Cars (R1) in November - Features confirmed
Buena Vista Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of Cars for 7th November 2006 priced at $29.99 SRP. Pixar's latest animated blockbuster imagines a world inhabited only by sentient cars. Owen Wilson provides the voice of the film's hero, an arrogant racing car who takes a wrong turn and ends up in a small town filled with old rust-buckets. The cast also includes Paul Newman, Bonnie Hunt, Cheech Marin and Michael Keaton.
The extras include an all new animated short “Mater and The Ghostlight,” starring Mater, the rusty but trusty tow truck. This exclusive bonus feature was produced by the creative and technical teams who developed CARS. The story is set in the town of Radiator Springs and tells the legend of the Ghostlight – a mysterious blue light that haunts the town and its residents. Also included for the first time on DVD is Pixar’s Academy Award- nominated “One Man Band” (Best Animated Short 2005) which played with the film in theatres. Rounding out the CARS DVD bonus features is the behind-the-scenes “Inspiration for Cars,” a journey with John Lasseter that explores how the story of CARS was born, as well as deleted scenes and a special sneak peek at the highly anticipated next Disney/Pixar feature Ratatouille.
Available in separate Widescreen and Full Screen editions the film is presented with THX certified English DD2.0 & DD5.1 EX Surround Sound audio tracks.
