Cars may not have been Pixar’s highest grossing movie, but it was one of the biggest concerning merchandising. The sequel on the other hand, may have a harder time making money, partially due to its unoriginal story. International espionage, car chases, and explosions, this film seems to lack the originality that Pixar prides itself in and it is because of that unoriginality that my interest in this film is at an all time low.
Watch the trailer below and leave your thoughts.
Here is the official plot summary:
Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.
