‘Cars 3’ Cast On Dreaming Big and How One Person Can Make All The Difference
eelyajekiM   |  

Cars 3

Pixar’s Cars 3 is a huge change of pace for the franchise. The film sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) blindsided when a new generation of faster, more powerful, and younger racers join the racing circuit. Determined to stay in the sport that he loves, Lightning goes through a new-age training regiment with the help of Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), an eager young technician who has her own plans for winning. And while they might not agree on which training method works, they discover they need each other to reach their goals more than they realized.

We were fortunate enough to attend the press day of Pixar’s latest animated film where the attendees talked about who inspires them, some of their personal struggles, how one person can make the difference, and more. Check out what they had so say here below.

Movie Review: Cars 3

Cars 3

Cars 3
Director: Brian Fee
Screenwriters: Kiel Murray, Bob Peterson, Mike Rich
Cast: Owen Wilson, Cristela Alonzo, Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt, Nathan Fillion, Kerry Washington, Lea DeLaria
Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures
Rated PG| 109 Minutes
Release Date: June 16, 2017

One of the things that continues to impress me about Pixar’s Cars franchise is its resiliency and heart. Though it is considered to be one of Pixar’s weakest franchises, it managed to become a trilogy. It may not resonate as much with fans as some other Pixar films do, but Cars has continually shown that it has what it takes to be great. Even if it that means it needed to take two “very safe” films to get there. So Cars 3 doesn’t take any huge risks, it takes an unconventional approach to possibly ending Lightning McQueen’s (Owen Wilson) story.

While that is a bit refreshing for the franchise, it does come with its own set of issues and concerns. All of it depends on how you look at it. Check out my full review below.

Check Out The Honest Trailer For ‘Cars’ / ‘Cars 2’

Honest Trailer Cars Cars 2

With Pixar trying to ring the cash register again with Cars 3 next week, the gang at Screen Junkies decided to tackle the original 2006 film for their Honest Trailer. Solely based on the strength of the name Pixar, this movie somehow earned over $460 million worldwide. In full disclosure, I never saw Cars and never cared to. This was during the time where my younger sister was too old for kids movies, and I was yet to have kids so animation was kinda dead to me as a moviegoer. And when Cars 2 came out in 2011, all I ever heard about that one was, “it’s the worst Pixar movie ever.” Anyway, because… apparently someone demanded it, we’re getting a trilogy. So sit back and watch as narrator Jon Bailey shreds some of the lesser material in the Pixar catalog.

Check out the Honest Trailer below.

Watch: New ‘Cars 3’ Trailer “Rivalry”
The Movie God   |  

Cars 3

We just saw a trailer for Pixar’s trilogy-maker Cars 3 a couple of weeks back, but a new trailer has been released this week.

The new trailer is titled “Rivalry,” and you can probably guess what it focuses on. It opens with the voice of the late, great Paul Newman, who voiced Doc Hudson in the original movie—the final character he ever played. Pixar had voice over he recorded for the first movie that was never used, so we’ll be hearing new stuff from Doc in the movie, likely in flashbacks or dream sequences of some sort. The trailer then shifts to Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and the seemingly unbeatable racing star he’s up against, Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).

Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.

Cars may not be as universally loved as its fellow Pixar films, but like all Pixar films, it has plenty of heart. Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) has been steering the franchise’s success for the last two films, where he has discovered the true meaning of humility and friendship.

But now it’s time for him to suffer a very critical loss and go back to basics to discover that some careers don’t last forever, but it’s the legacy that you leave behind that truly matters. Check out the latest trailer for Cars 3 below.

‘Cars 3’ Extended Look Trailer Released
The Movie God   |  

Pixar's Cars 3

The first teaser trailer for Disney•Pixar’s Cars 3 was released back in November, and it was just a little bit depressing, especially if you’re a fan of the series and Lightning McQueen.

Now an extended look version of that trailer has been released. It starts off with the same depressing sequence we saw in the teaser, and is followed by about 40 seconds of new footage that we haven’t seen before.

You can check out the new trailer below, along with some recently released character videos for Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), and Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer).

Disney In Depth: 13 Reasons Why Disney California Adventure Rocks
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

Welcome to California… albeit that you are already in California when in this park. Though once discounted as Disneyland’s unwanted sibling of a park, Disney California Adventure Park has evolved in the past 13 years to become a must-visit destination. February 2014 marks the 13th anniversary of the place that celebrates all things Golden State. Though 13 could be considered an unlucky number – and equally so, for much time Disney California Adventure was referred to as unlucky – the park has been a fortune for the Disneyland Resort.

Here are 13 Reasons Why Disney California Adventure Rocks (in no particular order).

Disney In Depth: Disney To Acquire Lucasfilm, An Analysis From The Disney Fan Perspective
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

We were all shocked to discover when Darth Vader revealed himself to be Luke Skywalker’s father. But we experienced perhaps even more shock when news broke this week that The Walt Disney Company was acquiring Lucasfilm, George Lucas’ 41-years-strong company. Now, Mickey Mouse will be both Vader’s and Luke’s parent, though not by blood — what an awkward “modern family” that deserves some critical examination.

Puns and jokes aside, this $4 billion purchase follows what has been a whirlwind of new ventures for Disney in just the past seven years since Bob Iger attained the role of CEO of The Walt Disney Company. 2006 marked Disney’s purchase of Pixar. 2009 signified Disney’s purchase of Marvel. And now 2012 represents news of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm. One can only imagine what the Mouse House will obtain in 2015 if this ironically-consistent pattern of buying a big entity every three years continues. These heavily-expensive, but ingenious acquisitions reflect Disney’s focus of branding and leveraging well-known and well-received properties.

Disney In Depth: Soundtrack Review: ‘Everybody Wants To Be A Cat’
Brett Nachman   |  

Disney In Depth banner

"Everybody Wants To Be A Cat" album coverMore than a year ago, Walt Disney Records released a soundtrack to little fanfare within the general music community, but rightfully deserves some attention. Collect a bunch of famous Disney tunes and gather some jammin’ jazz artists. Spin the two together and your creation is an awesome assortment of standards breathing new energy. Here is my review of Disney Jazz Volume 1: Everybody Wants To Be A Cat.

1. “Ev’rybody Wants To Be A Cat” by Roy Hargrove: The Grammy-winning trumpeter lends his potent musical skills into mixing up this classic tune from The Aristocats. While the first minute or so of the five-minute cover closely resembles the jazzy piece, he then spins some impressive arrangements. I could imagine listening to this strong instrumentation in a coffeehouse or lounge. Though it steers off in a different direction for much of the entirety, Hargrove returns to the memorable theme toward the end.

2. “Chim Chim Cher-Ee” by Esperanza Spalding: The artist who prevailed over teen sensation Justin Bieber at the 2011 Grammys as the “Best New Artist” adeptly takes control over the Sherman Brothers’ legendary melody. The orchestration possesses a French flair, with some light piano and accordion in the background at different points. Spalding scats with beautiful range in this romantic version that still stirs up a chilling sensation. Guesses are that if Dick Van Dyke has heard Spalding’s take on the piece, he would be pretty proud.
