Cars Land concept art

Disney has launched a new TV trailer for Cars Land, the major expansion to Disney California Adventure that will open to the public on June 15, 2012.

The trailer, embedded below, features popular character Mater from Pixar's Cars movies. He "accidentally" reveals footage of a number of Cars Land elements, including the Radiator Springs Racers ride, several shops and restaurants, and the central recreation of Route 66.

"Soft openings" of Cars Land are likely to take place at Disney California Adventure in advance of its official opening date. The updated Buena Vista Street entrance area of the park is also due to debut on the same day.

Anchored by $200 million E-Ticket attraction Radiator Springs Racers, Cars Land marks the final phase of a $1.1 billion series of upgrades to Disney California Adventure. The expansion will be home to two other rides, along with a number of dining outlets and retail stores.

You can find full details of the Pixar-inspired expansion to Disney California Adventure in our in-depth Cars Land preview.
