Mater is the funny rusty tow truck in Disney/Pixar's Cars and opening June 24th, 2011, Cars 2. Mater can also be found in Car Toons: Mater's Tall Tales (which were played on the Disney channel), the short cartoon, Mater and the Ghostlight, Cars comic books, and he has also appeared in every Cars video game that has been created.

Mater hails from Radiator Springs, a small little town off of route 66 that was forgotten about then returned to promise with the help of Lightning McQueen. Mater's allies are his best friend Lightning McQueen, Sally Carrera, Sheriff, Guido, Luigi, Flo, Ramone, Doc Hudson, Sarge, Fillmore, and the rest of the town. In Cars 2 Mater even has a love interest.
Mater has a lot of difference paint jobs and costumes in the cars series which includes Car Toons. He usually is very rusty, with hints of blue paint and green paint on the door and letters which say 'Tow Mater: Radiator Springs,' he also has a missing headlight and a flashing yellow light on top of his tow truck.

Mater is voiced by Larry the Cable Guy and was created by John Lasseter. In Cars 2 Mater's role really steps up and he really does steal the show. 
You can find Mater at Disney's Hollywood Studios and also at Disney's California Adventure. He will soon be found in Cars Land at Disney's California Adventure which is scheduled to open in the Summer of 2012. Info that has been given so far looks amazing, it will be a great addition to Disney's California Adventure.

Moana is the main character in the Walt Disney animated hit film, 'Moana' which was just released on DVD last week. She can be found in the animated short 'Gone Fishing.' In video games she can be found in Moana: Island Life, Disney Emoji Blitz, Kingdom Hearts Unchained X, Disney Crossy Road, and Moana: Rhythm Run. In other merchandise she can be found in toys, Disney art, games, books, Funko pop figures, and clothing. I am sure she will be getting her own vinylmation figure in the near future as well.

She lives on the island of Motunui with her mother, father, and her recently deceased grandmother. She is the new Chief of her people. Her friends she can count on in times of need are Maui, Heihei, Mini Maui, Tui, Pua, Te Fiti, Sina, Tala, the people of her village, and the ocean. Her enemies include Tamatoa, Te Ka, the rest of the inhabitants of Lalotai (Realm of Monsters), and Kakamora.


Moana is a Polynesian teenage girl. She has brown eyes, black eyebrows, and long thick wavy black hair. Her outfit consists of reddish/pink floral tube top, a cream colored skirt, a reddish/pink sash around her waste, and a brown necklace with a blue gem that holds the heart of Te Fiti. She is very adventurous, brave, and she has an amazing heart!

She was designed by Nick Orsi, Bill Scwhab, Minkyu Lee, Randy Haycock, and Jin Kim. Her animators include Hyrum Osmand, Malcom Pierce, Allen Ostergar lV, Svetla Radivoeva, and Trent Correy. In the film she is voiced by Louise Bush when she was a toddler and Auli'i Cravalho in the rest of the film.


Moana can be found as a meet and greet character in Disney parks around the world. She can also be seen in two upcoming shows. First in 2017 she can be seen in Happily Ever After, which is replacing Wishes at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World on May 12, 2017. She can also be found across the see at Hong Kong Disneyland in 2018 in the upcoming show, Moana's Village Festival. With the popularity of 'Moana' I wouldn't be surprised to see more shows or even a attraction based on the film in the coming future. Finally if you haven't seen 'Moana' yet, go see it! Such a beautifully done film with a great story, and amazing artwork.


I want to make my weekly bios interactive for all of you, so each week I ask you all to email me at to let me know which character you want to see and want to know more about.
