I know a lot of people aren’t looking forward to Cars 2 as much as they do other Pixar films. And for good reason: Cars is primarily a franchise aimed at little boys. That said, I think the movie looks like a blast, what with its globe-trotting spy angle and another trademark Pixar eccentric cast of characters.
Disney has released pictures of every character featured in the film, and from the other cars racing against Lightning McQueen in the first-ever World Grand Prix to a huge assortment of spy characters, it’s always fun to see how Pixar uses character design to accentuate that character’s personality. And then there are the real-life people who appear as Cars in the film, such as the Queen of England and Jeff Gordon (who appears as “Jeff Gorvette”). Even famed Pixar head honcho and Cars director John Lasseter appears (as “John Lassetire”).
Here’s a complete gallery of every character appearing in the film. (The collectors out there will find that the toys are already showing up in stores everywhere.)
