Special thanks to Marvel, Disney and ABC for sending me on this all expense paid trip to cover THOR RAGNAROK, “The Mayor” on ABC, CARS 3 Blu-Ray release, Disney Junior’s “Vampirina” and littleBits’ STAR WARS Droid Inventor Kits. All opinions are my own. There are affiliate links in this blog post.
Today is THE DAY!!!!!!! CARS 3 can finally race home to your own home theater TODAY! I had the privilege of seeing and covering CARS 3 during the #Cars3Event this past June. I couldn’t wait for my children to see it and when they did they fell in love with Lightning, Mater and Cruz, the new fast girl. Since we got the BluRay, my son has been soaking up all of the bonus features. He’s nine-years-old and adores learning how about how Pixar movies are made. It’s been really fun to actually have someone watch the Bonus Features who appreciates it. Read my review of the film if you haven’t seen it yet.
When you buy the CARS 3 BluRay you’ll get these extra bonus features:
