Disney and Pixar have released the first official image for their upcoming CGI animated film Cars 2. The film was co-directed by Pixar giant John Lasseter (Cars) as well as Brad Lewis, who produced Ratatouille, and it stars the voices of Owen Wilson, Tony Shalhoub, John Ratzenberger, Cheech Marin, Larry The Cable Guy and Bonnie Hunt.
I wasn't a big fan of the first Cars film. It was good, but it wasn't great and definitely not the best film Pixar has made. Maybe the sequel will be better.
Here's the official Synopsis:
Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.
Cars 2 is set to come out on June 24th.
