"Cars 2" Plot Revealed! There's a Whole Lot of Mater! 


There are lots of Disney news this morning because John Lasseter was in London's Leicester Square giving details of upcoming Disney/Pixar productions. One of them is "Cars 2" set to open summer of 2011.

The sequel will focus on Larry the Cable Guy's Mater.

Empireonline is saying:

The story sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), his pit team and new pit boss Mater head around the world for the Race of Champions, to take place in five different countries and involve the champions of different disciplines like Formula One and rally driving. First up is a race in Tokyo, starting at Mount Fuji and heading downtown; then there's a German race through the Black Forest; then "Porto Corsa" in Italy, which is based partly on the Monte Carlo Grand Prix; then a 24-hour race around Paris (so somewhat like Le Mans then) and finally a thrilling climax in London, approaching Buckingham Palace (where the guards appear to be Land Rovers).


Furthermore, Mater will be involved in a case of mistaken identity but will end up saving the life of a British secret agent called Finn McMissile, an Aston Martin lookalike. Mater's plotline is a spy thriller that will conclude at the Buckingham Palace.

Empireonline further revealed that, "Along the way there are towtruck-abroad pictures to be taken at the Oktoberfest in Germany (where Mater wears "Materhosen") and harassing the aforementioned Palace Guards."

"Ratatouille" producer Brad Lewis is directing "Cars 2" and this will be his Pixar-directing debut. The main cast of the original are set to return, but no word yet on who's going to voice Finn McMissile. Can we suggest Daniel Craig? Or Roger Moore? Or Sean Connery? Or Timothy Dalton? Yeah, former Bonds!
