Pixar Post - T.J.
Well, we recently posted about a new rumor of a potential Cars Toon titled RS 500.5, where the gang may race alongside dune buggies and other familiar faces. Although the name implies a lengthy race, will it be 500-and-a-half laps (that would be unique)? Who do you think it will star in the upcoming short? Let us know.

Awesome! This another thing I am unexpectedly looking forward to this year! And to think just several months ago I thought it was going to be a dull year.
We haven't seen a new Cars Toon for a while, so I'm happy to see a new one coming up. And like it was said in the post on the home page, Mattel announced it, so there is sure to be a die cast line of the short and the new characters! Horaaaay! And the thought of some dune buggy characters? Totally hooked! I think that this might actually turn into a series of shorts all showing the parts of the race, because 500.5 laps crammed into six minutes sounds pretty difficult to me. But, Pixar has pulled of some pretty difficult things in the past!
I think it would be really cool if some Mater competes in the race and gets all suited up, kinda like the way he does in Tokyo Mater.

It had been announced at D23 Expo last Fall that two Cars Toons were to be released in 2014; one titled "To Protect and Serve" and the other... "Radiator Springs 500 1/2". "RS 500.5" is likely an abbreviation of the latter... So this has been officially confirmed, and is likely to be true!

I'm very interested by these new details; it's intriguing... I'm thinking in the same way as mac95; a big race with new characters suggests a big scope for a Cars Toons, which usually last only 6 minutes... And it will have its own line ? Could this one be longer than usual ?

Wow - thank you Antoine, for reminding us of the announcement at the 2013 D23 Expo. This must have completely slipped our minds since we even chatted about it in our Panel Breakdown post from the Expo. I have updated the original post and mentioned that we were bone-heads! [Laughing_zpsee77b0c4]

Also, I'd really love to see this one be longer than usual for sure. I am not sure how they could really introduce us to new characters like, Sandy Dunes or Baja Bug if they weren't going to extend it. But then again maybe not, this is Pixar we're talking about here and they have been known to pull off some amazing story elements in a short time before (think about the opening sequence of Up).

I really want these toys too...if they do end up making them (as I discussed in the amended post), I'd love for them to have rubber tires and really sell the off road elements of a dune buggy-style car. I can already see the cool box art as well with the desert background and a few scattered cactus plants!

Thanks again for the reminder - we have the best readers and I'm glad they can help keep us in line! [Big-Grin_zps23ec4c40]

I was doing schoolwork, and I "accidentally" got on Facebook. I have liked the official "Disney Pixar" page on there, and I found this:


It's confirmed!

Rachel, you're a genius! I have created a new Radiator Springs 500 ½ post regarding all the new plot and background details (and gave you a nod) to highlight these great new details. It's great that they included some screenshots as well so we can catch a glimpse of Lightning and the dune buggy / Baja vehicles as well!

Additionally (I've updated the post as well), but we now know the official synopsis for the short as well...

Quote: 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.
