Disney Pixar CARS 2: John Lasseter Talks About Doc Hudson-Paul Newman Tribute

Owen Wilson (voice of Lightning) mentioned there would be a nice tribute to Doc/Paul Newman in the film, John Lasseter has finally said something official in yesterday’s LA Times.

John Lasseter, the Pixar chief creative officer and director of the movie, said that the studio debated incorporating the Doc Hudson character into the June 24 release but decided the best way to honor Newman would be to leave him out. “We have a lovely tribute to Paul in the movie,” Lasseter told 24 Frames at the Oscars on Sunday. “But we didn’t feel it would be right to include him or the character.”

Lasseter didn’t say how the film, which takes Lighting McQueen and Mater on an espionage adventure through the streets of Tokyo, would deal with the absence of Doc Hudson.

So, will Doc appear in a memory flashback? A musical montage without dialogue? Or something really meta like Lightning looking at a diecast of Wrecked Hudson Hornet.
