Disney Sued for Ripping Off Cars Script, Sequel Delayed?

Cars

Jake Mandeville-Anthony, U.K. screenwriter, has just filed an injunction to stop the June 24 release of the highly-anticipated Disney/Pixar sequel, Cars 2. His claim? The uber-company ripped off his script -- Cars was his idea in the first place.

Mandeville-Anthony says he originally submitted a script in the 90s, a three-part screenplay named “Cookie & Co.” and another piece titled “Cars.” His “Cars” contained a sample screenplay, animated car character descriptions, character sketches… even a marketing and merchandising plan. The writer alleges that he submitted his work to Disney and met with Lucasfilm exec Jim Morris in 1993. Morris would go on to join Pixar in 2005. He is now the company’s general manager.

VIDEO: See the Cars 2 Trailer

Lightning and Mater are back. Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy have reprised their respective voice roles to create Cars 2, the high-octane sequel to the successful animated comedy that revolves around a racecar.

In this new adventure, Lightning must test his engine against the other cars competing in the World Grand Prix. The circuit will take him to Tokyo, London and the Italian Riviera.

If he makes it that far! A new villain adds a new wrinkle to the story that kids are sure to love (and maybe, a few adults too). Watch the entire trailer above.

Cars 2 will zoom into theaters on June 24.
