Disney Wins the Race with Cars 3


Disney has another winner with the third movie in the “Cars 3” trilogy. It looks like Lightning McQueen has finally hit the end of the road.  Actor Owen Wilson (“Zoolander” Marley and Me” “Wedding Crashers” has resumed his role as the hero of the Disney classic. After crashing in the big race, everyone has basically said that the old racing car is done. The new game in town is Jackson Storm (voiced by Armie Hammer) . He is everyone’s new star. And who gives the stats for the racers ? Only the lady who knows her stats and that is Natalie Certain. Natalie is voiced by none other than beauty icon and Washington fixer, Kerry Washington. Kerry has said in interview after interview that she is excited about being in her first animated cartoon, especially for Disney.  But Kerry isn’t the only ABC star that is in the Pixair movie.  “Goldberg’s star Jeff Garlin, “Blackish” star Jennifer Lewis and former “Castle” star , Nathan Fillion as the dashing Sterling called in to rescue Lightning ‘s career.  Sterling has a team of experts including , trainer Cruz Rasmirez. Cruz is voiced by Cristela Alonzo, who was the star of the short lived ABC series by the same name. Cruz is a tough trainer, but she has higher aspirations then just being a trainer. She has worshipped McQueen and dreamed of the day she raced. But people have taught her she can’t race and must settle. Hmmm sounds like a message movie to me. Women have been taught to settle. McQueen has one last chance to prove himself and he and Cruz work together to prepare. Does he win the race? You will have to see the movie to find out. Disney favorites Billy Crystal, Tom Hanks, and Bonnie Hunt also voice characters.
