Cars 2 racing to theatres in 2011
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 scheduled for release in mid-2012. But Lasseter, Pixar's chief creative officer, confirmed on Wednesday (local time) 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.
Lasseter says the inspiration for the sequel came from cars from around the world that he saw while doing publicity for Cars.
