Plot & Details

Inspired by the hit 2006 film Cars, the Disney Digital 3-D short film Tokyo Mater follows Lightning McQueen's rusted yet trusted pal Mater the tow truck (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) as he enters the high-stakes world of Japanese drift racing. A routine tow job has landed Mater in Tokyo, and now in order to prove his worth, the ramshackle truck will go wheel-to-wheel against a malevolent gang leader and his powerful band of ninjas. Now, in order to master the art of the drift and defeat his intimidating opponent, Mater must seek a little advice from his good friend "Dragon" Lightning McQueen while receiving a few much-needed modifications under the hood. Originally seen in theaters before Walt Disney Pictures' Bolt, Tokyo Mater was the fourth installment in Disney/Pixar's ongoing "Cars Toons" series.
