With big studio movie production quality from every facet (writing, animation, sound, voice acting) this feels like an extension of the original film in every way. Larry the Cable Guy reprises his role as Mater and Keith Ferguson steps into the role of Lightning McQueen. Don't worry that Owen Wilson didn't return (for whatever reason). You (and more importantly your kids) won't miss him. Ferguson's Lightning is nearly flawless and you probably wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't read the credits (or this review). The only reason I wouldn't give this DVD an "A+" for grade is that it clocks in at a very spritely 38 minutes. It'll leave you wishing it went on for twice as long, but that's ultimately a reflection of it's high production quality.
If you or your kids are Cars-a-holics, I couldn't recommend this spin-off DVD enough.
Wish they would come out with new tall tales! Even I enjoy watching them.
This is available on Netflix streaming or available to purchase on Amazon video (for less than 2 dollars most of the time for standard definition). I should have just bought it on Amazon video instead of getting the discs because it is a lot cheaper and I don't have to worry about losing the discs or them getting beaten up by my kids.
My biggest gripe is that this is $20 on a 30 minute show. I'd give it 4 stars easily if this were <$13, but $20 for a half-hour is unreasonable. The total run time of over an hour includes a ton of "making of" type documentaries. Not the stuff my 3 kids 5-years-old and under enjoy watching. Which brings me to my second gripe...
I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to easily restart the CARTOONS in my car's DVD player. Once the documentaries start, it will only back up to the chapter beginning the docs. There is also no easy way to get back to the first chapter. Returning to the main menu and selecting "Play All" resumes the documentaries. So you cannot back up, cannot start over. What the heck?! Rather than trying to select a specific chapter from the sub-menu (and distracting ourselves from the road even longer), we end up ejecting the stupid DVD and re-loading it. This is probably the worst-structured Disney DVD I own, and I own a cabinet full.
