Cars 2?


I've heard this rumor floating around for a while and didn't believe it so I didn't feel the need to post about it. I still don't know if it's true. Most of my sources are on the Imagineering side and the animators I know tend to work for Disney, not Pixar... so I can't varify this.

But Al Lutz over at Miceage left a little editorial blurb that mentions Cars 2 will be Pixar's 2009 release. He also mentions a new cars short for 2008 which I had heard about and did believe. But he says his sources confirmed it, so take from that what you will. Some people were thinking that Andrew Stanton was going to direct "A Princess of Mars" and have it out by 2009... I knew that wasn't right. The script for APOM isn't even done yet and it takes about two years to animate one of Pixar's films. That was a big, red flag right there...

It does fill a hole in their schedule:

Ratatouille 2007.

Wall-E 2008.

? 2009.

Toy Story 2010.

So maybe Cars 2 will take that slot? If true, I wonder who Lasseter tapped to direct since he may be kinda busy the next few years...

Wow, that would be great news. But wasn't Toy Story 3 scheduled for release in 2009? Imdb gives that date ...

"3" was pushed back until 2010, which the site hasn't recorded yet. Anyawy, I wouldn't mind a Cars 2, as long as they can find a good enough storyline...

Why not a sequel to Monster's Inc.???

Cars 2 is not the best choice for a Pixar sequel. but it does make the most economical sense from a production stand point.

I want them to do a Incredibles sequel. Now that would be a great Pixar film to look forward to.

Hey, What About The Incredibles 2 for release in 2009?, Hmmm, I Think Y'all Better Make A Sequel to The Incredibles. Brad Bird there is gonna be a Incredibles 2 or Cars 2.

My kids and I were so hoping for a 2008 Cars 2. But I see now that isn't in the playbook. The marketing for Cars 1 was more than I have seen for anything since Toy Story 1. They are hungry for new characters and a Cars 2. Though new Cars 1 characters are coming out the still want more. Disney would be foolish to do something like the Incredibles (which I love but the kids ignored) over Cars.

Oh I can't wait for CARS 2 - my son is totally in love with the 1st, but watching it for the 20th times makes me wanna watch a new story :P

As for a good plot, it's not that hard. How about McQueen trying for European F1, introduce some European roadtrip that will be educational for the kids, and add an element of fun with a sexy french girl car (eg. Megane sport) that will make a love triangle!

Oh well, see, while waiting for Pixar I made up my own story!

Just by chance that someone over at Disney/Pixar would see this website, I wanted to add one more comment - I have two boys who LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Cars. I actually got to this website looking for a sequel DVD to purchase - I thought there MUST be something. I have seen people refer to a 'short', I guess that was what I was looking for - I knew that there had not been a major motion picture sequel, but hearing that they may be thinking about that is very exciting! My boys are young, so I am sure that they will still be VERY 'into' cars by 2010 or 2011, so I hope that PIxar makes it! But in the meantime, a 'short' would be nice too!

I'd enjoy seeing Cars 2, but also would LOVE to see Incredibles vs the First Family of Superheros. Yep, Fantastic Four!! What could they DO in Cars 2? Mcqueen wins piston cup, OR helps someone else win. Only 2 options.

Cars 2 is coming out, but it won't be until 2012. Pixar has a movie called "Up" which will be released in 2009. It kind of sucks that I have to wait that long. Cars is one of my favorite movies.

Beckers said...

Cars 2 is said to be coming out in 2011. Along with a Pirates 4. The storyline for Cars 2 will be that Lightning and Sally settle down in Radiator Springs while he teaches future piston cuppers. And then his kids dont believe he was a famous race car so he joins the world circuit for one last race. I can't wait! As long as they have Mater and he's Larry the Cable Guy again. My son LOVES cars!
