We’ve had Disney Princesses and Fairies for years so Disney Cars seemed a brilliant idea for the boys (and girls) and didn’t Disney do it well! What better than fast cars, superb animation and a fantastic set of characters.
This fast paced comedy adventure hit the road and the big screen on 26th May 2006. Nominated for two Academy Awards it won the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Feature Film and was released on an eagerly awaited DVD in late 2006 – just in time for Christmas. The merchandise for this movie broke retail records with an estimated billion dollars worth of sales.
The plot is fun, fast paced and exciting and brings to life lots of popular characters. Lightning McQueen is a hotshot race car enroute to the big Piston Cup Championship in California when he detours unexpectedly through the Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. Here he meets Sally, Doc Hudson and Mater who show him there’s more important things to life then fame and trophies.
A new fan base was soon established and kids and adults of all ages loved the drama, action and new technical achievements featured in the movie. Roll on the next installment Disney!
