Just on the off chance that you’d overlooked the fact that a sequel to Cars is being released this summer, Disney and Pixar have released another full-length trailer (after a unleashing a legion of clips and TV spots) for Cars 2. The Disney/Pixar channel on YouTube calls this trailer #4, and who am I to argue? There is some new footage here, and the trailer is cut well, but at this point either you’re on board for Cars 2 or you’re not. If by some chance you’re new to the fact that the film exists, hit the break for the new trailer, or check it out if you can’t wait for the film to open on June 24. Read More »
Walt Disney Pictures has released a new movie trailer for Pixar’s Cars 2.
They are really playing up the film’s spy storyline, but nothing I’m seeing is making me interested in this sequel. The first film is in all accounts Pixar’s worst movie to date. It wasn’t even very profitable at the box office, but made billions in toy/merchandise sales. I was hoping that Lasseter may have found some heartfelt hook (I loved the Route 66 storyline in the first film, but it came in way too late) but the trailers thus far present a storyline which looks like a sad excuse to cash in at Toys r Us. And don’t get me wrong, I understand this is the movie BUSINESS, but I have come to expect more from Pixar. They are a studio-run entity which time and time again have produced films which are at the perfect intersection of entertainment and art.
Watch the trailer embedded after the ump. Please leave your thoughts in the comments below.

As I start this post, John Lasseter is on stage at D23, delivering a string of Toy Story 3 announcements. Thanks to the magic of Twitter, I’m able to keep tabs on the little bits and pieces from some 5,400 miles away. As I write, I’m very excited. I wonder what great news will come after the break? It depends on how far Lasseter goes in dropping news bombs. Already, though, I have some surprising casting news to report…
