World champion racer Lightning McQueen is burning rubber towards shelves and digital outlets, with his latest Disney-Pixar adventure Cars 3 revvin’ on home on Digital HD & 4K Ultra HD on October 24, and on Blu-ray 4K Ultra HD and Blu-ray Nov. 7. This summer’s high-octane outing will be the first of the studio’s titles to be released in the next-gen 4K format, and comes fully loaded with bonus features (including an all-new mini-movie starring Miss Fritter).
Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist, Cars & Cars 2), Cars 3 sees Lightning (voiced by Owen Wilson) team up with a spirited trainer named Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) to take on a new generation of blazing-fast, top of the line racers — including conceited newcomer Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). The voice cast also features Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria as Miss Fritter.
The standard DVD release includes the Pixar theatrical short Lou, directed by Dave Mullins, and commentary.
