To be honest, it's the most interesting animated movie concept to come from Disney themselves in practically decades. Probably would have been better with pastiches of video game characters instead of a license/advert-fest, but it looks like they aren't really the focus anyway.
If Pixar had done this in place of Toy Story, I couldn't really see anyone kicking up a fuss over it.
Cars is made way more fun when you realise it's actually about a post-apocalyptic world in which we piled so much electronic crap into our cars that they literally became sentient and killed every human on the planet.
We also [censored]ed around with genetically modifying flies to be cars. 'Cos we're nuts like that.
Basically, it's the creepiest [censored]ing [censored] about a bunch of genocidal machines who treat everything like they're a Terminator Care Bear.
It's by the director of "Lisa's Substitute" and "Marge versus the Monorail", so I'm interested in seeing what he comes up with. Hopefully it will be something more substantial than just a stream of fan-pleasing gaming references!
Cars wasn't amazing but every other Pixar film has been. Obvious comments aside, the script for this seems a bit dire. Trailer did nothing of note besides "oh look actual videogame villains". Animation was gorgeous though.
