Yeah, nine is probably a bit old for the Cars stuff I think.
But to be fair, my boy (and my 6-year old daughter) both had the same reaction to Cars 3 too. It’s not a good movie.
Coming back to Gar’s initial point, I think it demonstrates that they can keep shifting merchandise no matter how bad the movies are.
(Given that, it’s particularly grating that a plot point in Cars 3 revolves around the owner of a car company trying to cynically shift a load of Lightning McQueen merchandise.)
