Cars 2 Racing into Theaters June 24th {Giveaway}

If there is one movie my family and I are the MOST excited for, it’s Cars 2! Everyone in our family enjoyed the first Cars movie and we still watch it at least once a week. Brady is obsessed with anything to do with cars and trucks, so Mater and McQueen rank pretty high in his eyes. We have a lot of the die cast cars from the first movie and his favorite is Sally Carrera! He often has her in his hands while playing with the other characters. He has to make sure he knows just where she is at all times. 😉

About Cars 2 –
When star race car Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy)

More about the movie:

Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile (voice of Michael Caine) and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell (voice of Emily Mortimer). Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.

John Lasseter returns to the driver’s seat to direct this follow-up to his 2006 Golden Globe®-winning “Cars.” “Cars 2” is co-directed by Brad Lewis, producer of the Oscar®-winning film “Ratatouille,” and produced by visual effects industry veteran Denise Ream (associate producer, “Up”; visual effects executive producer, “Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith”). The film hits the track on June 24, 2011, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ and IMAX® 3D in select theaters.

disclosure: I was not given anything to review, nor compensation for this post. I just really love the Disney/Cars brand and was given the opportunity to pass along a prize to my readers.
