Disney+ has released a poster, image, and trailer for the new Disney and Pixar Original series, Cars on the Road, debuting on September 8. The new show follows Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and his best friend Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) as they head east from Radiator Springs on a cross-country road trip to meet up with Mater’s sister.
"The series is a romp across the country with Lightning McQueen and Mater," said director Steve Purcell. "Like any real road trip, every day is a new mini-adventure with unexpected twists and turns."
