In his first quarter 2010 presentation, Walt Disney Company President and CEO Bob Iger commented that Cars 2 will be pushed to December 2011 instead of the originally planned June 24, 2011 release.Â There could be any number of reasons for the move, including the already crowded summer movie release schedule that has Green Lantern being released a week prior and Transformers 3, which is still looking for an open summer slot.Â The other reason might be that Disney and Pixar need to retool the financially successful merchandising film to adhere more to the company tradition of releasing stellar movies. Of course the big move to do everything in 3D could also be the other reason to push the release date. Personally, new Disney films have always been a winter holiday event for me, so the move might be a great one.
In the Brad Lewis-directed 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. 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.
