Over the past weekend I got the chance to see Disney Pixar’s Cars 3 twice in theaters. I have to say it was better the second time because even though I knew what was coming there were things that I wanted to look for such as hidden Easter Eggs and other things that I missed watching it the first time. So you may be wondering why Cars 3 is worth seeing in theaters this summer. Check out my reasons below on why you should go to theaters starting June 16th!
Life Lessons Learned
There are several life lessons learned in the Cars 3 film but 2 stood out to me the most and really touched me. One was about dreams you have. The life lesson learned was whether you dream big or small you can still accomplished them and you should never hold out on any size dream you have. The other life lesson learned is that nothing is ever over and although your role may change when you get older you can still act as a mentor to someone else still doing what you love to do.
There are a few new characters in the this film such as Kerry Washington (voice of “Natalie Certain”), Cristela Alonzo (voice of “Cruz Ramirez”), Armie Hammer (voice of “Jackson Storm”), Nathan Fillion (voice of “Sterling”), Lea DeLaria (voice of “Miss Fritter”) and Isiah Whitlock Jr. (voice of “River Scott”). My favorite new character is Miss Fritter voiced by Lea DeLaria as she is one tough cookie. I will keep this spoiler-free but you will see why she is a fun one when you see the movie as I am sure you will all love her too.
A Little Too Real Scenery
Throughout the film you will notice several shots of scenery that seems so real from the Smoky Mountains to the race track. It was so real that you really thought you were there. When we interviewed the director and producer they mentioned that the animators did tend to get a little carried away and had to tell them to back off a bit. That is what is so neat about an animated film is where you get so lost in it that you really think you are there.
Cars 3 has added 3 new female characters to the film from Kerry Washington (voice of “Natalie Certain”), Cristela Alonzo (voice of “Cruz Ramirez”) and Lea DeLaria (voice of “Miss Fritter”). These 3 empowering women shows girls all over the world that racing cars, being a sportscaster, or the queen of the demolition derby is not just for guys. Girls can do these things too and if you have a dream to do so follow that dream.
Be sure to take the entire family to see Cars 3 playing in theaters everywhere on June 16!
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage! Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2”), produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren (“LAVA” short), “Cars 3” cruises into theaters on June 16, 2017.
