Disney has released another trailer for Cars 2 and it’s a lot better than yesterday’s as it focuses on Michael Caine’s character who is a British spy named Finn McMissile. While I’m not the biggest fan of the first Cars, I understand why Pixar and Disney have made the sequel: money. From what I understand, the first Cars has generated huge money for the studios as it’s the most successful Pixar movie in terms of merchandising. When you generate that kind of cash, you make a sequel. The fact is, while a lot of us might not be on board with the need for a Cars 2, having a lot of extra money in the bank might lead Pixar to take a chance on a more risky film down the road. What I’m saying is, don’t be too hard on them.
Hit the jump to check out the new trailer and some cool retro posters. Cars 2 gets released June 24 and it features the voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, Michael Caine, Tony Shalhoub, Emily Mortimer and more.
Here’s the extended trailer followed by the one that was released yesterday. They really are a lot different.
