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 was recently sent a little snippet from a podcast created by Ken Tangen that reveals some interesting details about an upgrade to the car and motorcycle stunt show that performs at both Paris Disneyland’s Walt Disney Studios and Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Yep, that’s Lights, Motors, Action.

You may have heard about a little movie from Pixar coming out this summer. It’s Cars 2, of course. And where better to promote a movie featuring a little red race car than a stunt show that also features a little red car.

I had heard that the Herbie segment would be replaced by Lightning McQueen, but I didn’t realize how extensive the new segment would be. According to the interview with Rob Pottorf, who composed the music for the segment, there will be an 4-5 minute segment with Tow Mater animated on the screen and a stunt car version of Lightening McQueen (and a bad guy) driving around and but not really doing stunts.

If you want to get a sneak peak, it has already debuted in Paris. You can see a video from that park below the jump:

State Farm has joined with Disney•Pixar’s Cars 2 movie for a fun little commercial that features some of the characters from the film. As part of the partnership the company is hosting a 30 city tour featuring life-size vehicles from Cars 2 and prizes.

State Farm will also be a presenting sponsor at the movie’s world premiere on June 18 at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood.
