Sophia Loren joins cast of Pixar’s Cars 2

I’ve resisted posting every image of every new celebrity introduced as a character on Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 2”, but I couldn’t resist when a classy actress like Sophia Loren was added to the list. So what if she’s only doing the versions translated into Italian.

It’s absolute amore when “Cars 2” races into a charming village near Porto Corsa, Italy, this summer: Lightning McQueen (center) is warmly welcomed by Luigi’s favorite uncle, Uncle Topolino (left), and his aunt, masterful cook Mama Topolino (right)—who’s voiced by Academy Award-winning actress Sophia Loren in 21 countries worldwide, including Italy, China, Russia, Brazil, Spain, Mexico, France and Japan, all of which will feature her lines in Italian.

Academy Award-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave provides the voice of Mama Topolino for the film’s release in English speaking countries, including the U.S. “Cars 2” hits the track on June 24, 2011, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D in select theaters.

Pixar has also released a new short clip titled: Tokyo – Party. Find it below the jump:

    I’m confused…the movie is done, right? But they kept her involvement secret until now?

    I love that Luigi’s aunt and uncle are named Topolino…. it means “tiny mouse” in Italian and is what Italians call Mickey Mouse! :D
