Trailer suggests this franchise may have gotten back on (ahem) track.

The one Pixar film I absolutely did not like. Never bothered with the sequel.

CARS was one that I warmed up to very slowly. Mostly it was the voice talent that did it. The film as a whole has some deep "philosophical" flaws -- such as that annoying question of why a world where the lifeforms are cars would have those cars, and their buildings, scaled to human proportions. And why are there door handles?

CARS 2 skidded totally off the track.

CARS 3, based on one trailer, seems to have something of what I finally came to enjoy about the original.

Generally not a fan of this series, and my kids don't seem to be too wild about it, either.  Over the years, interestingly enough, it was CARS 2 that they returned to more often, rather than the original film.  And I have to admit, although Part 1 has the better story (and the added bonus of some of the last roles for both Paul Newman and George Carlin), the sequel did make me laugh out loud a number of times.

My kids are now 12, 10 and almost-7, and I feel that they think the CARS films are now "for babies."  Doesn't look likely that we'll be catching Part 3 in the theaters... though they might still check it out when it reaches Netflix.

I saw the first one and moderatly enjoyed it. Never bothered with the sequel.
Even as a child I would have had asked myself the same questions : why are they so much mimicking the human condition ?
The only answer I can find is that this takes place far away in the future, where human species is long gone, and machines and A.I created for the car industry have taken over the world and adapted to their masters lifestyle, mimicking them unconsciously while following their basic programs (like creating handles).
I'm thinking too much, I know.

I thought of the first as a big budget WHEELIE AND THE CHOPPER BUNCH.
