Storyline

At night, all around town, Mater the disheveled tow truck is causing havoc, playing tricks, disturbing the peace, and scaring other motor vehicles. At Flo's V-8 café, the local cop car warns Mater about the ghostlight, a legendary orb of blue that haunts these parts. The cop car tells the story and warns one and all that the ghostlight hates the sound of clanking metal. All the cars rush home, leaving only Mater, whistling past the graveyard, alone at his junkyard. Then, a blue light appears; can Mater save himself or is there more to the story?

Ghostlight
21 August 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

This DVD extra was directed by John Lasseter. Mater loves to go around Radiator Springs and pull stunts on Lightning McQueen and try to frighten him when it is least expected.

The Cars turn the table on Mater by telling him the tale of the Ghostlight, an orb that comes out of the dark which rattles Mater. Later on in the night Mater lets his imagination get the better off him as he fears the Ghostlight is right behind him.

For a short the animation is very good, you can see on the screen the care Pixar has taken in how they draw the characters and lit them. Just check out the reflections on the bonnets.
