First Look: First Official Photo for Pixar's Cars 2 Comes Flying In

Woohoo!! Disney has released the first official photo from Pixar's Cars 2 that features Lightning McQueen, Mater and their new friend Finn McMissile (we don't know who's voicing yet?) attempting to escape from a hot pursuit that includes a plane and a huge explosion in the background. Epic. We featured the first short teaser trailer for Cars 2 back in October, but it didn't show much besides lasers shooting all over the place. Apparently the first full trailer will hit tomorrow morning, so stick around for that. In the meantime, we've got this photo below and a new teaser poster on Yahoo as well, which we used for the image above. Enjoy!
It was revealed last year that Cars 2 will see Lightning McQueen, his pit team and pit boss Mater, heading around the world for the Race of Champions taking place in five different countries with champions from different disciplines like Formula One and rally driving. Apparently Mater gets involved in a 'Hitchcockian' case of mistaken identity, saves the life of a British secret agent called Finn McMissile (seen above on the far right side) and becomes embroiled in a huge spy thriller. Only no-one believes him. That too comes to a head at Buckingham Palace. Former Pixar producer Brad Lewis is making his directorial debut on Cars 2.

Pixar has a way of working that always make their work good and sucessful ! And if that movie was going to suck they would simply restarted the thing all over again until it would be at their best , just like toy story 2 ! Just have to give a chance 😛

Monsters Inc. 2 for me. Cars merchandise made billions. Go figure.

Your all talking crap. Cars has a great set of characters, which by the way, is what makes us love pixar movies in the first place. Also lets not forget that they are also disney movies that are primarily for kids!!! AND MY SON WATCHES CARS EVERY DAY!!! The problem is...you're the wrong people to make comments on these films. Go ask a bunch of kids! And just so you know...Wall-E is the worst pixar film! RANT OVER

@sleepykid...yeah, the one film that everyone considers Pixar's weakest link has the strongest and most successful toy lines:P It took a couple times for the first one to grow on me and I like the International aspect of this film. Looking past the ultra kid friendly characters the story is quite understated and impacting. Surprisingly I'm looking forward to this one more than the first!

Walle is in my top 10 films of all time...Scott, you're crazy because that film was beautiful. What didn't you like about it. I'm a sucker for visual story telling and abnormal love stories so it was right up my alley.
