Cars3584862619cd5cHave you heard the news? Cars 3 is coming to theaters June 16th. Familiar characters like Lightening McQueen are back along with several new characters, too. I can’t wait! Fasten your seatbelts! Key cast members and new characters in the upcoming faster-than-fast film CARS 3 were recently announced! Joining Owen Wilson in the all-new story that tests the heart of a champion in a high-tech world are Cristela Alonzo and Armie Hammer as unconventional trainer Cruz Ramirez and next-gen racer Jackson Storm, respectively.

cars3“Cristela is full of optimism and a positive energy that I think really comes through in Cruz’s personality,” said CARS 3 Director Brian Fee. “And of course, she’s a hilarious comedian, so that doesn’t hurt either. Armie brought a great combination of intensity and charm to the role of Jackson Storm. His charisma helped create a character you really love to hate.”

About the characters:

Lightning McQueen Video:

Lightning McQueen is world champion—a modern-day racing legend who’s riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood. Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport—but the confidence that got him there. Determined to get back to the pole position, the #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life.

Owen Wilson (“The Royal Tenenbaums,” upcoming “Wonder”) returns to the racetrack as the voice of the champion. Wilson stars in the upcoming Woody Harrelson-directed live film “Lost in London.”

Cruz Ramirez Video:

Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team’s talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it?

Cristela Alonzo (“The Angry Birds Movie”) was called on to help bring the character to life. Alonzo’s debut stand-up special for Netflix, “Lower Classy,” which debuts on Jan. 24, 2017, showcases the comedian’s life as a the daughter of an immigrant, touching on important issues like social class, breaking the glass ceiling and how she can’t get the hang of Zumba.

Jackson Storm Video:

Jackson Storm is fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.

Armie Hammer (“Birth of a Nation”) was tapped as the voice of Jackson Storm. Hammer recently appeared in Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals.” He will next be seen starring in “Free Fire,” directed by Ben Wheatley; “Final Portrait,” directed by Stanley Tucci; and “Call Me by Your Name,” directed by Luca Guadagnino.

Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“) and Produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short), CARS 3 cruises into theaters on June 16th!

Meanwhile, the townsfolk, led by a Stanley-costumed Mater, enjoy the planned “leisurely drive” to retrace Stanley’s original frontier route. Thinking they’re on the same course, a wrong turn sends McQueen and the Baja pros on a treacherously wild bid for survival.

disney planes dvd bluray

Disney’s animated movie, Planes, finally came out on DVD and Blu-ray today to the excitement of children everywhere.   The main character, Dusty, voiced by Dane Cook is a crop-duster plane who wants to be a racer.  He has big dreams of soaring fast and winning races even when everyone tells him that he can’t be a racer.   Dusty wasn’t build for speed and he has an unfortunate fear of heights- ironic for a plane, but with the help and support of his mentor Skipper (Stacy Keach), his mechanic Dottie (Teri Hatcher), and his best friend Chug (Brad Garrett) he enters the big race.

At the big race Dusty meets some new friends including Rochelle (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Ishani (Priyanka Chopra), Bulldog (John Cleese), and my absolute favorite, El Chupacabra (Carlos Alazraqui).  Ripslinger (Roger Craig Smith) wants to win at any cost so he does everything he can to put Dusty out of commission including enlisting the help of his two sidekicks, Echo (Anthony Edwards) and Bravo (Val Kilmer) to take Dusty down.  Dusty is a great friend to all and helps other planes in need which almost costs him the race.  But in the end, Dusty’s friends rally around him to get him fixed up for the last leg of the race.  Want to know how it ends?  Buy your copy of Planes now.

Planes is a great family movie.  It is rated PG but I personally think it is fine for all audiences.   Both of my girls (almost 8 and 10) loved it.  The animation is breathtaking and the characters are lovable.  I was on the edge of my seat with the amazing flight scenes that make the audiences feel like they are soaring in the skies with the characters.  As a parent, I love the underlying lessons of friendship and while it does have humor for both children and adults, it doesn’t have any of the more adult themed humor that some other movies do.  My older daughter asks LOTS of questions about movies (especially the jokes in them) so it is nice to have a movie where there isn’t anything that is going to make me blush when she asks questions.  While love isn’t a huge theme in the movie, I do love the underlying love story between El Chupacabra and Rochelle as do my daughters.
