The iconic Cars franchise has debuted the big screen back in 2006! And like every successful franchise, there will be lots of merchandise and sequels to come. And like every sequel, is Cars 3 a hit or miss… again?

Lightning McQueen raced into moviegoers’ hearts more than 10 years ago and remains an iconic character today. It was that 10-year period that inspired filmmakers to explore what’s next for #95.

Lightning McQueen is back on the big screen, but he’s not a rookie anymore. Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Piston-Cup champion finds himself suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. “The next-gen racers are cool,” says director Brian Fee. “You can see instantly that cars like Jackson Storm are effortlessly fast. We designed these younger, faster cars to be sleek and aerodynamic—and they’re a sharp contrast to Lightning McQueen.”

The trailer was promising. It seems like an epic movie – but was the movie as epic as the trailer?

And like every franchise, the story seems to be lackluster everytime. Although compared to Cars 2, this far better. The franchise brings back a lot of familiar faces with a few new bloods to the movie! This means more merchandise for Disney-Pixar.

Cars 3 is a definite improvement over Cars 2, but it does not even come close to delivering the emotional impact of other Disney-Pixar films. Despite the great visual effects, musical score and animation, Cars 3 still fails to bring in the magic of the first film. They say third time’s the charm, but I can’t say the same for Cars 3.

Cars 3’s ending seems to hint more sequels in the future with fresh new faces. Out with the old and in with the new! Let’s hope the future of the Cars franchise will be a bit more refreshing. It seems like Lightning Mcqueen’s time for retirement has come… but perhaps we’ll still see him in future franchises – he’s the iconic face of the franchise after all.

But other than that, also catch Lou, the animated short film released alongside Cars 3. It’ll be shown before the movie, so don’t miss it!

Cars 3 premieres July 26, 2017 in cinemas nationwide. This review is powered by Disney.
