News: Disney Cars 2 Coming in 2012

Disney Cars 2 LogoDisney Cars 2 - Scheduled to be Released in 2012

I knew it! I knew it! Over the last several months I've been looking all around to find out if and when a new Cars movie would be released. I finally got the final word recently that there will indeed be a Disney Cars 2, and it's scheduled release is in 2012.

I was hoping that it would be sooner, but I'm sure that when the time arrives it will be a grand release indeed!!!

About the storyline - My understanding is that this will not actually be a follow-up of the first Disney Cars story, but instead will carry a whole different theme. Lightning and Mater will be traveling about the globe! Tow Mater from Cars

I can't wait to see Mater's reaction to European car society - since he's such a bumpkin I think he'll fit in like a square peg in a round hole - but that remains to be seen.

And, will Mater the "Cassanova" finally meet the love of his life?

Oh, oh, oh, I almost can't wait. I won't hold my breath for 4 years though - I guess I'll just have to be patient.

But - -why the delay on the release?

Well, first off Pixar animated movies - as I understand it - take much more time to create than a normal movie that is filmed. But also I believe that there is going to be a whole section of the Disneyland empire set up for the Cars, and it's scheduled to be complete at or around the same time of the movie release.

At any rate, it will be fun to see Disney Pixar Cars 2 "roll out". :)
