I was thinking they might have trouble selling this to a wider audience, and the Bond/spy parody thing isn't really inspiring much yet... Will Pixar really be able to make it a big blockbuster or just a motor vehicle film version of Thomas the Tank Engine for young boys? And that's from someone who loves the first film. This will challenge them.
What's the next Pixar movie that is not a sequel? Next year Cars 2 and then Monster's Inc. 2. Hopefully there will be something original too in the next years.
I thought the same after seeing the spy teaser and somehow I think that this movie could be the first failure by Pixar. I'm sure it will make a lot of money, but I'm not sure if it will live up to the other Pixar movies in terms of depth, story and emotions. I fear that it will be like a Dreamworks movie.
BUT Pixar can prove me wrong and I have only seen the teaser. So there is still a lot to come and I'm still confident and hope that it will be a good movie.

Wikipedia wrote:The story sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), his pit team and new pit boss Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) head around the world for the Race of Champions, to take place in five different countries and involve the champions of different disciplines like Formula One and rally driving. First up is a race in Tokyo, starting at Mount Fuji and heading downtown; then there's a German race through the Black Forest; then "Porto Corsa" in Italy, which is based partly on the Monte Carlo Grand Prix; then a 24-hour race around Paris (so somewhat like Le Mans then) and finally a thrilling climax in London, approaching Buckingham Palace (where the guards appear to be Land Rovers). However, Mater, involved in a case of mistaken identity, saves the life of a British secret agent named Finn McMissile and finds himself embroiled in his world of international espionage.
DisneyPictures wrote:Hey everyone, I work with Disney/Pixar and love that you all have already seen the teaser trailer and concept art! I am working with the studio to help get the word out about the film and share the latest assets to the fans, but I was wondering what are your thoughts on Pixar’s portrayal of some of the world’s most impressive landmarks?
Star racecar Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the incomparable tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret spy mission, Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. Adding to the fast-paced fun is a colorful new all-car cast that includes secret agents, menacing villains and international racing competitors.

Adam wrote:However, the important thing is that they have created characters that the public have adored and resonate with them. Therefore, it make sense to tell another story about them. Pixar have said previously that they will only make a sequel if the characters are popular and most importantly, if there is a story to tell.
