Disney Cars: Extended Look at Cars 3, What You Should Know, & Carsland!

After a distressing couple of months with nothing but that awful (as in, upsetting) teaser trailer of Lightening McQueen getting in a wreck that "changes everything"... we finally are getting an extended peek at the new Cars 3! Cars Movies ~ My Family's Favorite! First, I'd like to address the commentary I've read online about Cars and Cars 2 "not being Disney/Pixar's best work".  What?  What?  What's this? To hear that someone thinks the Disney Cars movies aren't great films genuinely puzzles me?  My family absolutely ADORES Cars.  The setting, the characters, the storylines, the jokes, Mater's twangy accent.  All of it. Sure, having a young son who loves all-things-with-wheels has increased our interest.  But as an adult parent who has watches hundreds (perhaps thousands) of animated movies in the past decade, I know of what I speak.  The Cars movies are fantastic, and well worth a repeated watch.  And we can't wait for the release of Cars 3! I'd just like to plug … [Read more...]
