It was a reveal that clearly removed the film’s heroine from a famous family lineage, making it clear that heroes don’t need a specific last name to be one of the most important figures in a galaxy far, far away.

One that Will Byers and the rest of the Stranger Things crew can access because Eleven, with all her raw, psychic power, accidentally ripped a hole in the space-time continuum. It’s definitely possible.

But are the cars in Cars really just automobiles? A new theory suggests that there is more to these amorphized vehicles than meets the eye (and we are not talking about Transformers).
