With the release of 'Cars 2' only four months away I thought it prudent to take a look a the new feature looking to build upon the success of 'Cars' in 2006. It seems incredible to me that it took Disney Pixar this long to create an animation featuring talking cars because the characters were so loveable. I especially loved the rusty old hick van Mater who will be making a comeback.There is also a whole host of stars to look forward to including Owen Wilson, Michael Keaton, Emily Mortimer and surprising new edition, Michael Caine.
The film follows the friendship of star Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Mater (Larry The Cable Guy) as they head overseas to compete in the World Grand-Prix and determine the world's fastest car. The film also follows a side story with Mater who reportedly gets embroiled in international espionage! This sounds like comedy gold to me. Mater is torn between helping McQueen and a secret spy mission that will take him through Europe and to Japan. With a ton of new characters and a storyline that sounds far fetched but exciting, I doubt whether this will be another forgettable Disney sequel. So put the release date, 24th June 2011, in your diary and prepare for some laughs.
