Disney is launching Cars Neon, a new Cars brand set to pull into stores with a toy line boasting partners including Mattel and Character Options.

Cars Neon is based on a new adventure for Lightning McQueen that sees his friends adapted with NeonTech light technology to take part in a night race through the streets of Tokyo, Japan.

A new line of products will be available at retail from February to support the launch of Cars Neon.

On the toy front, this includes an exclusive range of seven die-cast neon-finish cars and a track-set from Mattel, as well as radio controlled cars from Character Options.

“Cars Neon brings a whole new world of products and content to the familiar and successful Cars franchise, providing further storytelling and role-play possibilities for kids and future generations who love Lightning McQueen and his friends,” said Simon Philips, executive vice president and general manager, consumer products, The Walt Disney Company EMEA.
