Cars 2 released today on Disney 3D Blu-ray, Blu-Ray and DVD

Just in time for Christmas, Disney Pixar Cars 2, the follow up to the 2006 Golden Globe award winning movie Cars, hits the shelves today on Disney 3D Blu-ray, Blu-Ray and DVD. In this sequel, the four-wheeled friends meet a host of new characters and get involved in a fast-paced adventure that had all three Madhouse mini-testers glued to their seats for the entire duration of the DVD !

The blurb says : "Lightning McQueen the race car and his buddy Mater the tow truck take their friendship to exciting new places in Cars 2 when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world."

The film features an all-star vocal cast including Owen Wilson, who reprises his role as hotshot racecar Lightning McQueen. Larry the Cable Guy provides the voice of Mater (proprietor of Tow Mater Towing and Salvage), Lightning McQueen’s best friend and the heart and soul of Radiator Springs. In his Pixar debut, acclaimed actor Michael Caine is Finn McMissile, a top British spy who mistakes Mater for an undercover American agent with a genius disguise. Emily Mortimer is Holley Shiftwell, a rookie field spy who knows every trick in the manual. John Turturro gives a free-wheeling performance as Francesco Bernoulli, the world-renowned Italian racing champ and Lightning’s chief rival. Jason Isaacs, Eddie Izzard, and Vanessa Redgrave also lend their vocal talents and real-life Formula 1 racing champ Lewis Hamilton and NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon add a touch of authenticity with their cameos in the film.

The DVD includes some great bonus material, notably an exclusive all-new animated short "Air Matar," and the return of the Toy Story gang in the fun animated short that accompanied the film in cinemas; Toy Story Toons: Hawaiian Vacation. Additional bonus features include the fascinating commentary from award-winning director John Lasseter and a one-of-a-kind interactive "World Tour" map that takes viewers through nine different locations, including those featured in the film and more. A global thrill-ride, it allows viewers to go behind-the-scenes with the Pixar artists and filmmakers as they circle the globe finding inspiration for the most international of all Pixar films to date.

Cars 2, which is the first Pixar film to be released in spectacular Blu-ray 3D, also marks the 25thAnniversary of Pixar Animation Studios.
