Have you picked up a copy of Disney’s Cars 2 yet? If not this is an absolute must for this year’s Christmas shopping list! You might remember my postings about the release of this DVD well we finally got to sit down as a family and watch it and it was definitely loved by all!
Star racecar Lightning McQueen and the incomparable tow truck Mater take their friendship to exciting new places in “Cars 2” when they head overseas to compete in the first-ever World Grand Prix to determine the world’s fastest car. But the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own: international espionage. Mater finds himself torn between assisting Lightning McQueen in the high-profile race and towing the line in a top-secret mission orchestrated by master British super spy Finn McMissile and the stunning rookie field spy Holley Shiftwell. Mater’s action-packed journey leads him on an explosive chase through the streets of Japan and Europe, trailed by his friends and watched by the whole world. The fast-paced fun includes a colorful new all-car cast, complete with menacing villains and international racing competitors.
I don’t have too much hope for most sequels but this was the best Disney one I’ve seen yet! It kept both the kids and adults entertained and laughing. My three year old even made it through the entire movie without wandering away to find something else to do, which is generally what she does during movies unless they are less than half an hour.
My husband and I still hold Mater as our favorite character because of his wit that clearly is great for kids but also makes adults laugh. My 6 and 7 year old daughter’s really liked the new character Holly (the girl spy car). My 7 year old daughter said she felt like Holly was a superhero that showed girls that they could do anything and she wishes she could fly just like Holly.
