Cars 3 is in theaters everywhere today! Out of all the Disney･Pixar Cars movies, this one is the best. You don’t want to miss it! Check your local showtimes and order your Cars 3 tickets now!
You can read my review to see how much I loved the Cars 3 music and characters, and you can also read my unbelievable interview with the stars of Cars 3: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Kerry Washington and Armie Hammer.
My kids loved Cars toys when they were younger. My daughter favored those that lit up, made noises and had more bells and whistles. My son could have been a happy kid with only his die cast Cars characters to play with and nothing else.
Honestly, “obsession” with those little vehicles would be an understatement. Matchbox-size Lightning McQueen, Mater, Ramone, Sally and others were a daily fixture in our lives for years!
I recently returned from attending the Cars 3 premiere and press day, Disney･Pixar sent me home with a load of Cars 3 toys and books in my suitcase!
