Tonight on Disney Channel, the stars of Cars are reuniting for an all-new short, Radiator Springs 500 1/2, airing at 7:55 PM EST. Based on the extreme off-road races that cross the Baja California region, the short will feature more of the thrills and laughs that Cars fans have come to expect from the high-octane franchise.
Take a look at the official synopsis:
A “leisurely drive” planned in honor of Radiator Springs’ town founder, Stanley, turns precarious as Baja pros descend on the town and challenge Lightning McQueen to an off-road race. Meanwhile, the townsfolk, lead by a Stanley-costumed Mater, enjoy the planned “leisurely drive” to retrace Stanley’s original frontier route. Thinking they’re on the same course, a wrong turn sends McQueen and the Baja pros on a treacherously wild bid for survival. The misunderstanding leaves the racing professionals in awe of the “legend” of Stanley: the Original Off-Road Racer.
Radiator Springs 500 1/2 will feature the voices of Owen Wilson (Lightning McQueen), Larry the Cable Guy (Mater), and more.
Here is a clip from the short:
