Disney Pixar “Cars 2″ Blu-ray And DVD Combo Pack Available In Stores Today

November 1, 2011 • By

Disney/Pixar’s animated sequel movie “Cars 2” is available in stores today! Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment sent us a copy of the Blu-ray and DVD Combo Pack to review, and we can’t recommend it enough! To begin with, the movie is a great follow up to “Cars.” There were only so many story lines that could take place in Radiator Springs, where the Cars live, but in “Cars 2″ the Disney/Pixar team brought the Cars literally around the world. We loved that this movie focuses on Mater, rather than Lightning McQueen, who got to be the star of the initial “Cars” movie. We love Mater and Lightning as friends and it’s fun that Disney/Pixar has another dynamic duo that kids can look up to!

Here are the formats you can bring “Cars 2″ home on:

- Blu-ray Combo Pack
- Blu-ray 3D
- DVD
- Movie Download

We really enjoyed watching Disney/Pixar’s “Cars 2.” We thought the movie was a great continuation of the original “Cars” story and we thought that the movie looked very real, if of course cars could actually talk in real life! You could tell the animators paid a lot of attention to detail and it made the movie watching experience well worth it!

Let us know if you pick up “Cars 2″ on Blu-ray, DVD or Movie Download – and tell us what you think!
