Cars on DVD


Okay, you probably knew this already, but I've got to represent! The Cars DVD features the short "One Man Band" as well as a new short, "Mater and the Ghostlight", which I had the pleasure of working. And, of course, you'll find the teaser for Ratatouille, the next great film from director Brad Bird. This is a single-disc edition, and as far as I know there are no plans for a two-disc set (bummer, yes).

I'll be posting a highlight reel of my work on Cars soon, but in the meantime, I hope you enjoy the movie!

P.S. A few people (Hans, Noah) have noted that there is a two-disc set available exclusively through WalMart, the second disc being called "Geared Up: Bonus DVD Disc". From what I can tell this second disc is just music video stuff, and likely doesn't contain any original Pixar content. Personally I avoid shopping at WalMart anyway, but if you're a Rascal Flatts fan then maybe you'll enjoy the extra disc.

  1. I saw a commercial on this for a promo deal at WalMart-it's not an 'official' 2-dvd set, but hey it's worth checking out!

    There's a completely different two-disc set roaming the halls at Target. One of the guys here picked it up, and while I can't remember all the goodies on it, one of them was a look at the live versions of some of the cars that toured the country for a while. The feature list was longer than the music disc that Wal Mart was bundling with the film. Might be worth a look-see. (I'd have posted a link if I could find it on Target.com, but alas...)

    Looking forward to seeing your contributions Victor! I imagine a certain job title change for Mr. Lasseter was a major factor to this DVD only being a single disc offering.
    Can't wait for Ratatouille - it's the most "organic" looking 3-D movie I've seen. From what I can tell from the teaser a lot of those poses look 'Drawn'. I take it you're flexing your animator muscles on that one too??!!

  4. I have the Target Exclusive REV'D UP dvd disc! :o)
    here's the list of the included features....which is impossible to find online (i looked), but since it's sitting right here in front of me here they are....

    -Behind the Wheel (12:17) (making of Cars)
    -Life-Size McQueen & Sally (2:59)
    -Meet Pixar's Gear Heads (2:41)
    -Talkin' Cars (2:23)
    -Cars Alter Egos (3:34)
    -Dinner At The Big Texan (3:21)
    -Day In the Life of a Producer (3:11)
    -Hot Laps In Sonoma (3:19)
    -Worldwide Cars (3:36)

    All in all about 37mins long. I'm very happy I took my chances at Target not knowing what was on the disc. I don't like Wal Mart and I'm not looking for music videos...I just want as many behind the scenes and making of features as possible! :o)
    Target all the way on this dvd!!! I totally recommend it!
    Ok, that's all...hope this helps!

  5. Hey Victor,

    Yeah, I saw the two dvd set at walmart, but realized as you said, that the bonus disc was only Rascal Flats stuff (which I can live without.....no offense;))
    There is however another two-disc set at Target, that seems to have some more interesting "behind" material on it.

    I share your thoughts on Walmart though and should be imprinted with the big "Hypocrite" stamp whenever I enter the big blue machine.

    Looking forward to seeing your "Cars" reel.

    Take care,

    Hans

    Can't wait to see the reel! Really, can't wait... I'll be right here. Refreshing and reloading.

    Hey Victor, do you have any idea if there will be a special edition of Cars anytime in the future?

    The special features on the Monsters and Incredibles DVD are just priceless, it would be great to have similar material for Cars at some point.

    I especially loved the commentaries on the Incredibles DVD - how come you weren't in on the Animators commentary? :)

  9. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
