#Cars3 Cannot Be Missed

#Cars3 Cannot Be Missed

Usually a Disney movie commercial comes on TV and JustaBXgirl asks a billion and two times if we can go see it.  The ads for Cars 3 came on and honestly she wasn’t that impressed!   She told me she would let me know if she would be attending the screening with me.  I know, craziness.  Me on the other hand couldn’t wait for the movie.  I mean who doesn’t love the Radiator Springs gang?  Fast forward to us seeing the movie a few days ago and me looking for images to add to this review.  Her little self was right over my shoulders saying “mommy, I loved that movie.  Can we see it again?”

We were invited to attend this movie as media. As always all opinions are honest and solely those of mine and JustaBXgirl.


Yes baby girl.  We can definitely see Cars 3 again.  I loved the messages this movie touched on.

MEET THE LEGENDS — Lightning McQueen comes hood to hood with a group of characters who represent the roots of stock car racing—and provide a link to Lightning’s late coach and mentor, Doc Hudson. From left: River Scott (voice of Isiah Whitlock Jr.), Junior “Midnight” Moon (voice of Robert Glenn “Junior” Johnson), Smokey (voice of Chris Cooper), Louise “Barnstormer” Nash (voice of Margo Martindale), and Lightning himself (voice of Owen Wilson). “Cars 3” opens in U.S. theaters  on June 16, 2017. ©2017 Disney•Pixar.

Friendship: The Radiator Springs gang really is more like family than friends but the message of support and loyalty holds up.  You even get to see the friendly camaraderie between Lightning McQueen and some of the other veteran racers.  My favorite show of friendship though is when Lightning visits Thomasville and meets Smokey and the gang.  It was a great way to reinforce the idea that the more things change the more they stay the same.  The Thomasville cars have been friends for a really long time and have seen plenty of things since their racing days.  While the Thomasville crew might have been my favorite I can’t deny that the Thunder Hollow Speedway friends are the most entertaining!  It’s kind of hard to believe that Miss Fritter and Co are friends when they spend so much time trying to demolish each other but we learn it’s all in good fun.

Girls Can Do Anything:   I found the movie to be empowering for little girls.  Sally has always been a favorite of mine.  She’s always shown that a car can be beautiful and brilliant but she’s been pretty much it.  This movie shows that girl cars are just as strong, tough, smart and resilient as their male counterparts.  The best part is that all of that isn’t left just to one character to convey.  We have Sally, we have Cruz, We have Natalie Certain, we have Miss Fritter and we definitely can’t forget about Louise “Barnstormer” Nash.  Her line about Doc not liking “fast cars” had me giggling.

OFF TO THE RACES — Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” is teaming up with NASCAR this year as crowd favorite Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) prepares to return to the big screen June 16, 2017, alongside elite trainer Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo). Details about the season-long collaboration, which marks the biggest between the “Cars” franchise and NASCAR, were shared today (Feb. 23, 2017) in Daytona Beach, Fla., ahead of this weekend’s 59th annual Daytona 500—for which Wilson will serve as grand marshal. © 2017 Disney•Pixar.

Mentoring:  Finding someone to be your mentor is critical to being successful.  I’ve been blessed to have some really powerful mentors in my life and I love that this movie shows that once you’ve been mentored you have a responsibility to pay that gift forward.  Lightning might not have sent out to become a mentor but I for one look forward to seeing his growth as one because don’t be fooled mentors learn a lot from their mentees as well.

Grab your favorite speed racer and hit the theaters for this over the weekend.  You won’t be disappointed.  Oh and you will LOVE the short film LOU at the beginning.  It has a great message as well.
