Mad about CARS 2 – from director to LEGOs
CARS was the first movie that really hit home for my son, now 8 years old, and I still remember too well how Life is a Highway, I wanna Ride it, All Night Long became an unofficial theme song for our family. Fittingly this was around the time we moved from Tennessee to Colorado and drove by the historic Route 66. Now CARS 2 movie is almost here, and Lightning McQueen will take it around the world this time, and I can’t wait to see it and inspire our family to travel around the world soon too. At least we will get to take the world tour with the movie! Watch the film clip with Disney Pixar director John Lasseter above and how he already thought during the promotion of CARS how cool it would be to do another movie where the characters of the movie would travel around the world. In CARS 2 race car Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is back with his buddy tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) and the rest of the gang from Radiator Springs. This time, they’re heading overseas for the first-ever World Grand Prix, where Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. The movie introduces hilarious new characters and red-hot racing around the world. CARS 2 will premiere on June 24th, 2011.
