9 June 2011 One Comment

While many Disney/Pixar fans are eagerly anticipating the release of Cars 2 in the United States in just a few more weeks, international fans have something else to look forward to about the new film. Actress Sophia Loren will be lending her talents to the film as a voice actor in many of its international releases.

In Cars 2, Lightning McQueen races into a charming village near Porto Corsa, Italy. Here, he is welcomed by Luigi’s favorite uncle, Uncle Topolino, and his aunt, the talented chef Mama Topolino. Loren will perform the voice for Mama Topolino in the film’s release in 21 countries around the world, including Italy, China, Russia, Brazil, Spain, Mexico, France and Japan. All of these releases will feature her lines in Italian. In English-speaking countries including the US, the role is played by Academy Award-winning actress Vanessa Redgrave.

Cars 2 will premiere in US theatres on June 24, 2011. The film will be presented in select theatres in Disney Digital 3D and IMAX 3D.
