Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Disney have kicked off their new special “Disney Parks Presents a 25 Days of Christmas Holiday Party” on the DisneyNOW app and December 1st at 8 p.m. EST on Disney Channel.

During the half hour special, Sadie Stanley and Sean Giambrone take viewers behind the scenes of Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy, at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, where you will be able to step right into the world of Disney•Pixar’s “Cars.” This all-new, high-octane show opens in the park’s Sunset Showcase in spring 2019 as part of the overall transformation of Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

Taking on the role of rookie racer, you’ll cruise into the theater and find yourself face-to-face with Lightning McQueen, appearing live on stage. McQueen and the entire audience are enveloped by a giant, wraparound screen that is nearly two stories tall and stretches more than 200 feet from end to end, pulling everyone into the action!

The racing legend is excited to showcase what he’s learned over the years. Of course, as Lightning McQueen has discovered throughout his career, things don’t always go according to plan, and he has to think fast to get back on course. Friends like Tow Mater, Cruz Ramirez and Lightning’s pals from Radiator Springs chime in with their support, as Lightning gears up for the challenge.

Disney Parks Live Entertainment is working closely with the creative team at Pixar Animation Studios to bring this new “Cars” story to life.
