Even though I’ve now seen the movie 1,080,699,324 times, I find the world of Cars completely confusing. There are obvious questions – are Cars born or manufactured, why are some human-like while others are cows and bugs, and what was this world like in, say 1875? As I watch, I keep coming up with more and more questions. Do Cars get to determine their own lives, or are they predestined by their make and model? Why have gas nozzles if they can drink from their mouths? Does it hurt them to lose tires? How does Radiator Springs support itself? Why would Cars need military aircraft? What kind of government do they have? Did they kill off all of the humans?

Others have had the same questions, it seems. Will the sequel answer them?
