We are still a ways away from the release of CARS 2 in theaters, but /Film has scored an exclusive look at one of the new characters that will appear in the new film, Shu Todoroki. CARS 2 will open in theaters and IMAX on June 24, 2011 from director John Lasseter. Head on over to /Film for a 360 look at the character model.
Character Description of Shu Todoroki: Shu Todoroki is a Le Motor Prototype racer representing Japan and bearing #7 in the World Grand Prix. Shu was raised at the base of the active Mount Asama volcano in Japan, and soon became a champion on the Suzuka Circuit. His sleek design sports a fiery red Ka-Riu dragon, which Shu borrowed from Japanese legend because he relates to the small, yet fierce nature of the dragon. His team legacy is filled with victories – his coach, a Mazda, was the only Japanese car to ever win at Le Mans – and Shu hopes to prove his champion-level racing on the international stage of the World Grand Prix.
