator Springs, Lightning McQueen. They challenge him to a race, like someone would challenge someone to a duel.”
This short film also follows reports from one of the voice actors that Pixar is indeed working on Cars 3. Could Cars 3 really be on the way? Could it be one of the unnamed mystery Pixar movies that are already marked on movie calendars?
