I don’t know for you, but for us, despite being an animated movie, Cars ranks among our cult car movies. The quality of the animation, the depth of the details, the quirky ideas, it all comes together beautifully. Personally, I really liked the enormous amount of research behind it and how they manage to show so much about the car culture, and they did it in such a great manner that the movie is enjoyable for the hardcore car freak, as well as for a newbie or a kid.
And what about how perfectly the characters were embodied in their vehicle form? Matter the redneck, Sarge the army vet, Fillmore the hippy… but also Jay Leno, Governor Schwarzenegger and many more. So yes, you go it by now, we’re very excited about the sequel.
Some cues about the story
They’re back, and they’re going international.
On April 10th, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios chief creative officer John Lasseter unveiled the studio’s schedule for the four years to come. While we know that, like all the next Pixar flicks, Cars 2 will be offerd in 3D, not much has leaked about the its story, except that “they’re going international”. Are Lightning McQueen and Sally Carrera going on a honeymoon around the world? How do their kids look like? Maybe track versions of the Porsche, or toned-down NASCAR racers… (sorry, not enough sleep seems to equal poor ideas with me). More international characters should be fun, and they will definitely help the movie outside the States.
Damn! Four years to wait…
