I was thinking this morning … Disney/Pixar's “Cars” franchise is basically “The Fast and the Furious,” but for kids. There’s drama, there are fast cars and there’s an adrenaline rush.
“Cars 3” didn’t disappoint. It’s been six years since we left Lighting McQueen (played by Owen Wilson), who was on top of the world when it came to racing. But years go on, times change, and new and faster competitors take to the track.
Summer is made for blockbuster films. And in 2017, there is no shortage. Here are several films to keep on your radar — plus an exclusive Q&am…
In “Cars 3,” McQueen faces the real and harsh reality that he is expendable and that the new and younger generation is just waiting for their chance to take over — as was the case when he began his career.
And in the midst of all of this, he’s introduced to a character who stole the show in my opinion — Cruz Ramirez, expertly voiced by comedienne Cristela Alonzo. As soon as she came on the scene and we learned a bit more about her backstory, it was clear that she was a major part of the plot and direction of the movie. I couldn’t help but yell “girl power” while watching! I truly hope they continue her character’s story in future movies … hint hint.
Being part of a franchise, you know what to expect from “Cars 3.” It’s enjoyable, it's fun and the racing sequences are great for 3D!
