After suffering several losses to the hot new racer on the block, Jackson Storm, Lightning McQueen pushes himself to far and suffers a devastating crash which threatens to end his racing career for good. Refusing to give in Lightning makes it his mission to train in the same way as Storm at the newly refurbished Rusteeze training facility where he is treated as old and run down by trainer Cruz Ramirez and new Rusteeze owner Sterling. With Sterling wanting McQueen to think of his legacy after racing Lighting agrees that if he losses his next race he will quit racing and retire. Lightning, with the help of Cruz go old school, training the way the legends before him trained, while opening Cruz's eyes to a world she once thought was out of reach.
This is Rocky Balboa meets Creed in so many ways, it is the legend teaching the new generation and it is PERFECT. I love this film, and I love this film so much is has knocked down The Lego Batman film from it's top spot of the best animated films of 2017 so far. I never thought Pixar could fix the mistakes of Cars 2 but I was wrong. I would love to see a fourth installment after this film (Cars 4: Cruz Control anyone?)
The films is full of laughs, full of action packed racing but most of all Cars 3 looks bloody beautiful. Visually this is probably the best looking Pixar film of recent times. The race scenes look stunning, the pan of the race track at the start looks breathtaking and you get so many wonderful shots throughout it is truly a sight to see.
As for favorite moments I love the demolition derby scene. Found it bloody funny and real fun. Cars 3 will without a doubt be one of the top animated films of the summer and has already destroyed Despicable Me 3 right out of the gate. I really wouldn't want to be The Emoji Movie and Ninjago right now.
