In true to form fashion, the Japanese film trailer for Disney’s latest film, Cars 2, from Pixar Animation Studios gets depressing. Here, a sub-plot involving a falling out between Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater is revealed when Mater inadvertently gives McQueen bad advice during a leg of the World Grand Prix and causes him the race. Fortunately, as the tired cliche would have it when best friends/lovers have a major falling out and never want to see each other again, it all works out in the end and the two end up closer than ever.
All the world’s a racetrack as racing superstar Lightning McQueen zooms back into action, with his best friend Mater in tow, to take on the globe’s fastest and finest in this thrilling high-octane new installment of the Cars saga. Mater and McQueen will need their passports as they find themselves in a new world of intrigue, thrills and fast-paced comedic escapades around the globe.
Cars 2 races into theaters on June 24, 2011.
