    JOHN LASSETER CO-DIRECTS CARS 2 WITH BRAD LEWIS

    Toy Story 3 is still posing up good numbers around the world and most probably it will be one of the biggest animation on the box office figure. Pixar has already look up for next year when they have aimed to bring the audience to yet another sequel - Cars 2. Disney's Pixar announced that John Lasseter will co-direct Cars 2 along side Brad Lewis. The announcement was made recently at Disney's Holiday Showcase, which also elaborated some of the key details regarding the sequel that ease the weariness among those who have been following the production.

    Cars 2, is of course, the sequel to the 2006's animation which features the voice casting of Owen Wilson and the late Paul Newman. Although Cars received the lowest rating ever for Pixar (with 75% on Rotten Tomatoes), it is still a movie that was part of the eleven continuous positive reviews streak for Pixar. 4 years have gone and the new sequel is about to come in, but not without some glitches. Speculation behind the uncertainty around the directorial responsibilities and the sudden move that saw Cars 2 bumped from 2012 to 2011 added in some chaotic. However, Pixar reassures the fans that these were not serious threatsand the second chapter of Lightning McQueen's adventure will continue to charm.
    Here is the official synopsis from Disney for Cars 2:
    All the world’s a racetrack as racing superstar Lightning McQueen zooms back into action, with his best friend Mater in tow, to take on the globe’s fastest and finest in this thrilling high-octane new installment of the “Cars” saga. Mater and McQueen will need their passports as they find themselves in a new world of intrigue, thrills and fast-paced comedic escapades around the globe.


    Lasseter is no stranger to the Pixar's automobile animation. He directed the first Cars film and also held on similar jobs for the first two Toy Story films and A Bug's Life.
    I kept looking out thinking, ‘What would Mater do in this situation, you know?’ I could imagine him driving around on the wrong side of the road in the UK, going around in big, giant traveling circles in Paris, on the autobahn in Germany, dealing with the motor scooters in Italy, trying to figure out road signs in Japan.
    John Lasseter, co-director Cars 2.

    Although Cars was not really my favourite Pixar animation, I still love how they have made the animation in such a way could even goes as dashing as the other products by the studio. It's not hard to see why because this is Pixar, known for their perfectionist, fine emotional thorough down the whole movie. Cars 2 open in theaters on June 24, 2011.
