Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment has confirmed that Disney Pixar's "Cars" Blu-ray will launch alongside the release of "Ratatouille" (DVD and Blu-ray) and "The Pixar Short Film Collection" on November 6th of this year.
In case you have been living under a rock Cars is about a hot-shot race-car named Lightning McQueen who gets stuck in the small town of Radiator Springs, where he learns a great lesson about friends and family.
Ratatouille on the other hand is a cute "tail" about a rat who dreams of being the greatest chef in Paris. He teams up with a struggling kitchen boy and by working together they take a failing restaurant and return it to its old glory.
