Disney/Pixar’s “CARS 2″ Live on Tour

I was recently invited  to attend the Disney Pixar’s “Cars 2” adventure at the Javits Center. Although I wasn’t able to attend Karl went in my place. He had a blast! Below is his recap. Enjoy!


Cars,an animated Disney movie, was a national phenomenon that delighted both children and adults, while teaching morals it also sparked laughter.

Cars 2, set to hit theaters on June 24, 2011, will bring back old characters: Lightning McQueen and Mater the Tow truck, and add a few new characters, like the super cool British spy Finn McMissle. This movie will take Lightning and Mater on an all new adventure, overseas, to the first ever World Grand Prix that will not only test their friendship but their wits too. Mater takes on the job of being a spy all the while trying to help Lightning in this high profile race!

Not only are the Cars 2 characters making a pit stop on the big screen, they are stopping off at 33 cities (sponsored by Statefarm) including New York City, Philidelphia, Boston, Miami and many others. This past week they were at NYC for the Auto Show and I was lucky enough to get invited and see them!

Although the three characters shown below were stationary, they were remote controlled and could move up to 10 MPH at any given moment! How cool is that?

Lightning was ready for the camera!

Mater was looking, well… rusty, but happy none the less.

Finn looked extremely cunning.

“State Farm is thrilled to present the ‘Cars 2’ ‘Agents on a Mission’ tour,” says Pam El, marketing vice president, State Farm. “Like our force of 18,000 agents across the U.S. and Canada, whose mission it is to help people realize their dreams every day, families can become secret agents by participating in fun ‘Cars 2’-themed missions at the tour and online.”

Christine Perez, official spokesperson for the Cars tour, said many great things about the movie including the fact that there will be more laugh out loud moments in this movie compared to the last, but there was one thing that stuck with me most.

The beauty of this movie is that it will be able to transcend cultural lines!

It was that one statement that really made me want to see this movie! I want to see how it bridges racial gaps!
