Disney Pixar Cars 2

Disney Pixar Cars 2

We’re excited about the new Cars2 movie coming from Disney – and we know you and your kids are too. June 24th sounds like it’s so far from today but I bet if you watch this video clip and follow along MMTVN and the folks on Twitter for Disney-Pixar, you’ll be in a theater near you watching before you know it!

Here’s a little bit more about Cars 2…

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.  Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine) and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell (voice of Emily Mortimer).  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.  The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.

Oh… check out who’s in it (listed below) Love the actors and I love the names of the characters! Another hit from Disney Pixar for kids of all ages!!
