One of the new stars in Cars 3 is Cruz Ramirez. She is a next generation trainer who is looking to take Lightning McQueen to the next level. What's really to love about her though is a girl who is strong, smart, and very real. Ramirez faces her own insecurities during her training of McQueen, but in the end she also learns that with encouragement from friends you can achieve even your wildest dreams. McQueen also finds inspiration from friends and a mentor of his old crew chief, Doc Hudson. The educator in me really enjoys how much these movies pay tribute to the "teachers" along the way and Cars 3 is certainly no exception.
Without offering any spoilers, I can say that this movie is endearing, inspiring, and fun for the whole family. Kids will love the laughs and the fast paced racing, while grown-ups will enjoy the heart of each character and may even find themselves relating to what it means to be getting older in a society that is rapidly changing around them. Be sure to check it out to kick off your summer season!
