Cars: A Love Affair from Route 66 to NASCAR
I was invited to Pixar today to see a screening of their new movie “Cars”. America’s love affair with the automobile is a great backdrop for a story that will appeal to gearheads and animation fans alike. John Lasseter returns to the Director’s chair for this Pixar film, and pours his soul into every part of this movie. It’s no secret that he loves cars.
I think Pixar has really tapped in to the emotional ties many of us have to our automotive friends. It’s easy to imagine a car with a heart and soul of it’s own, and Pixar’s renowned story telling prowess pulls us all the way into a world made up of cars. Excellent voice acting by actors such as Owen Wilson, Paul Newman, and Cheech Marin bring great humor and believability to the story as well.
