John Lasseter Directs "Tokyo Mater" Short to Debut with "Bolt" on Dec 12, 2008
Disney’s John Lasseter has returned to the director’s chair for “Tokyo Mater,” a new “Cars Toons” short film where Cars’ tow truck Mater travels to Tokyo to compete in a drift-style race. The new short will be screened before Bolt in theaters starting December 12, 2008; 3-D screenings will get a 3-D version of “Tokyo Mater,” making it the first Disney Digital 3-D short film. Three earlier “Cars Toons” have aired on the Disney Channel, Toon Disney, and the ABC Family cable channels.
