Storyline

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician with her own plan to win, inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet, and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn't through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing's biggest stage! Written by Pixar

Goofs

Natalie Certain says that every week, veteran racers retire or get fired to make room for the next generation racers. However, the season was almost over when more next generation racers started to push out the stock cars, so veteran racers leaving every week is impossible. At the start of the film, the season is nowhere near over yet. In fact, there were at least six more races (which we know because at one point it is announced that Storm has won seven races in total) before the final race, and Certain makes her statement right before this final race. With one race every week, there are plenty of opportunities for cars to retire or be replaced. See more »

Good Sequel! Better than the Cars 2
30 September 2018 | by MynameisromanSee all my reviews

The first Cars movie was awesome and it jumpstarted a lot of rip-offs tv shows for children. talking cars or talking planes everywhere nowadays... cars was the origin and of course there have been two sequels to that movie. while the first sequel felt forced onto the franchise this one here fits perfectly. a great continuation about how his career would develop over the years. he's not a rookie any more... he's not as fast as he used to be... he needs to find out how to solve this... the hints about where the story goes are subtle and reach the right conclusion in the end. and its feels like this might also be the final movie for the franchise but who knows... it a solid 7. if you loved the first one you will love this one as well
