    The 100,000 dollars question is, Will they introduce an Electric? The Director has a Tesla as well as some other key execs at Pixar.

    So there is an Electric. He's apparently seen the light.

    Official Description:

    Sir Miles Axlerod is a former oil baron who has sold off his fortune, converted himself into an electric vehicle and has devoted his life to finding the renewable, clean-burning energy source of the future—ultimately discovering what he believes is the fuel everyone should be using. Axlerod is also the car behind the World Grand Prix, a three-country race he created that attracts the world’s top athletes—but it’s really an excuse to show off his new wonder-fuel, Allinol.

    Not sure what Allinoil is but I do note the "eco symbol" wheels.

    He has in-wheel motors. Note also the EV sound.

    New cars get worse quality scores, SRT gets branded and Big Oil picks a fight with Lightning McQueen - Jalopnik

    The Trades fluff off the mediocre reviews saying the last one had similar and with worldwide distribution and merchandising that Pixar will do just fine.

    I'm planning on cheering the aforementioned EV character.

    Honestly, Cars is probably my least favorite Pixar film (while The Incredibles is easily my favorite). I find most Pixar films fairly clever in their story telling, while Cars just felt like a (cliched) Disney movie. This sequel looks kinda interesting (from the trailers), but I doubt I'll go see it in a theater.

    It was years before I saw Cars. In fact it was only this year when it came on TV, on a wet afternoon. I enjoyed it more than I'd thought I would from the reviews.

    By the way: Bush, any relation?

    Exactly Doug. I agree with both comments and even put The Incredibles in top five films of all time, The point was that even though Cars was a "stinker" it did really well. The other thing about Cars is the Art Direction and Production Design. There are more car references hidden in scenes than anyone could ever notice in a single viewing. Amazingly beautiful and clever. Sorta like the the Mickeys at Disney properties (Parks, Ships, etc.) Too many to find and moderately cool when you do.

    I saw the movie last night (opening night). I personally liked Cars. I thought Cars 2 was just as good. I didn't read any of the reviews, so I don't really know what they complained about. But I can definitely see why Big Oil wouldn't like this movie.

    The Incredibles is up there on my all time best list too.
