Owen Wilson will return to voice race car Lightning McQueen in Cars 2
With Toyota's ongoing troubles very much in the headlines, animation studio Pixar has reassured fans that its Cars are not being recalled.
Reports on Wednesday morning suggested the company had delayed its eagerly-awaited sequel, Cars 2, by six months.
But the company has now clarified that the film will hit cinemas as planned on 24 June 2011.
The error arose when Disney chief executive Bob Iger was misquoted in the transcript of a conference call.
While discussing the Disney Company's first quarter earnings, Iger was quoted as telling financial analysts "the second instalment of Cars... will hit theatres in December 2011".
Pixar has now re-confirmed the film's original release date. It is due in UK cinemas on 22 July.
The reinstated release date also secures the fate of another Disney title, fairy tale The Bear and the Bow.
The first Pixar feature to be directed by a woman, Brenda Chapman's film had looked to be in jeopardy, as it too was intended to hit cinemas in December 2011.
Cars 2 will see race car Lightning McQueen - voiced by Owen Wilson - embark on a world tour that takes him to Britain, France, Germany and Japan.
Also along for the ride are slow-witted tow truck Mater and new four-wheeled character Finn McMissile, a Bond-style secret agent.
In the same conference call, Mr Iger revealed the re-release of classic animated feature Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on the Blu-ray format had been a big success for the company.
"Snow White, we are told, was the number one Blu-ray title in calendar 2009," he said.
