Disney Pixar has released the first images from its production of Cars 2, by way of concept art.
The artwork, which was shown as part of the Walt Disney Company's annual report, depicts race car Lighting McQueen competing in Tokyo, Japan, on a track in the shadows on Mt. Fuji. Until now, Pixar has been pretty hush-hush about the upcoming sequel, which is scheduled to hit theaters on June 24, 2011.
Previously, the film was described as follows:
"All the world's a racetrack as racing superstar Lightning McQueen zooms back into action, with his best friend Mater in tow, to take on the globe's fastest and finest in this thrilling high-octane new installment of the "Cars" saga. Mater and McQueen will need their passports as they find themselves in a new world of intrigue, thrills and fast-paced comedic escapades around the globe."
