Not that you needed further proof Cars 2 will be a humongous moneymaker, but the merchandising from the film should easily keep Disney atop the list of worldwide sellers for 2011. License! Global reports that consumers have spent $8 billion on Cars-related items since 2006, and the release of Cars 2 has a chance to become "the largest licensed merchandise program of the year." More good news: Christmas shopping for your 10-year-old nephew just got a whole lot easier. [Deadline]
