Lightning and Mater are back! Coming to Disney+ on Thursday, September 8th, Disney and Pixar will be premiering the new Cars spinoff Cars on the Road.
The spinoff of the well beloved Cars movies will continue the journey between McQueen and his best friend Mater as they head east from Radiator Springs on a cross-country road trip to meet up with Mater’s sister. “The series is a romp across the country with Lightning McQueen and Mater,” said director Steve Purcell. “Like any real road trip, every day is a new mini-adventure with unexpected twists and turns.”
Cars on the Road is produced by Marc Sondheimer. Steve Purcell, Bobby Podesta and Brian Fee each directed episodes, and Jake Monaco composed the score for all nine.
Disney+ Day will return on Thursday, September 8, 2022, leading into D23 Expo: The Ultimate Disney Fan Event taking place in Anaheim, CA. The streaming service will host special experience for fans and subscribers and will premiere new content from its marquee brand – Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars, and National Geographic.
