026: News: November 17, 2010

Cars 2 releases a new trailer, a new poster, and new photos!  Also, Disney pushes Toy Story 3 for Best Picture consideration, and a boyfriend seeks out the help of a professional designer to create a specialty engagement ring box based on Toy Story 3 characters!

(Note: Cars 2 is discussed from 3:30 until 15:54 in the episode.  Not much by way of spoilers is said, but if you want to remain totally free from knowledge about Cars 2 before it comes out, then avoid this part of today’s episode.)
