Disney has announced that the new Pixar original series, “Cars On The Road”, will premiere on Disney+ on Thursday, September 8, 2022.
This new Disney+ Original series will consist of 9 new episodes and follow Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) on a cross-country journey to the east of Radiator Springs, as the pair set out to meet up with Mater’s sister. Along the way, they will find themselves in many different scenarios and meet just as many different characters.
“The series is a romp across the country with Lightning McQueen and Mater,” says 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 with Pete Docter serving as an executive producer. The series’ episodes are directed by Steve Purcell (Eps 1, 2, 8), Bobby Podesta (Eps 5, 6, 9) and Brian Fee (Eps 3, 4, 7). Composer Jake Monaco created the score for all nine episodes.
