Cars 3 – Now available on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Download


Ready… set… GO! It’s time to race to your nearest store to pick up a copy of the latest film in the Cars movie franchise, Cars 3.

Cars 3 brings back some of the beloved characters from the past films, and introduces a plethora of new characters.

Some time has passed since the last two Cars films. McQueen is still racing, but he’s faced with a much fiercer competition now a days. New technologies have made cars like McQueen obsolete. Many of his former racemates are being replace by younger, more technologically advanced cars. It’s forcing many cars, like McQueen, to either retire or quit.

McQueen is quickly being overshadowed by a hot new comer named Jackson Storm. Not only is he fast – he’s arrogant too (not very likable).

During an important race, McQueen finds himself in a terrible accident – one that could have totally ended his racing career. Thankfully he’s alive, but it’s going to take him many months to recover.

McQueen finds a long road ahead of him (no pun intended). Between recovering from his injuries and building up his confidence to race again – he has a lot to deal with. His friends are still by his side and are rallying around him to recover and get back on the race track.

To make matters worse, McQueen’s sponsor, Rust-eze Racing Team, has been sold to a new owner, Sterling. Sterling is ready to take McQueen out of future races and simply use him to endorse products.

Is McQueen ready to retire? Or is there enough spark in him to make it into another race and win? To find out you need to pick up a copy of Cars 3. Look for it where ever movies are sold.

Here’s a fun “trailer-like” promotional for your enjoyment.


I still remember when we saw the trailer for the first Cars film back in 2006. Our son was only six at the time and he was so anxious to see the film that he couldn’t stop talking about it. He’s never liked movies either, but Cars is the one movie he HAD to see.

We saw the second installment on DVD (not in the theater). I wasn’t as keen about the second one as I was with the first.

Cars 3 is a whole other level. It’s like it’s “matured” some how. It’s still a great film for kids, but the action on screen (especially the near fatal accident) seems like it was geared more towards older children and adults. The first film was “cute.” This film is a lot more “serious.”

The animation is amazing. It’s so realistic that you’d think you were watching a real automobile race. I think the animation in this film is far more superior than it’s predecessors.
