CARS 3 Movie Offers Surprising Twists and Turns
We attended a press screening of the new Disney • PIXAR movie “CARS 3” prior to being released to the public. The Road to the Races CARS 3 event had just made a pit stop in San Diego before we screened the film, so we were especially excited to see it.
The movie has many of the lovable characters we’re familiar with from CARS. You can expect to see Lightning McQueen, Mater, Sally, Luigi, and more. You’ll also see some of the film set in Radiator Springs. This is especially fun for those familiar with CARS Land at Disney California Adventure Park.
It also introduces some new characters, including Cruz Ramirez and Jackson Storm. Cruz is the yellow car. Storm is the black car with blue details.
Going into the screening, we knew little about the plot. We held off on reading the production notes, as we wanted as much as possible to be a surprise.
The film has some surprising twists and turns! We don’t want to divulge everything, but we’ll tell you that watching it brought both cheers and tears. It did not disappoint!
