The Premiere of Cars 2 – It’s Almost Here

by ChristieO

CARS2Rev2Christie here…

Show of hands: who has been waiting for years for Disney Pixar’s Cars 2 to come out?!

(Ooh! Ooh! Me! Me!)

It was my son’s first animated film and I loved it so much because of its friendly message of friendship and doing the right thing, I really think it was the perfect first animated film for him to see.

Years later, it is still one of our favorites and we’ve been waiting with bated collected breath as a family for the sequel to come out.

And guess what?! It’s almost here!

Fortunately for me, Janice and Susan couldn’t make the trip out to LA for the premiere and they asked me to cover it for them. So I’ll be heading out there to catch the premiere next week and interview Lightning McQueen himself (Owen Wilson), Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) and the rest of the gang — and there are a lot of new faces.

What Do You Want To Ask Lightning McQueen?

Over the next few days I’ll be posting some new video and facts about these movies, but for now, I ask you, the readers of 5 Minutes for Mom, do you have any burning questions for Lightning McQueen, Owen Wilson, or the film’s director John Lasseter?  

I’ll ask them one of your questions, link to you, and post it in the recap after the trip.

While I’m there, I will also visit the Disney Animation Studio and view the new animated film, Winnie the Pooh, which is set to hit theaters soon too.

The Help

I’m thrilled I’ll be seeing a screening of the Dreamworks film, “The Help“, based on the New York Times Bestseller. I am reading the book right now and I love it.
