Race Home with Cars 3 on Blu-Ray, the Perfect Holiday Gift
Disney Cars was the first movie that my son cling to as a toddler. We watched the movie on repeat for years, always clutching a Lightning McQueen car in his hands. It’s amazing to see how much Cars has grown with my son over the past 9 years. now full circle with Cars 3. I got to see a glimpse of that sweet innocent toddler boy when we got to see this classic story come back to life on the big screen this summer. And now? I’ve got one happy 9-year old, coming back to his “old friends” once again.
Having Cars 3 as a part of our Disney movie collection solidifies my son’s eternal love for McQueen, Mater, Hudson Hornet and now some new friends like Cruz Ramirez. We make a point every year to stuff my kids’ stockings with a movie. And I’m so glad Cars 3 is now available on November 7th to bring home for the holidays. A perfect holiday gift for your Disney lover, Cars 3 on Blu-Ray makes a great edition to your family movie night.
