    Celebrity sighting... Lightning McQueen & Mater @ Disney/MGM Studios!

    A friend of mine who works at Disney/MGM Studios was backstage today and happened to catch o glimpse of two of the stars from the upcoming Disney release of a Pixar Animation Studios Film "Cars". Lightning McQueen (the red race car) & Mater (the tow-truck) were seen cruising around behind the scenes of the studios in preperation for the PR they will be doing leading upto the release of their new movie. My friend said the cars looked amazing. Very realistic. They attendants with them showing them around. With this sighting you should be expecting Lightning and Mater to turn up anyday now in the "Disney Stars & Motorcars Parade". Im very excited and am glad my friend was able to confirm this information. Perhaps I will see if my friend could get a picture of the Cars in the next few days.

    I really enjoy Steve McQueen Movies and this is really cool how they made a character as sort of a tribute to him. Cool news about the characters.

    Here is the link to a site I found that showed the Cars characters as actual cars, and I was wondering if this is how they would look in the park.

    Yup that exactly what the Cars my friend saw look like.

    I can only assume they are AA since the Cars will be doing some sort of meet n greet. but well have to see about that.

    BTW, I looked up this "Road Trip" tour that the cars are on, but I can't seem to find specific details.

    I found a list of the cities that they will appear in, but not the actual locations:
