Watch: New Character Videos from Pixar's 'Cars 2' & More Photos
Is anyone warming up to Cars 2 yet? I actually thought the teaser trailer was pretty damn cool, but it'll take more to impress others. Disney has surprised us with a fun little set of promo photos featuring the Pit Crew from Pixar's Cars 2: Luigi, Guido, Fillmore, Sarge & Mack. On Empire you can find a set of photos of each one, it's the same group we know from the first movie. And in addition to that, Cinema Blend found two cute vignettes introducing two characters by rotating them on a turntable. One for Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) and for a new character, secret agent Finn McMissile (voiced by Michael Caine). Enjoy!
Watch the turntable video for Cars 2's Lightning McQueen:
Watch the turntable video for Cars 2's Finn McMissile:
Cars 2 sees Lightning and Mater traveling around the world for the Race of Champions that includes other disciplines like Formula One. Mater ends up in a 'Hitchcockian' case of mistaken identity, saves the life of a British secret agent named Finn McMissile and becomes embroiled in a spy thriller, but no one believes him.
Cars 2 is being directed by former Pixar producer Brad Lewis, who is making his directorial debut following producing work on Ratatouille. We've also heard that John Lasseter has returned to Pixar to help co-direct, but Disney is quick to deny that. No screenplay credits are listed yet for Cars 2. Disney will be bringing Cars 2 to theaters everywhere in Disney Digital 3D starting on June 24th, 2011 next summer. Look good so far?
