Disney Premieres Exclusive Shorts on Movies Anywhere22 May, 2014 By: Chris Tribbey
Disney is using its Apple-backed Disney Movies Anywhere platform for mobile and online content to premiere the first installment of the “Cars”-themed “Tales From Radiator Springs” series.
The episode — “Radiator Springs 500½” — features actor Owen Wilson as Lightning McQueen and is directed by Rob Gibbs (“Mater's Tall Tales”). It has McQueen in an off-road race against Baja pro-racing cars.
Disney launched its Disney Movies Anywhere service in February, offering apps for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, with access to the cloud-based service also available via Apple TV.
