Film review: Disney’s Cars 3 in cinemas on 14 July 2017

Jul 12 2017


Disney's Cars 3 is possibly the best Cars film released so far. My 10 year old son Diego has seen the animations Cars and Cars 2 at least 1000 times.

He still is a big fan of Lightning McQueen and his Cars collection is huge and almost intact despite having being played a lot over the past eight years. Diego is now a grown up 10 almost 11 year old boy but still interested in this sort of movies.

My favourite ones have to be My London: Colour Draw, Explore and My New York: Colour, Draw, Explore by Majel van der Muelen.
