‘New ‘Cars 2,’ ‘Hawaiian Vacation’ Stills, ‘Racing Styles’ Featurette
As we turn the corner to reach the final lap before Cars 2 makes its theatrical debut in North America tomorrow, Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios have provided us with two new stills for Cars 2 which feature the classic Cars gang checking out the streets of Tokyo, as well as the Tokyo National Art Center where the pre-race party takes place.
We also have a new featurette titled ‘Racing Styles’ which takes a look at the various supporting characters and the different types of racing and, of course, F1 challenger Francesco Bernoulli. Co-directors John Lasseter and Brad Lewis are joined by Owen Wilson and racing celebrity Lewis Hamilton as they discuss the different elements you’ll see and the developing rivalry between McQueen and Bernoulli, as witnessed on the Mel Dorado show (with a Larry King-esque host) in some of much of the newly featured footage here.
As a sidebar, Pixar Animation Studios has advised that only theaters showing Cars 2 in digital projection will be showing the hotly anticipated teaser trailer for Brave, which we hear will not be available online.
