California writes in to respond to our comments about the Frozen 2 teaser trailer being more dramatic and mature, noting that "the first Cars 3 teaser was similar (Lightning McQueen in a slow motion car wreck) — but ultimately the movie's tone was similar to the other Cars movies.  Just an observation my wife had.
