Walt Disney to Expand “Cars” Property

It’s been five years since Walt Disney launched the first film in the Cars franchise, and since then, the CG animated movie about anthromorphic vehicles has become one of the studio’s most lucrative and popular franchises. Walt Disney has recently announced their plans to expand and support the Cars franchise by way of additional branded content and consumer-level merchandise. This involves new Cars animated shorts that are slated to appear as bonus content on DVDs as well as on the Disney Channel, Disney XD, and their other digital platforms. Some of the shorts are also planned to run during theater previews.

Disney Parks & Resorts will also open Cars Land in support of the franchise. The 12-acre attraction will feature at least 3 new immersive segments at Disney California Adventure.

Vice President of merchandise licensing Marianthi O’Dwyer has the following to say:

“Not only have we continued to benefit from the popularity of Disney’s core evergreen brands, but this year’s big entertainment property, Disney*Pixar Cars 2, has gone from strength to strength, becoming our largest toy line yet with over 300 new toys offering something for everyone and a year-round opportunity for retail,”
