Conor Hilton joins the podcast to help review the new Pixar film, "Cars 3."
In this episode, we'll hear a presentation about finding the story for "Cars 3" with writers Mike Rich, Bob Peterson and Kiel Murray and story supervisor Scott Morse. They'll discuss, among other things, social barrier-breaking real racers who inspired the story, the background of Cruz Ramirez, and how the team dug into the audio archives for Paul Newman and Tom Magliozzi.
In this episode, I share my reaction to the footage of "Cars 3" that I saw a couple weeks ago, and we dive into the film with director Brian Fee, producer Kevin Reher and co-producer Andrea Warren.
Ben from Everything Pixar and Dan the Pixar Fan join the podcast to give a report on all the Pixar news that came from this year's D23 Expo event.
Character voice and Route 66 consultant Michael Wallis told WGBZ radio on August 17, 2013 that the film will be again set on historical California highways: "We did 'Cars 2,' which I'm glad to skip over because I didn't particularly care for it, but [for] 'Cars 3' we're coming back to the road. And we're coming back to 66 and to 99, the sixes upside down -- that's the road that runs right through central California."
