Disney/Pixar have released the first official photo from their highly anticipated sequel, Cars 2. It’s a follow up to the 2006 computer animated feature, which wasn’t as successful as Finding Nemo but still a solid hit. The new film will once again call on the voices of Owen Wilson and comedian Larry the Cable Guy to add life to the lead characters Lightning McQueen and his best bud Mater. Check out the full photo of both characters as well as an in depth plot summary below…
Star race car Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.
Cars 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on June 24, 2011.
