Teaser Trailer and Concept Art for CARS 2

     October 20, 2010

It’s odd for me to not be excited about an upcoming Pixar movie, but that’s the case with Cars 2.  The original isn’t a bad movie, but it’s not anywhere close to the high bar Pixar sets with its work.  Also, sub-par Pixar is still better than most everything else.  It’s possible I’ll be won over between now and the film’s release date, but a newly-released teaser trailer doesn’t do much for me.  The teaser casts the sequel as an action-spy thriller with Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) and Mater (voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) as hapless agents of espionage.  While I’m still waiting to be wowed, I’m sure the kids who bought endless amounts of Cars merchandise will probably go nuts as they see their favorite characters return.

Hit the jump to check out the teaser trailer along with some new concept art and the synopsis.  Cars 2 opens in 3D on June 24, 2011.
