"Cars," which was based on the live-action film, "Doc Hollywood," featured a cast of, well, cars. The main character, Lightning McQueen, is a brash rookie race car who ends up stuck in a small Southwestern town.
The film achieved a notable technological innovation, implementing computerized procedural animation to display 300,000 individual car "fans," a process neither Pixar nor any other studio had done before.
"Cars 2" is now in pre-production and should hit theaters in 2011.
