If you can forgive the poor quality of the images, here’s your first look at new characters from the upcoming Disney/Pixar summer blockbuster, Cars 2. As the studio hasn’t officially released them yet, the images are not yet available for publication, but here you’ll see Niles Gearsley from his turntable video and part of the official publicity photo for Miles Axelrod. Of course we’ll post proper images and complete character descriptions as they become available.
Parker Brothers has been synonymous with classic board games beloved by families for generations. From Monopoly to Sorry! to Trouble to the (relative) new kid on the block, Trivial Pursuit, and more, no family game night is has been complete without at least one of them.
For Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2, however, at the 2011 New York International Toy Fair, parent company Hasbro is shifting into higher gear, offering expanded and improved gameplay on the classics, taking full advantage of the Pixar property’s theming. Unfortunately due to restrictions due to the sensitivity of details from the film not yet revealed, we are unable to share any photos at this time, but we will do our best to describe the enhanced gameplay involved. As it was, many of the graphics were covered as they pertained to unreleased details from the film.
Just a couple of days ahead of New York’s International Toy Fair, Mattel has previewed just some of its new products for 2011 centering on Disney’s hottest properties: Cars 2 from Disney/Pixar and the Disney Princess collection.
We are pleased to be able to report that we will be on-hand at the show and hope to bring you news on many more great Disney products from Mattel and Fisher-Price soon.
