The Cars movies are now just drowned with merchandise to the point that the franchise is not really enjoyable. A third Cars movie is not welcome by me, but I accept its inevitability.

^ Agreed, the sequel ruined the series for me an is just a cash-in to sell more toys. At least Pixar isn't behind the monstrosity that is Planes...

Pixar isn't behind it. But keep in mind that both Pixar and Disney, by virtue of being ruled and ran by the same people, share the same corporate culture. Neither are innocent.

Cars 3 looks like it'll come out 2018, or 2019. That's what Lasseter said in July. :arrow:

I'm sure people will enjoy it, but they'll be skeptical about going to see it due to the general consensus about Cars 2.

One thing is Finn McMissile will have to be seen, even though they might want to tone down the spy/secret agent stuff. I'll see at even it it's spy-heavy, and probably love it, but I think in order for Cars 3 to lure people to seeing it, they may need a different angle (aside from those of us who did find Cars 2 pleasant.)

I think Finn McMissile was meant to be a new Doc Hudson sort of character, only a kind of mentor for Mater rather than Lightning McQueen. If so that didn't exactly work out as smoothly.

Anyway I'm looking forward to it. The trouble I expect is going to be convincing others to go see it. But we'll worry about that when the time comes.

Cars 3 seemed to get back to the roots of the Cars franchise a little more to me. Maybe not so much the Route 66 part (which was part of what first captured me into the franchise), but deff the racing and the heart of the franchise.

We got back to the racing, where Cars2 had racing but, let's be honest, not a lot of it. The first Cars included two entire races plus some history of racing with Doc and the dirt track. Cars 2 just had the races as something to get the gang out of the country and basically as something for Light to do while Mater was off having his adventure. Cars 3 got back to the racing, and we got to see Light and his racing friends having fun and everything.

We also got some history again. In the first Cars, the history was Route 66-centric. It was about the history of Radiator Springs, and Route 66 and the interstate system. Cars 2 sorta skipped out on the history aspect of the franchise, in favor of more world building (which, don't get me wrong, I LOVED the international world building). But Cars 3 got back into the history, in this case the history of the Piston Cup when they got to Thomasville.

Plus! Basically everyone in Radiator Springs got lines!! (Except Red, but you know, Red) Even Doc got lines! And Sally got an actual part again!! The Radiator Springs family was back and looking after each other again. Plus we got to meet Light's Racing Gang (Bobby & Cal) and Doc's old racing gang (More Doc Backstory?!?).

Plus, I love the Cars architecture (which is why I still love Cars 2, despite it's flaws), like the Rust-Eze Racing Center designed like a racetrack, the Florida racetrack open to the sea was really cool, and the old Thomasville track?? Looks EXACTLY like old dirt tracks!!

So ya, basically I LOVED Cars 3, it seems the more natural sequel of Cars than Cars 2 did, Cars 2 seems like an extra long Tall Tale.
Im a Pixarteer!
