“Agents on a Mission” Multi-city Tour to Celebrate Disney•Pixar’s “Cars” on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Blu-ray ™ 3D, Movie Download and DVD

Today, October 29, 2011, the Brookfield Zoo had  a special treat at Boo at the Zoo.  The cars of Cars 2 were on the scene including Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater and Finn McMissile.  Children lined up from the moment the zoo opened to get gift bags with tons of goodies and a chance to get their photo taken with Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater and Finn McMissile. 

Presented by State Farm, the ―Agents on a Mission‖ tour hits the road with Disney•Pixar‘s ―Cars 2‖ this Fall when four-time Piston Cup champion Lightning McQueen and best friend Mater join master British spy Finn McMissile on a multi-city tour across North America. The star cars race off the big screen and into a host of cities—life-size remote-controlled models will light up and rev for fans in Sacramento, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, Denver, Chicago, Houston, among others. ―The ‗Agents on a Mission‘ tour lets fans get face to face with ‗Cars‘ favorites Lightning McQueen and Mater, plus the very cool, very savvy spy Finn McMissile, a new character on ‗Cars 2‘ roster,‖ says MT Carney, president of marketing for The Walt Disney Studios. ―This movie is filled with fun, action, heart and a lot of laughs—we want to get everyone geared up for ‗Cars 2.‘

Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in Disney•Pixar‘s ―Cars 2‖ when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix. But the road to the championship is filled with surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine). Directed by John Lasseter and produced by Denise Ream, the fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.

State Farm brings Disney•Pixar‘s ―Cars 2 adventure directly to fans with the ―Agents on a Mission‖ tour, showcasing cars modeled after their big-screen likenesses.
