While Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” doesn’t officially open in theaters until Friday, June 16, 400 Disney Parks Blog readers were treated to an early advance screening this past weekend.
In “Cars 3,” the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers and finds himself suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage. Disney•Pixar’s “Cars 3” is directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“), produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren (“LAVA” short).
Aside from an early preview of the film – and it’s accompanying short, “Lou,” – our guests were also welcomed by a surprise guest – one of the greats of motor racing history, Emerson Fittipaldi. Emerson, a guest of the Disney Parks Blog, stopped in to surprise the audience and happily posed for a few photos with guests after the film.

Omg, how cool. I so need to get on your advance screening mailing list.
