After taking moviegoers into the magical worlds of toys, bugs, monsters, fish, and superheroes, the masterful storytellers and technical wizards at Pixar Animation Studios and Academy Award®-winning director John Lasseter hit the road with this fast-paced comedy adventure set inside the unique world of cars.
In addition to Owen Wilson, Paul Newman and Bonnie Hunt, Cars includes an all-star vocal cast including, Larry The Cable Guy (as Mater, a wise-cracking, rusty but trusty tow truck), George Carlin (as Fillmore, the town's resident hippie van, Paul Dooley (as Sarge, the no-nonsense Army Jeep) and Cheech Marin (as Ramone, the low-riding, car-painting Impala). As well, the fast-action film favorite includes the voice of Jenifer Lewis (as Flo, the sassy, no-nonsense 50's big-fin show car), Tony Shalhoub (as Luigi, the excitable, tire-brokering Italian import), Michael Wallis (as Sheriff, the Mercury Police Cruiser), Michael Keaton (as Chick Hicks, Lightning McQueen's nemesis), Richard Petty (as The King, the classiest champ on the race-car circuit) and John Ratzenberger (as Mack, the big-hearted Super-liner who ferries McQueen across the country).
Ratzenberger is the only actor to have appeared in all of Pixar's feature films. A fantastic soundtrack supercharges Cars, including tracks from the top artists in music today. Among these are director John Lasseter's longtime collaborator and Academy Award® winner Randy Newman (Best Song "If I Didn't Have You" from MONSTERS, INC. 2002), Sheryl Crow, Rascal Flatts, Brad Paisley, James Taylor, John Mayer, and more. The songs range from originals such as the heartfelt "Our Town" (written by Randy Newman and performed by James Taylor) to rousing renditions of the famous tune "Route 66." The Disney*Pixar's Cars Original Motion Picture Soundtrack debuted in June 2006 at #8, making it the first Pixar soundtrack to enter the Billboard Top 10 and to ship gold. The driving force behind Cars is John Lasseter, who returns to directing for the first time since TOY STORY 2 in 1999. In addition to guiding Cars through the production process, Lasseter has executive produced and overseen all of Pixar's creative endeavors, including MONSTERS, INC., FINDING NEMO, and THE INCREDIBLES, produced at Pixar's state-of-the-art studio in Emeryville, California. Cars taps into Lasseter's personal love of cars, racing, and animation.
