If you’ve been following along on my social media, I’ve been counting down the days until I head to California for the CARS 3 Event! What all does this entail? I’m glad you asked, because I can’t wait to share the details! We get to watch CARS 3, walk the red carpet at the Cars 3 Premiere, go to the after party in Cars Land in Disney California Adventure Park, interview some of the talent from CARS 3, and do all kinds of research in Disneyland! Thank you, Disney, for providing airfare and accommodations for this racing good time! You thought I was going to say Ka-chow, didn’t you? 😉
CARS 3 Event
First of all, me + 24 super cool bloggers are headed to Disneyland to check out all the Summer of Heroes awesomeness! And yes, I am bringing my massive Captain America backpack. It’s Cap and Summer of Heroes, how can I not? Included is the new attraction, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mission: BREAKOUT which replaced Tower of Terror. I’ve heard it’s incredible! I’ve seen video, and it looks phenomenal! Will I ride it? Probably not. Why? Because I’d like to live to interview the amazing cast of Cars 3!!! (And really I’m just being dramatic. I don’t like drops, but I still want to ride it so badly!)
CARS 3 Event Interview List
Check out this interview list. Don’t faint. I almost did, but I tried to keep it together for the sake of the children
- Owen Wilson (voice of “Lightning McQueen”)
- Kerry Washington (voice of “Natalie Certain”)
- Cristela Alonzo (voice of “Cruz Ramirez”)
- Armie Hammer (voice of “Jackson Storm”)
- Nathan Fillion (voice of “Sterling”)
- Larry the Cable Guy (voice of “Mater”)
- Lea DeLaria (voice of “Miss Fritter”)
- Isiah Whitlock Jr. (voice of “River Scott”)
- Director Brian Fee
- Producer Kevin Reher
LOU presentation with Director Dave Mullins & Producer Dana Murray
So I may be a little biased, but I’m super excited to interview Cristela Alonzo! She a power house Latina, hilarious, and you know I have to give a fist bump for all the females out there. I’m the mother of 5 girls! Cruz may be my new favorite CARS character.
Buuuuut, hold the phone. Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) will be in the house. My Scandal-loving Gladiator heart is exploding.
I’ve been trying to find something to wear on the Red Carpet, and I haven’t had much luck. So I headed to Rent the Runway. Have you heard of it? You can rent fancy designer dresses for a fraction of the cost and then send it back. There’s a storefront in Georgetown, so I headed over there to check it out. It’s a really cool concept! I’m kind of stumped, because I want to look nice, but the after party is in Cars Land, so I also want to be comfortable enough to ride Radiator Springs Racers over and over! This may be my only red carpet experience, so I really want to be happy with what I’m wearing.
If you have any questions for this incredible cast, please send them my way! Tweet me, comment below, put the on my Facebook page. Now’s your chance to get all your questions answered by the amazing talent from CARS 3!
Summer of Heroes
As soon as Summer of Heroes in Disneyland was announced I started plotting my plan on how to get out to California to see everything! Then surprise, I received this awesome invitation! I’ve seen some of the Marvel characters before like Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Hawkeye, because I’ve run the runDisney Super Heroes Half Marathon. Plus I always find a way to see my bae, Captain America.
I’m especially excited for the new additions of Star-Lord, Gamora, and Groot! Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 was amazing! I’ve already made a list of some exclusive Summer of Heroes snacks, too. Hey, food is important; it’s necessary for survival. I will be sure to try anything y’all want me to. It’s all in the name of research.
And I can’t wait to see the Pixar Animation Studios’ short film LOU which debuts in theaters in front of CARS 3. One of my friends said they liked it even more than “Lava.” I don’t know. We’ll see about that.
Needless to say, I’m ecstatic for CARS 3 Event, and I hope you’ll follow along June 9-11! If you have any questions!
CARS 3 opens in theaters June 16!!
