Fans of Pixar’s Cars movie franchise know Larry the Cable Guy as the voice of Tow Mater, the tow truck with a unique perspective on life. Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, a brand new attraction coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios, will feature Mater along with other characters from the Cars movies.

Disney brought the actor to Disney’s Hollywood Studios to help build up excitement for the attraction and to reveal two Cars-themed 30th anniversary logos for the park.

The attraction itself is inside the Sunset Showcase Theatre near the Rock ‘n’ Roller Coaster. Expect to see a mix of ‘life-size’ Cars and screen based effects that take advantage of the space.

Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is set to open on March 31

  1. It’s unfortunate that Disney isn’t considering a whole Cars Land for the Studios. The whole Animation building/courtyard section of the park could be reimagined as a new Cars Land, providing some much-needed additional attractions for a park that is very short on “real” attractions. Radiator Springs Racers is such a great ride, and some kid-friendly attractions like the rides at DCA would be good there, too.

    This new Racing Academy sounds like the sort of thing that’ll last a couple of years and then quietly close after no one goes into it any longer. The Studios has a history of that kind of thing — remember the Who Wants to Be a Millionaire attraction? American Idol? I know they’re desperate to add attractions before Star Wars Land opens, but this one seems particularly underwhelming.
