Hey man, earlier today, we introduced you to the newbie from New Rearendia, Rip Clutchgoneski. But now it’s time to get turn back the clock and focus our attention on the classics from Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2. This time it’s all about Fillmore (who’s being voiced in the sequel by Lloyd Sherr, filling in for the irreplaceable George Carlin), Luigi and Guido.

On a related note, man, Disney Consumer Products released this video clip today of John Lassetire Lasseter talking about Cars 2. This is actually a slightly modified version of the video played for Disney D23 members and invited media at the Cars 2 event held earlier this year during the New York International Toy Fair.
