With Cars 3 being released digitally on October 24th and on Blu-ray on November 7th, we’re excited to see all the deleted scenes and extras and get an insight into the movie’s production process.
Pixar have already treated us to one particular deleted scene – “The Boogie Woogie” – which features Cruz Ramirez and Lightning McQueen training on the beach. You can watch it below!

Cars 3 director Brian Fee talks us through the deleted ‘beach training’ scene, explaining that in this version, Cruz was much more experienced. In the final cut, Cruz ended up struggling to drive on the sandy terrain, skidding about all over the place, but this alternate deleted scene shows her driving faster than the Lightning McQueen right from the get-go. Her little ‘good luck charm’ routine that she likes to perform before a race is also incredibly endearing. Who knew these deleted scenes could make Cruz Ramirez even more likeable?
