Pixar Studios has just pulled back the curtain on a new short film they’ve been working on called “The Radiator Springs 500 1/2.” Taking place in the Cars universe, the new short promises more of the comedy, action, and beautiful landscapes that franchise is known for.
Take a look at the official synopsis and first preview images from the film:
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, led 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.
The short will premiere later this spring on Disney Movies Anywhere.
