I'm getting a real Days of Thunder vibe from a lot of what I've seen thus far from Disney•Pixar's Cars 3, and I'm digging it. I grew up on racing (a lot of people don't know that), and I'm known for wearing a Cars Radiator Springs racing jacket on a fairly regular basis. That said, Cars 3 is looking good, and this "Extended Sneak-Peek" shows a little more of what's going on, and it's still not even a proper trailer for the film! After making a splash at a special press conference at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit yesterday, you can bet the name "Lightning McQueen" is fresh in the minds of many car-lovers far and wide. An old racer back to the dirt track, and even some figure eight (a Tournament of Destruction, perhaps?) action in the mix - check this out!

When you think of Disney•Pixar's Cars, "realism" probably isn't the first thing that comes to mind - anthropmorphic, living vehicles, and all. That's just what's so slightly jarring, yet intriguing about the first teaser for Cars 3, the long-awaited next chapter in the saga, hitting theaters in the U.S. on June 16, 2017. Much like the uncharted waters that we as a country are about to tread, there is a feeling of uncertainly and unease with this - a massive change from the world we're familiar with... even in Radiator Springs.

Now that Disney is on Netflix... a Look Ahead

Netflix Stream TeamLast week, the day that many were waiting for finally arrived, with some fresh content from The Walt Disney Company making it's way to Netflix. Now, Disney on Netflix is not a new thing (titles have been there before), but per an agreement made a few years back and now officially enacted, the floodgates are slowly beginning to open for recent releases. In fact, all 2015-2016 theatrical releases from Disney will be headed to Netflix at some point in the near future, with Walt Disney Animation Studios' ZOOTOPIA making the big splash, along with other recent fare like THE FINEST HOURS. So what else can we look forward to? A ton of great films from Disney, MARVEL, Pixar, and yes, even Lucasfilm...

Disney•Pixar's FINDING DORY has been swimming into theaters this week, winning the hearts of families with record-breaking crowds turning out for the long-awaited sequel to FINDING NEMO. As with most great cinematic family adventures, kids want to continue the story at home, and as such the folks at Zuru Toys have released a new line of FINDING DORY Robo Fish (reviewed here), including the Coffee Pot Playset. To celebrate the new film, THE ROCK FATHER Magazine and Zuru Toys are giving readers a chance to win the Coffee Pot Playset, which includes a special, water-activated Dory inside said coffee pot.

With Disney•Pixar's FINDING DORY making its way into theaters, the folks at Zuru Toys have a full assortment of fun items from the long-awaited FINDING NEMO sequel swimming into toy stores and toy departments. Among the ones that will be at the top of many kids' wish lists this summer are the FINDING DORY Robo Fish - robotic fish with lifelike action, just as the name implies. Having already been familiar with some of Zuru's aquatic offerings over the years, we were excited when a trio of Robo Fish - Swimming Nemo, Swimming Marlin, and of course, Swimming Dory - arrived at Rock Father HQ for review in our State-of-the-Art Toy Testing Facility™ (in this case, our bathtub) by yours truly, and The Rock Daughters™. With something this unique, words only go so far, so we made a little video... taking the camera underwater to show you these things up-close and in-action! Take a look...
