My children very patiently counted the days for Disney/Pixar’s Cars 2 to open in theaters last Summer. They were saying it was their favorite movie before they’d even seen it! Now they are ecstatic because Cars 2 is on Blu-ray/DVD and they’ve already watched it twice!
If you haven’t had the chance to see it yet, I think you will be amazed by its incredible detail. When watching there are moments when I forget it is an animated movie. Every scene is so richly drawn it is impossible to notice everything on the first go around. One thing to note is it is probably most appropriate for kids about 7 years and older, the plot is fast paced and more complex than the original Cars.
I really like having the movie at home, because each time I watch it, I discover new things. Director John Lasseter said in an interview “My wife…always said don’t make a movie for the first time someone sees it. Make it for the one hundreth time a parent has to suffer through it on video…” and I think they did a great job with this one.
I´m very happy to be able to give away one Blu-ray/DVD to one lucky Mama Latina Tips reader. I will tell you how to participate in a minute, here is the official synopsis:
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.
