Larry the Cable Guy voices the popular character Mater for this Disney Pixar sequel, in stores November 1st

Larry The Cable Guy stands as the proud voice of Mater, a shabby little tow truck that brings a lot of heart and soul into the Disney Pixar animated franchise sequel Cars 2, which is set to make its Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD debut this Tuesday, November 1st. We recently caught up with Larry to chat about the movie and life in Nebraska.

Here is our conversation.

Larry The Cable Guy: It's been such a long time since I last heard your voice!

It seems like yesterday. Are you in Los Angeles right now?

Larry The Cable Guy: No, I am in Lincoln, Nebraska.

Good. I was wondering what you were doing outside. It's cold and rainy here in L.A.

Larry The Cable Guy: I know. Believe it or not, »

It's a Wonderful Life: Collector's Edition Gift Set This is essentially the same Blu-ray that was released last year only this time around they include a collectible booklet and a cheap little novelty bell, but I love this movie so much I couldn't help but kick off this week with this new edition. However, if you want to buy it and save $7 you can buy the non-gift set edition [amazon asin="B001UHOWXI" text="right here"], you just won't get the bell or booklet.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind I first saw Confessions of a Dangerous Mind back in 2003 and really liked it. I bought the DVD that same year and haven't watched it a second time. I don't know why, but I just haven't had the urge to put this movie back in the player. Not sure why, but with this new Blu-ray edition »

Pixar Folks Tell Us What Inspires Them

31 October 2011 4:00 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Pixar's "Cars 2" hits DVD and Blu-ray on Nov. 1, and attentive Radiator Springs fans will notice a special bonus feature, "Air Mater." The new short in the "Mater's Tall Tales" direct-to-dvd franchise is the inaugural production from the creative team at Pixar Canada, the legendary animation studio's two-year-old outpost up north.

Unlike the expansive campus in Emeryville, California, the Vancouver-based Pixar studio is a boutique annex that will focus on projects involving the studio's most famous legacy characters. NextMovie was able to tour Pixar Canada and speak to various Pixar geniuses about what inspires them to continue making critically beloved blockbusters that all audiences -- kids, parents, child-free adults -- want to watch again and again.

If you don't get the new "Cars 2" DVD, you'll be able to see Pixar Canada's second short, "Small Fry," starring Buzz Lightyear, premiering before "The Muppets" on Nov. 23.

Cars 2 review

26 June 2011 11:23 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Can Pixar deliver again, or is Cars 2 the firm's first genuine disappointment? Ron has been finding out...

Cars 2 feels like an exercise in excess and an apology from Pixar to their Disney friends. “Dear Disney, sorry we made a half-silent movie about a robot, and we're very sorry we made a movie about an old man and a fat kid who fly in a house-balloon. I know you love toy sales, and those movies weren't exactly selling tons of dolls. So, to make it up for you, here's Cars 2. It's like Cars, but with even More toy potential!”

This time, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) has just won the Piston Cup again, and now he's ready to kick up his wheels, relax with girlfriend Sally (Bonnie Hunt) and spend his lazy days with his best pal Mater (Larry the Cable Guy).

Unfortunately, after a very-public calling-out from hotshot »

New 'Toy Story' Shorts to be Seen in Front of 'Cars 2' and 'The Muppets'

18 February 2011 12:26 PM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

I contacted Disney to see if I could get any additional details on the announced Toy Story shorts that will be playing in front of Cars 2 on June 24 and The Muppets on November 23, but they couldn't give me any other than to say these will be the only two Pixar shorts this year and that more info and images are expected to be made available in March, but even that wasn't a sure thing.

Nevertheless, it is interesting to know the Toy Story franchise will live on, much in the way the Cars franchise never died after the first film was released in 2006. After Cars, Pixar created a series of shorts surrounding Mater, the dim-witted tow truck voiced by Larry the Cable Guy, which started with Mater and the Ghostlight in 2006 and continued through 2010 with "Cars Toon: Mater's Tall Tales".

The difference here is Pixar is giving the Toy Story gang a theatrical treatment, »
