On Monday I had the opportunity to go to an early screening of Cars 3. I was able to take my son along with me, and it was extra special because it was his first time going to the movies. He loves both of the Cars movies, so he was extra excited to see Lightning McQueen on a big screen. I remember when the original came out when I was in jr.high, so sharing this with him was fun!
Cars 3 had many of the beloved characters Lightning McQueen ( Owen Wilson ) Mater ( Larry the Cable guy ) Doc Hudson ( Paul Newman ) and Sally ( Bonnie Hunt) along with many new characters Cruz Ramirez ( Christela Alonso) and Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) along with many other talented voices.
Cars 3 started with Lightning McQueen at the peak of his career so far, but starting to feel the pressures of the fancy rookie drivers coming in on the scene. Tragedy strikes and Lightning’s confidence is shattered and struggles to find the courage to race again. However, with the help of his trainer Cruz , he discovers why he loves to race in the first place.
The vocal casting is incredible and PIXAR always comes through with animation. The movie was entertains and funny for the entire audience, both young and old.
So if you’re looking for a fun family outing to beat the heat this weekend, I suggest you find a theater playing Cars 3 near you ! I hope you enjoy it just as much as we did.
