Disney moves up animated sequel's release
By Borys Kit

Pixar is pushing the pedal to the metal on its sequel "Cars 2."

The follow-up to John Lasseter's 2006 film "Cars" was originally set for release in summer 2012, but Lasseter, Pixar's chief creative officer said at a Disney presentation Wednesday, that the film has been moved up to a 2011 release.

Brad Lewis, who served as a producer on "Antz" and "Ratatouille," is directing the film, which Lasseter said takes its inspiration from cars from around the world that he saw while doing publicity tours on behalf of "Cars."

In the meantime, Pixar will keep the "Cars" engine humming with a series of animated shorts that it will dub "Cars Toons" -- the first is titled "Mater's Tall Tales," taking its title from the name of the character played by Larry the Cable Guy.

The "Cars Toons" will play on the Disney Channel and also might screen theatrically.

cars was good, didn't blow me away. I guess I'm not surprised that they are coming out with Cars 2, it seems like any original idea gets overplayed and eventually killed...here is to hoping they stop after one sequel!

One a great movie although ShopNBC kind of bore you to death on showing the same movie over and over to sell there HDTV sets prior years. I thought they just end the movie, why bring out a 2? Sometimes they need to do fresh material look what happen to Shrek 3 eek!

I thought the first one was kind of dumb too. I went to see it at the movies at 10pm at night thinking there wouldn't be any kids in the theatre. WRONG!!

The middle part was so drawn out, kids got bored and were running around the theatre yelling.

They shouldn't have assumed that their movie was good enought that they could make it so long and still keep the attention of kids (to whom it's supposed to be geared).

Didn't see the first one, but I heard it was good and it did really well at the box office if I remember right. Maybe I'll catch up on the first one on netflix or something when the sequel gets closer.

If you saw the first one, you kinda gotta wonder where will they go with it. A sequel of a race ? ? ?

I didn't really care for the last movie. Perhaps my least favorite Pixar movie.

I thought Cars was good fun. A sequel was inevitable allthough i am not sure where they can go with it now?

I'd have walked out and asked for your money back.

I can't believe the parents would let the kids run around yelling in a theatre.
Well, I can believe it, there's a lot of parents out there that don't care what their kids do in public.
