Cars 2 Artwork Revealed in Disney Annual Report 2009!

Even if you’re not an investor, Disney’s Annual Report is worth getting excited about because it oftentimes contains preview images from upcoming Pixar films.

In this year’s Studio Entertainment section of the report, stunning artwork from Cars 2 production (click to view expanded image) was made publicly available for the first time! Tokyo’s Mt. Fuji serves as the backdrop for this digital painting which features Lightning McQueen slightly leading against an unnamed Formula 1 racecar.

Cars 2 (still no mention of World Grand Prix) follows Lightning McQueen and Mater as they travel the globe in their continuing adventures. With this piece we’re able to better imagine what we’ve been hearing from Disney/Pixar’s press events hyping what sounds like a really entertaining continuation to the original film.

Late last year we learned more specifics about the plot of Cars 2; the Race of Champions takes the automotive duo to Cars universe parallels of locations in Japan, Italy, Germany, France and England for competition against world class racers! During the course of their globe trotting, Mater is mistaken for a top spy named Finn McMissile, making for some great hijinks.

Back to the annual report, you can check it out in HTML or PDF versions and browse through statements on all of The Walt Disney Company’s operations. Toy Story 3 graces the cover while praise abounds for the success of Up and WALL•E theatrically and on home video inside.

What do you think about this piece of Cars 2 artwork? Are you more excited for the upcoming sequel now that a visual representation is available? Is it just me, or did Lightning finally install working headlights?

    Oh hey, headlights! I was kinda “meh, whatever, it’s pretty” until you pointed that out.

    But now what’s Sally gonna nickname him? D8

    Guess Rusty and Dusty were able to finally get enough money to get McQueen his own pair of headlights.

    Leirin – Not long after The Bear and the Bow was announced in April of 2008, we got this piece of concept art from a picture taken at the press event: http://www.effets-speciaux.info/img/photo/34-27.jpg

    Great! I was just beginning to calm myself so that this whole year left of waiting wouldn’t be so incredibly miserable, and this got me excited all over again…. and now I don’t care!!! I CAN’T WAIT to see this movie!!!!

    Hmm… headlights? Sounds cool but… as “Netbug009” said, what will Sally call him now? “Hubby”? wink wink =D

    I’ve seen quite a few things around the web referencng the blog about the headlights comment. I seriously have no idea what to say, it;s a wild guess and for all we know it could be light shining off of Lightning’s reflective surface.
    But if he does, in fact, have headlights then you heard it here first! Just kidding, I hope he does have headlights though. :)

    It may also be a mistake. The artist creating the picture may have painted the flashing headlights without stopping to remember he doesn’t have any.

    My son LOVES everything about CARS! and hes only 2yrs old.
    I loved the first movie b/c it had a strong story that made sense and stayed to the point from begining to end. I just hope the second movie has a good story to it and is not a rushed movie that wont make sense like alot of sequels lately.
