- As master toy licensee for the upcoming Disney/PIXAR animated film, CARS, Mattel has created a diverse toy and games line inspired by this whimsical world of cars. Released in theaters June 9, 2006, CARS is the story of an aspiring champion racecar, Lightning McQueen, who is on the fast track to success, fame and everything he's ever hoped for until he takes an unexpected detour on dusty Route 66. His have-it-all-now attitude is thrown into a tailspin when a small-town community that time has forgotten, Radiator Springs, shows Lightning McQueen what he's been missing in his high-octane life.
Mattel has captured the essence of this colorful cast of characters with great detail and use of technology to bring the characters to life for hours of bumper bustin laughs! The line-up includes feature vehicles, die-cast, play and track sets, radio-control, plush, games and activities. Leading the way is the interactive toy Fast Talkin' Lightning McQueen which features animated eyes, vinyl animated mouth and more than 30 phrases recorded by the voice talent from t the movie.
