Another day, another character debut from Cars 2.This time, it's the turn of four characters who Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Tow Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) meet on their visit to Japan.

The character blurbs on these newcomers are as follows.

Okuni
Okuni is a micro car Kabuki dancer who dons the traditional white-painted face and an exquisite colorful kimono for her performances at the Kabuki theater in Tokyo, Japan.

Kingpin Nobunaga
As a professional Sumo wrestler at an arena in Tokyo, Japan, Kingpin Nobunaga is a gold-painted micro van who fights his fiercest matches when he’s wearing his lucky purple mawashi.

Pinion Tanaka
Pinion Tanaka is a gold-painted micro van and a professional Sumo wrestler from Tokyo, Japan, who’s always a menacing sight in the ring in his signature teal mawashi.

Zen Master
A master in the art of sculpting the serene zen rock garden at the Tokyo museum, Zen Master wears his old woven reed hat and uses his antique wood rake to create mesmerizing patterns in the garden’s sand.

And if you want more, there are some deeply gorgeous vintage-style posters to enjoy.

Cars 2 is out on July 22.
