“From the beginning, we wanted to make Ultimate Lightning McQueen feel as real as he does in the film,” said Paul Berberian, CEO of Sphero. “In order to create a scaled down version of his big personality, we worked closely with the team at Pixar to ensure we were getting his nuances just right – such as leaning into turns and expressive facial and body movements.”

Fans can hit the gas with Ultimate Lightning McQueen by simply connecting to the car’s app (available on iOS and Android devices) and watch him respond to commands. With animated eyes, an animatronic mouth, and emotive suspension, users will train for their next big race by playing games and experiencing other interactive features. When not in training mode, users can relax while watching Disney•Pixar’s “Cars with Ultimate Lightning McQueen in “Watch With Me” mode, where he reacts to the movie in real-time.

Driving     Emotive suspension allows Ultimate Lightning McQueen to move like a champion
Drifting     Drift and do donuts Ultimate Lightning McQueen-style with authentic movement
Reactive Touch     Master Ultimate Lightning McQueen’s latest moves with a simple tap

DISNEY•PIXAR’S “CARS 3” Fuels TWO ALL NEW Soundtracks for the Film!

DISNEY•PIXAR'S "CARS 3" Fuels TWO ALL NEW Soundtracks for the Film!

DISNEY•PIXAR’S “CARS 3” Fuels TWO ALL NEW Soundtracks for the Film!

As Lightning McQueen heads to the big screen alongside his new tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez, Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” fuels two soundtrack releases—both available from Walt Disney Records on June 16 as the film opens in theaters nationwide. The Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, features eight tracks—including original songs by Dan Auerbach and ZZ Ward, four covers by various artists, and two instrumental tracks from Brad Paisley. The Cars 3 Original Score Composed and Conducted by Randy Newman reunites the “Cars” franchise with the Oscar®-winning composer. Both soundtracks are available for pre-order tomorrow, May 19, 2017.

“Lightning McQueen is on the journey of a lifetime—traveling cross-country, revisiting the past and looking into his own heart and soul to answer some big questions,” said “Cars 3” director Brian Fee. “Just like the music in the first two ‘Cars’ movies, the songs and score in this film really help support the story we are telling.”

CARS MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK
The Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack features “Run That Race,” an original song written and performed by nine-time Grammy® winner Dan Auerbach that can be heard as the movie opens. “The song is about never giving up and always trying your best,” said Auerbach, who met with filmmakers prior to penning the song. “They showed me the storyboards and ran through the plot. I was able to read some of the dialogue and from there I had enough to piece together a story in my mind for the song.”

Auerbach will release Waiting on a Song, his second solo album, on June 2 via his new label, Easy Eye Sound.  

The soundtrack also features “Ride,” an original end-credit song performed by Hollywood Records artist ZZ Ward, featuring musician Gary Clark Jr. Written by Ward, Evan Bogart and Dave Bassett, the song was released by Walt Disney Records as a digital single on April 14. It was performed live by Ward April 17 on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” Ward’s sophomore album, The Storm, will be released June 30.

The soundtrack also features four cover songs, including two bonus tracks.*

  • “Kings Highway,” originally released in 1991 by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, makes a comeback courtesy of 23-year-old British singer-songwriter James Bay.
  • Bruce Springsteen’s 1984 hit “Glory Days” gets a modern-day makeover by Grammy®-nominated performer Andra Day, who voices Sweet Tea in the film—a performer in the Cotter Pin with a hairstyle reminiscent of Day’s signature look.  
  • *The Beatles’ classic 1965 song “Drive My Car” is back on the road, compliments of Hollywood Records artist Jorge Blanco.
  • *”Freeway of Love,” made famous in 1985 by Aretha Franklin, is performed for the soundtrack by actress Lea DeLaria, who also provides the voice of Miss Fritter, a school bus-turned-demolition-derby-queen in “Cars 3.”

Three-time Grammy®-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer Brad Paisley, who has 24 No. 1 singles under his belt, was called on to create two instrumental tracks that are featured on the Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. “Truckaroo” and “Thunder Hollow Breakdown” accompany the film’s action-packed Crazy 8 demolition derby sequence that puts Lightning and Cruz in the midst of total chaos. “Brad Paisley was part of both ‘Cars’ and ‘Cars 2,'” said Tom MacDougall, executive vice president of music at Disney. “We knew he could have some fun with a demolition derby, and he just killed it. His down-home country tracks really add to the scene’s action and humor.”

From Walt Disney Records, the Cars 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is available June 16 and can be pre-ordered digitally HERE and via Amazon HERE.

CARS 3 ORIGINAL SCORE SOUNDTRACK
Newman, who was behind the Oscar®-winning music in Disney·Pixar’s “Toy Story 3” and “Monsters, Inc.,” composed the score for the first “Cars” movie and penned the Oscar®-nominated song “Our Town.” For “Cars 3,” Newman created a score that reflects the heart and high-octane action of the film—21 tracks are included on the soundtrack. “Randy has a real connection to the ‘Cars’ world,” says MacDougall. “His ability to capture the feeling of this film, its characters, locations and the Americana theme throughout is extraordinary—the music is so naturally fluid and inspired. It really feels like Randy is coming home with this score.”

Newman used a 110-piece orchestra to record the score. The Cars 3 Original Score Composed and Conducted by Randy Newman is available June 16 from Walt Disney Records and can be pre-ordered HERE.

Autotrader Announces Collaboration with Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3”

Disney*Pixar's "Cars 3"

Disney*Pixar’s “Cars 3”

Autotrader, the most visited third-party car shopping site[1], launched a television advertising campaign in collaboration with the highly anticipated film from Disney•Pixar’s, “Cars 3,” which cruises into theaters nationwide in 3D on June 16, 2017.

In the spirit of the film and centered around Autotrader’s personalized search functionality, the 30-second Autotrader television spot features the well-known cast of characters from Disney•Pixar’s”Cars 3″ showcasing their distinctive personalities. Autotrader rallies viewers to find the car that best fits their lifestyle. The spot concludes with the tagline – “Every car has a personality. Find the one that fits yours at Autotrader.”

“Collaborating with Disney•Pixar’s ‘Cars 3’ was a natural fit for Autotrader for more than the obvious reason of the spotlight our iconic brands share within the automotive space,” says Jessica Stafford, vice president of marketing, Autotrader. “Much like the Cars franchise, Autotrader shares a personal connection with people of all ages and at all life stages, and we feel this is reflected in the playful content we developed with the Disney and Pixar teams to further drive excitement for our brand and the upcoming premiere of ‘Cars 3’.” 

As the industry’s most influential listing site[2], and with 4.5 million average daily vehicle listings[3], Autotrader is making it easier than ever for consumers to find the right car and the right deal. Whether shopping for a lightning-fast sports car or a reliable truck with a tow package, Autotrader is there to help consumers research and locate their next vehicle. Plus, with the brand’s easy and convenient Save Car tool, Autotrader keeps an eye on a car that a shopper has saved and will send email or text alerts with important details like if the price has dropped, if there are new incentives offered like cash back rebates, 0% financing and more, providing immediate notification if the deal has gotten even better.

The Autotrader “Cars 3” 30-second television spot will make its television debut during the 2017 NBA Playoffs on TNT, with subsequent national television advertising appearing across a number of sports and entertainment programs targeting key demographic groups, such as Millennials, Hispanics and families. In addition, the campaign will be supported through digital media and audio channels, including Hulu and ESPN Deportes Radio, as well as on the Autotrader.com homepage and the brand’s social channels.
