Ever wonder how your favorite Cars 2 character would stack up in the real world? Thanks to Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios, we now have a pretty detailed list of statistics for most of the characters you’ll find in the film.
But while we’re on the topic of how the characters would compete, let’s first take a look at this brand new clip from the film which, like a couple of other previously released clips, takes place at the pre-World Grand Prix social gathering in Tokyo, Japan. In this clip, Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and trash-talking, self-loving rival Francesco Bernoulli (John Turturro) meet in person for the first time. Mater, who finds himself in awe of being in the presence of one of the world’s greatest drivers (Lightning is just his best friend after all), has no problem reminding Francesco how much he is loved — not just by Mater, but by Lightning’s best girl as well.
Not to be outdone, Disney/Pixar has also provided us with a brand new still pictured above which features Mama Topolino who will be voiced by the legendary actress, Sophia Loren in 21 countries. In the English versions of the film, Mama Topolino will be voiced by Vanessa Redgrave, but in other non-English versions including including Italy, China, Russia, Brazil, Spain, Mexico, France and Japan, she will be voiced by Sophia Loren who will recite Mama Topolino’s lines in Italian.
