Disney Pixar’s high octane summer hit should be on your “must-have” Christmas list this holiday season. The film features an all-star vocal cast including Owen Wilson who reprises his role as hotshot racecar Lightning McQueen.  Larry the Cable Guy provides the voice of Mater (proprietor of Tow Mater Towing and Salvage), Lightning McQueen’s best friend and the heart and soul of Radiator Springs. Bonnie Hunt is back as Sally, the baby-blue Porsche 911 Carrera whose motor races for Lightning.  Acclaimed actor Michael Caine makes his Pixar debut as Finn McMissile, a top British spy who mistakes Mater for an undercover American agent with a genius disguise.  Emily Mortimer brings charm, cleverness and cachet as Holley Shiftwell, a rookie field spy who knows every trick in the manual. Versatile actor John Turturro gives a free-wheeling performance as Francesco Bernoulli, the world-renowned Italian racing champ who is Lightning’s chief rival. Tony Shalhoub, Joe Mantegna, Peter Jacobson, Jason Isaacs, Eddie Izzard, Paul Dooley, Cheech Marin, John Ratzenberger, Franco Nero and Vanessa Redgrave also lend their vocal talents. NASCAR Racer Jeff Gordon and real-life Formula 1 racing champ Lewis Hamilton have cameos in the film.

With a huge thanks to Disney/Dreamworks, I had the pleasure of seeing this movie TWICE in June during my #DisneyDreamWorksEvent blogger trip. :)  And the first thing that comes to mind is something that John Lasseter said during our interview,

My wife told me [about making Cars 2], ‘Don’t make it for the first time you see it, make it for the hundredth time you have to suffer through it!’

And they did exactly that!  The second time watching this action packed spy movie was just as entertaining, if not more. Why?  Because you notice small subtleties and hidden “easter eggs” that you may not have caught the first time around.

I was impressed by the level of attention to detail in each international city they visited.  The scenery was not only beautiful, but extremely rich and realistic – it really did feel like you were actually there!  But of course, in true Pixar fashion, everything was “Car-i-fied”.  Check to see if you can catch these while you’re watching the movie!

Celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Pixar Animation Studios, Cars 2 invites fans of all ages to join the adventure with the #1 Animated Film of the Year. Exclusives include “Air Mater”, an all-new animated short, featuring the fan favorite Mater as he shares his stories from the skies over Radiator Springs. Other bonus features include an interactive “World Tour” map, it takes viewers through nine different locations on a behind-the-scenes journey with Pixar artists and filmmakers, commentary by Director John Lasseter, and much more!! And “Hawaiian Vacation”, the animated short starring the “Toy Story” characters.

Cars 2 is directed by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios and  produced by visual effects industry veteran Denise Ream (associate producer, “Up”; visual effects executive producer, “Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith”).  Oscar®-winning composer Michael Giacchino (“The Incredibles,” “Up”) provides the electrifying score with a surf-rock-meets-spy-thriller flavor and a variety of global accents, evoking a sense of thrills, mystery and emotion. The film’s diverse soundtrack features artists Brad Paisley, Robbie Williams, Weezer, French singer Bénabar and Japanese girl band Perfume.
