I am a huge huge fan of Disney’s Cars (movies) and for good reason. I fell in love with Lightning McQueen and all his friends from Radiator Springs in the first movie. I mean who didn’t? Lightning is such a great character. A bit arrogant at times, he has a good heart though, and with the help of his best friend and bud Mater always tagging along. When I heard that Disney was going to revisit the franchise and create a third installment in the series Cars 3, I was totally stoked!
Cars 3 more than entertains, it’s a movie that is geared for both parents and kids. I have to talk a bit about the film (spoiler warning) for anyone who has not seen it, but the film is fantastic! The visuals are absolutely incredible, and hard to believe they have gotten better and better with each new film. If you don’t know what I mean, check out one particular beach scene in the movie and you’ll find out.
Lightning McQueen has seen the last of his racing days as new cars come into the fold such as Jackson Storm (Arnie Hammer) making Lightning (Owen Wilson) appear more as a junker than a top-notch racer. Unable to match the speed or driving ability, Lightning faces retirement. But he’s not giving up yet. He goes on the road to train in secret with the hopes of learning new ways to beat Storm and the younger generation of racers with the help of a new coach.
I loved Cars 3 because in its simplicity it’s about learning who you are and understand that even as age comes into the fold, you are never too old to change, to try and be a better version of yourself.
For kids, it teaches them never give up. Never give in just because someone is faster, better, has more qualifications or more skills. Because there is one thing you can have more than anyone else and it’s called–Heart.
