Disney has just released an extended look at “Cars 3” that recently aired during the Daytona 500.
I am definitely getting a Rocky vibe from this movie.
- Lightning! Lightning! Lightning! Sounds just like Rocky! Rocky! Rocky!
- I’m guessing Lightning goes up against an an opponent that he cant beat. Similar to Clubber Lang or Ivan Drago.
- He becomes down and out. Similar to all Rocky movies.
- Reflects on the words of his mentor/trainer, Doc Hudson. Similar to Mickey.
- Training montage. Opponent uses advanced technology to train, Lightning trains outdoors. Similar to Rocky IV and Rocky running on the beach in Rocky III.
- Lightning comes back to win against insurmountable odds. Like most Rocky movies.
- Or Lightning can be training a new racer, like Rocky V. Just hope that is the only similarity with Rocky V.
“Cars 3 opens June 16th.
