A Behind The Scenes Look At The Red Carpet
Cars 3 in in theaters June 16.
Before it opens there needs to be a world premier.
With a world premiere there needs to be a red carpet!
It is the appropriate thing to do to celebrate all the hard work that went into making this fabulous film. Don’t you think?
Have you ever been behind to scenes of a red carpet or have you only seen them on television or in the magazines? I was part of the press junket for Cars 3 and LOU and I was invited to walk the red carpet. I thought you would like to see what it is like behind the scenes and velvet ropes.
When we first arrived on the red carpet, there were larger than life movie posters set up. A large movie poster was just begging to be posed by and have photos snapped! So everyone was taking turns, snapping photos of each other with the star characters of the film.
From left to right: Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, Cruz Ramirez voiced by Christela Alonzo and Jackson Storm voiced by Armie Hammer.
Pro tip: if you are going to walk the red carpet, have a photo buddy with you do you are sure to get the shots you want. I had such a great time walking the red carpet with Tania from Lola Lambchops.
Balloon Stilt Walkers
Sprinkled up and down the red carpet were roaming entertainers. There were several of these super creative, balloon stilt walkers. They were telling one liners, posing for selfies and adding one more layer of magic to the already glittering red carpet.
There were also spray paint tattoo artists inking up the red carpet walkers with Cars 3 tattoos. All the kids were in line to get one or two. Even some of the parents were rolling up their sleeves get a little Ka-Chow! on their bicep.
It was a long red carpet with lots of photo opportunity. No one was walking away with out snapping a photo at every opportunity. Myself included!
Disney Pins – Doc Hudson
My family and I are big Disney Pin traders! I found a Doc Hudson pin in our collection and wore it on my romper from Rent The Runway for the world premier. Doc Hudson is voiced by Paul Newman, who passed away in 2008 of lung cancer. This pin was a nod to him as well as my Father In Law who passed away from lung cancer in January.
Celebrity Talent On The Red Carpet
This red carpet had an interview pit (I don’t know if that is the technical term) where the national and international film and television crews are set up to interview the directors, voice talent and special guests of Cars 3. This was not a thoroughfare for the rest of the red carpet.
See the black wall with the Cars 3 logo on the left of this photo? That where the red carpet took a turn to go around the interview. This way the interviews can be conducted with out being photobombed by the rest of the crowd.

Just a few of the fabulous #Cars3Event bloggers:
Share A Coke With Cruz
Popcorn, sodas and water were provided for the world premier of Cars 3 and I found it just a little magical that I looked down at the table of sodas and found Cruz as the bottle in front of me. What are the chances of this happening? I am sure Natalie Certain would have the numbers for me.
Disneyland and Cars Land
After the world premier of Cars 3 and LOU, we were shuttled over Disneyland and Cars Land. They had Cars Land shut down for the afterparty. There is nothing more magical than having Cars Land to yourself, full of the talented people who created the iconic movie that inspired Cars land.

There was a minimal wait for Lightning Racers so I rode it about five times. How is that for a once in a lifetime expereince?!
I did a Facebook Live of one of the rides. Here it is:

I was taking a break from the walking, eating and riding to do some social media post at The Cozy Cone. (They were serving some amazing churros and mac and cheese cones!) Dave Mullins, Director of LOU, and his family was finishing up a conversation and caught me out of the corner of his eye and greeted me by name. He had spoken with hundreds of people that day and I was shocked that he knew my name and could identify me in the dim lights of Radiator Springs. But these twitter interactions might have something to do with it:

The Disney Photopass photographers were out taking photos, and I can’t NOT resist a Disney Photopass photographer. I am usually behind the camera so it was nice to be IN some photos.
Here are some of my favorites:
Last minute I decided I needed a lightening ring to complete my outfit. So, I 3D printed one. A few coats of nail polish later it was good to go!
Got to love organic fuel!
Got to show some love to Doc Hudson, the Fabulous Hudson Hornet.
These ladies made the evening so much fun!
Mater. Like Tuh-mater…. with out the Tuh.
It was a fabulous evening full of magical memories!
