GUYS!!! It is finally here! Disney Pixar's CARS 3 is in theaters TODAY! I know that a lot of people don't show up to movie theaters early anymore because of all of the commercials BUT...you must arrive early for Cars 3 because you just have to see the new Pixar short, LOU. It's super adorable and heart-warming...but isn't everything Pixar does?
I always have a hard time talking about movies and shorts in blog posts because I hate to spoil anything for my readers. This story is just too cute and too sweet not to tell - even if you didn't plan on going to see Cars 3 this weekend, I think you WILL after you hear this!
LOU is about a bully in the schoolyard, who goes around stealing everyone's toys during recess. When the kids go back into school, LOU decides to teach the bully a lesson...but not in the way you'd think.
LOU realizes that the bully once had something taken from him, and he knows where it is...
We watch as LOU makes contact with the boy and shows him his lost toy, and the most hilarious scene follows. The personality and character shown in this chase scene made me laugh so hard, it was so original and creative! Eventually the boy returns all of the items that other children have lost, or he's taken from them, and you can see this little boy change before your very eyes.
He ceases being a bully and becomes a regular old kid again...and it made me tear up a bit!
Bullying is SUCH an issue today, and as a parent, I know that bullies aren't born, they're created. Of course that doesn't excuse it at all, but I love that LOU showed that they can be reformed...
You can get an idea of how touching LOU is by watching this brand new clip that was just released!
If you haven't learned about the story behind Cars 3 yet, take a look at this clip where they introduce a new character, Storm Jackson!
