Owen Wilson creates insanely inappropriate Lightning McQueen for ‘Cars 4’ on SNL
Owen Wilson was recently the host of Saturday Night Live, and during one of his skits the actor brought back a character that many of us Disney fans adore, but not in a way that we do. we remembered him.
Owen Wilson has been in the Disney business for quite some time. He recently joined the MCU in the Disney + series Loki as Mobius he will star in the new Haunted house film, but most notably, Wilson is known for bringing Lightning McQueen to life in the Cars franchise. After three movies, a whole country at Disney California Adventure and a whole attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the saying “Ka Chow” is well known to fans around the world.
In a recent SNL sketch, Wilson pretended to walk through the door of Pixar Studios in California, where he was recording. Cars 4: The Spinout. Before Disney fans get too excited, let’s just say this was just a skit and not specific information – and since we’ve been able to find out what the movie was about, we know why. Please note that some words and topics exchanged by Wilson below are adult in nature.
Wilson begins by saying, “Radiator Springs! I’m coming! ”Which seems quite normal for the character. Then things take a turn; Wilson’s next line is,“ Back off, Jack, I wasn’t looking at your wife! ”We can see that Wilson is. a little confused by the line as it’s not something McQueen would typically say, but he moves on.
Once Wilson read the line, “Calm down, I didn’t touch your daughter, she was coming towards me!” He stops recording and asks what the movie is about. We then find out that McQueen is in court and inappropriately hitting other female cars as well as minors (cars that said they were in high school).
Visibly shocked, Wilson is then joined by Larry the Cable Guy, who is Mater’s voice. Larry says McQueen called it the R word, to which Wilson stops recording and says he can’t continue. Once the production shows him how much money he would make from the recording, he agrees to do it with a smile on his face.
Interestingly enough, I think this skit could play on the recent trial between Scarlett Johansson. After Scarlett pays Black Widow was released, many were shocked at the amount, as was Wilson. We also know that Johansson and Disney have now settled the dispute and that the once tarnished relationship is now one of butterflies and rainbows, with Disney eager to collaborate with Johansson on upcoming projects and Scarlett reciprocated.
It comes weeks after the two publicly denigrated each other. Of course, the skit may not relate to anything relating to the lawsuit, but it has a similar tone that money can solve problems for Disney, which is clearly what the skit intended to portray. in a comical light.
