Trying to rank all 23 Pixar films (most of which are available to stream on Disney+Cars 3 (2017) in order of quality is like trying to rank your children by how much you love them. None of these movies is bad, but when you’ve made 22 films, one of them has to be No. 21 and one of them has to be No. 1
Cars 3 (2017)
Early reviews of Cars 3 have praised the latest installment in the Lightning McQueen saga for, essentially, not being Cars 2, the only Pixar film to receive a “rotten” rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
