Thanks to social media, I have seen a fair amount of scepticism towards ‘Cars 3’. And yeah, I won’t lie, when I first saw the initial poster I was a little sceptical too. However, after watching this trailer most – if not, all – of my scepticism and snide remarks have disappeared. ‘Cars 3’ looks cool.
Judging from the trailer itself, it looks like the movie ‘Cars’ should have been all along. Not a spy movie nor a fish-out-of-water tale, no; it looks like a movie about racing, which I love. It also seems to have some interesting metaphors about technology and millennials. And to address the elephant in the room, yes, it does look “dark” and “gritty” (which, honestly, might turn out to be what ‘Cars’ needed…maybe).
I’ll stop talking now though because at the end of the day, it’s a Disney/Pixar movie and people will probably see it no matter what. I just hope it’s as cool as this trailer makes it out to be.
