Mark your calendar for one of my favorite movies of 2017: Cars 3. Grab the kids, friends, grandparents, aunts and uncles for this inspiring story-line with life lessons that appeal across generations. Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary #95 race car, Lightning McQueen is shocked to find himself suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves.
To get back in the game, he will need the help of eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns.
Several months ago, I was selected for a special preview screening of Cars 3 at Pixar Animation Studios. Article: “Press Trip to San Francisco with Disney, Pixar and ABC March 27-29”. At that time, the movie was still in production, so were only able to view about 70% of the entire feature film. Some of the scenes were even in pure sketch form! Our entire audience was instantly pulled into the World of Cars, and was lost within the captivating universal story of different stages in life, and finding our purpose.
The talented Voice Cast includes: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, click here for more “Announcement: Cars 3 Cast Members and New Characters”
Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“) and produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short), “Cars 3” cruises into theaters on June 16, 2017.
