In Case You Missed ItI know I’m in the minority, but I love Cars. It’s one of my favorite Pixar movies. (Cars 2…yeah….not so much…terrible sequel.) But I have to say, I am super excited to see Cars 3 this weekend! I saw the preview at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and it certainly seems to have the feel of the first film. What about you? Are you going to head to the theater this weekend?

This week, see why geese caused trouble at Disneyland, what Julie Andrews thinks of the upcoming Mary Poppins sequel, what new dessert people are using their minds over at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, and more.

    Yes I enjoy Cars – such a variety of characters. I may not catch the new one in the theater though. Love the Cars section at Art of Animation. >> So someone really called the police and fire department over goose poop? And the article had to stress twice “and no one was injured” What a world we live in.
