Dragging a little in the box-office, but Cars 3 is a nice movie and a great comeback from the downer that Cars 2 (2011) left when it was released.
Disney’s style of sequels with no new idea is starting to become a pain for the eyes rather than being a joy since they took over Pixar. Like Finding Dory (2016) and Monsters University (2013) both being the last sequels done by Disney/Pixar, Cars 3 was not as good as the first, but not a bad movie to go see with the family.

This latest addition to Disney/Pixar 3D computer-animated films, is the eighteenth Pixar feature film and the third installment in their comedy-sports genre Cars.
The movie starts with Lightning psyching himself for a race, we see our protagonist go out there and continue to leave a mark in history as one of the best racers, but like all good things Lightning time as a top racer was facing an end.

The rookies were becoming faster and more skillful causing Lightning to lose one race after another and having a bad year run. His new sponsor owner started to have new ideas for Lightning, ideas that did not sit well with Lightning. He was to have a new trainer and racing technician Cruz and if he did not win his race in Florida he will retire to focus on brand marketing.

The training with Cruz was not going well and it didn’t make Lightning faster. He had to take his trainer out of the new high-tech training facility to the beach and from there he kept taking her to different places showing her how the old racers trained and showing her the ropes.
But time is closing in on the Florida race and Lightning still needs to get his speed up if he hopes to be the master of his faith and choose the time he will like to retire.

Disney buying Pixar was due to their bad performances in the box-office and crappy stories. Since then though, Disney animations have done more iconic memorable animations than their new subsidiary Pixar. All these releases Bolt (2008), Tangled (2010), Winnie the Pooh (2011), Wreck-It Ralph (2012), Frozen (2013), Big Hero 6 (2014) and Zootopia (2016) have been great.
Since 2013, the above have won the Academy Award for Best Animated Feature except 2015 when Disney didn’t release an animated feature.

This year we are going to have a new idea coming out in November from the Disney/Pixar banner Coco (2017), but 2018 – 2019 will be the year of sequels.
Disney/Pixar have The Incredibles 2 (2018) and Toy Story 4 (2019) and Disney has Wreck-It Ralph 2 (2018) and Frozen 2 (2019).
All four upcoming sequels had great prequels and I do hope Disney will not torch these movies memories with this hunger of milking franchises.
