    The Queen (voice of Vanessa Redgrave)

    With the final stage of the World Grand Prix racing through the historic streets of London, England, the Queen is quietly elated she was invited to preside over the finish line by Sir Miles Axlerod. Painted in shades of the most royal blues and never without her jeweled crown, the Queen is the definition of decorum and regality, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t enjoy a bit of first-rate competition!

    Chauncy Fares

    No one knows the sites, streets or shortcuts of London better than the jovial Chauncy Fares, a quintessential London black cab.

    Prince Wheeliam

    Prince Wheeliam of England is an avid racing fan. He can’t believe his luck that the final race of the one-of-a-kind World Grand Prix is happening on the streets of London. Though he must remain impartial when by his grandmother the Queen’s side, he is privately rooting for his fellow Brits Lewis Hamilton and Nigel Gearsley to cross the finish line first.

    Progression 1 of 5: Tokyo is the first stop in the World Grand Prix where Lighting McQueen, Mater and the Radiator Springs gang experience many new wonders of their global adventure – a Kabuki performance, Sumo wrestling, the glow of neon on the streets, and the glamorous race kickoff party. It is here that Mater is mistaken for an American secret agent, and is propelled into the world of global espionage. The Tokyo race sequence alone took over 1400 storyboards to portray the action involved. ©Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

    Progression 2 of 5: This frame shows the camera and character staging that precedes animation, known as Layout. The set models and dressing are still in progress and will be finalized once animation is completed. ©Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

    [​IMG]
    Progression 3 of 5: This frame shows the final character animation poses. The primary and secondary characters are keyframe animated. Background cars that populate the road are added procedurally using a crowds software system. ©Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

    [​IMG]
    Progression 4 of 5: The character and set shading encompasses the color, texture and material attributes of every surface, and determines how surfaces will respond to lights. In the world of “Cars,” graphics play a big role in the shaded scene, especially with the many neon signs in Tokyo. ©Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

    [​IMG]
    Progression 5 of 5: Virtual lights provide illumination from thousands of light sources such as street lamps, headlights and neon signs. The reflective car bodies and wet street require a computationally intensive technique called Raytracing. Additional visual details such as lens flare from headlights and colored fog around the signs are added. The final rendered image is computed on a Renderfarm and has to be free of any visual artifacts. ©Disney/Pixar. All Rights Reserved.

    Brent Mustangburger is an American sports broadcasting icon. With the self-proclaimed “best stall in the garage,” the excitable 1964½ Ford Mustang is widely considered one of the most recognizable voices in the history of automobile sports television and associated with some of the most memorable moments in modern sports. At the World Grand Prix, Brent will be calling the turn-by-turn action with informed analysis and unparalleled zeal.
