Watch: Cars 2 Theatrical Trailer

Disney/Pixar has premiered the first full-length theatrical trailer for Cars 2, the sequel to the 2006 animated feature that finds Lightning McQueen and Mater heading overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix only to become entangled in a web of international espionage. What’s more, the studio has released a series of retro-style travel posters showcasing some of the movie’s characters and locations.

Directed by John Lasseter (Cars) and co-directed by Brad Lewis (Ratatouille), the movie stars Owen Wilson, Tony Shalhoub, Michael Caine, Emily Mortimer, John Ratzenberger, Cheech Marin, Larry the Cable Guy and Bonnie Hun. Here’s the official description:

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 opens on June 24 in the United States and on July 22 in the United Kingdom.

    Are you fucking kidding me??

    We get a “Cars” sequel before we get an “The Incredibles” sequel. What’s wrong with those people.

    What is this “mevio” site constantly pops up when I visit your page? It’s incredibly aggravating, and happens without clicking any ads or links. It’s annoying to the degree that it’s not worth coming to this site anymore.

    Cars made 5 billions in merchandising, my 3 years old got everything with Flash Mcqueen on it… and I mean EVERYTHING!

    The first Cars sold a lot of toys and other merchandise, it pulled it roughly a billion dollars because of that. That’s why we get a sequel to Pixar’s worst movie instead of one of its best, merchandise.

    This sound more like an extended version of the “Mater’s tales” mini-movies than a true Pixar film… but then again, it’s Pixar, at the very list it’ll be good to look at. And may even have surprises in it (my least favorite Pixar movie is Ratatoille, and even that one had it’s moments.)
