‘Cars 2′ Rolls Out Stunning Triptych (Hi-Res)

From Tokyo to London to Paris to Porto Corsa, this new triptych from Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2 is a literal feast to the eyes. While Lightning McQueen leads the pack in Tokyo, Finn McMissile is taking his fight to the streets of London much to the dismay of Miles Axlerod (and Professor Z, needless to say). Meanwhile, both Mater (who was recently revealed to acquire machine guns in the sequel) and Holley Shiftwell take to the air, although it appears that Holley’s flight is self-propelled.

‘Cars 2′ New Clip Revealed Through Covert Operation

Disney/Pixar's 'Cars 2'A new faux television commercial for used car dealership Cars N’ Deals reveals that there’s more to be seen in just the ad for the promised Sale-A-Bration. The ad itself is laden with Pixar and Cars 2 references, between the dealership being located in Emeryville, the A113 license plate, taking the Finn Road exit and some just plain absurd goings on in the background, but the real message is the one that comes up before the warning about going too far and missing it. For hidden inside the ad itself is a URL that will take you to a brand new action-packed clip from the Disney/Pixar film, introduced by none-other than Lasseter… John Lasseter.

Stones Pub ©Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with this hi-res concept art from its summer 2012 release, Brave (originally titled The Bear and the Bow).

The rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland serve as the backdrop for Brave, a new tale that joins the land’s ancient lore — stories of epic battles and mystical legends passed down for generations. Directed by Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman, and produced by Katherine Sarafian, Brave is the grand adventure of Merida (voice of Kelly Macdonald), a skilled archer who confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts to discover the true meaning of courage. The film also features the voices of Emma Thompson, Billy Connolly, Julie Walters, Kevin McKidd, Craig Ferguson and Robbie Coltrane. Brave, full of heart, memorable characters and Pixar’s signature humor, takes aim at theaters on June 22, 2012, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
