I was so happy to hear that Disney Pixar was releasing a sequel to their hit movie, Cars. Cars is hands down Z.E.N.’s all time favorite movie, I kind of like it too!
I know he will also love Cars 2 as well and we are both excited and just can’t wait to see it. We usually wait for movies to come out on DVD, but I am seriously considering actually taking him to see this one at the theatre.
The one thing I’m not looking forward to is all the merchandising that will go along with the release. I’m already seeing quite a few Cars 2 toys on store shelves and there’s is a video game in the works. Nevertheless, although Z.E.N. has way too many cars in the house, I’m pretty sure, we’ll be adding a few more die cast cars to his collection.
Cars 2 Plot
In this 2nd installment of Cars, Lightning McQueen (played by Owen Wilson), along with his pit crew and new pit boss, Mater (played by Larry the Cable Guy), are in for an International adventure. They head overseas to compete in the World Grand Prix to see if Lightning McQueen can secure the title of the world’s fastest car. This race takes place in five different countries. The first race takes place in Tokyo. Then it’s off to Germany, Italy, Paris and London, where they race past some of the world’s most famous landmarks, including “Big Bentley”. Along the way, we are introduced to many new characters. There is also a sub plot where Mater somehow gets caught up in an international espionage ring. It sounds like it will be a lot of fun to watch..
