Disclosure: I attended the #ThorRagnarokevent and my expenses: flight, accommodations, transportation and some meals were be covered by Disney. All opinions, however, are always 100% mine.

Disney and Pixar present CARS 3, a fast-paced new tale of Lightning McQueen, his classic CARS friends and a new spirited trainer Cruz Ramirez! Lighting finds himself pushed out of racing by a new generation of faster and younger cars and goes on a journey to discover where he belongs in this new type of high-octane competition. CARS 3- the third film in the now-iconic CARS film franchise—will cruise home Digitally in HD on Oct. 24 and Blu-ray™ on Nov. 7!


We all get older and as that happens, there are others who are younger and faster. What do you do? That's the theme in Cars 3.

Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) is back and still racing. When a new car comes to town, Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), Lightning finds himself losing to Jackson to this newer model race car. As more of these new Next-Generation cars appear on the scene, Lightning starts realizing that things will never be the same. After a car crash, Lightning finds himself back at Radiator Springs.


His friends, Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Sally (Bonnie Hunt), Ramone (Cheech Marin) help him heal and find himself again. Lightning realizing it's time to get back his roots and goes back to dirt track racing. He gains the attention of Mr. Sterling (Nathan Fillion) and he recruits Lightning to train a his new training facility. His new trainer Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) gives Lightning a new attitude on racing.

As the movie goes along, Cruz and Lighting have an interesting encounter at a demolition derby. And in the end, Lightning finds out that sometimes it is time to make room for the new generation of racers.


The movie is really good. It is great for kids and adults. I was thoroughly entertained. The characters are completely believable and fun. The movie teaches a good lesson to kids. I watched it with my great nephews and they loved it. It really brings back the original characters and shows us how friends, old or new, really matter.
