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.
