Coming to a cinema near you on June 24th
The press release reads as follows:
Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater 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.
I expect Cars 2 to be as successful as the first movie if it follows with the themes of friendship despite initial appearances and doing the right thing even if you don’t win the race to do so (metaphorically of course).
Cars 2 is rated G (suitable for all audiences) and will be enjoyed by all family members is the following featurette is anything to go by.
