PHOTOS: New Inside Look at Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

After two years in the works, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is set to open on March 31. We now have some rendered 3D photos that give us an idea of what the inside of the theater in Disney’s Hollywood Studios will look like.

A 200 foot wide screen will surround the audience, completely immersing them in the experience. Imagineers used previsualization software to make sure each seat in the audience gets the same spectacular experience.

Lightning McQueen will be the star of the show where he can interact with guests. Imagineers worked alongside Pixar to keep the world of Cars in tact. His front and center platform should make for a fun and memorable show.

You can check out the Disney Parks video on their website found here. Be sure to keep checking back with us for more updates on Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy.
