Mr. Schuster is the film’s art director and Mr. Lewis, its co-director.
About their upcoming movie, they revealed one major new character, Finn McMissile, is based on James Bond’s 1964 Aston Martin DB5 and a secret agent babe, body inspired by Jaguar. Finn is given voice by Michael Caine and secret agent babe's by Holley Shiftwell.
“Cars 2″ goes global, with cities like Tokyo and London where the racing-drama takes place. There is even a dramatic nighttime race inspired by the Singapore Grand Prix, Mr. Schuster said.
We will be seeing new look of The hero, Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, rendered sportier with a new flame-style paint job drawn for the studio by the independent designer Chip Foose. New set of wheels, spoiler package and ground effects are added to McQueen's collection.
The most exciting news may be that the film will offer new “villains” based on the AMC Pacer and Gremlin.
