GALWAY CHILDREN can look forward to being among the first in Ireland to see Cars 2 which is among the Disney films being shown at this year’s Galway Film Fleadh. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oFTfAdauCOo
Cars 2 will be shown in The Eye Cinema on Sunday July 10 at 2pm. In this latest instalment of the animated automobile adventure, Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson ) and tow truck Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy ) head overseas to compete in the first World Grand Prix to determine which is the world’s fastest car.
However the road to the championship is filled with plenty of potholes, detours, and hilarious surprises when Mater gets caught up in an intriguing adventure of his own - international espionage.
As special treat, the screening of Cars 2 will be proceeded by the world premiere of Cars Toons, five short cartoons featuring mini adventures of Mater.
Other Disney films to look forward to at the fleadh are African Cats, a epic documentary on lions and cheetahs narrated by Samuel L Jackson.
The story features Mara, a lion cub who strives to grow up with her mother’s strength, spirit and wisdom; Sita, a fearless cheetah and single mother of five mischievous newborns; and Fang, a proud leader of the pride who must defend his family from a rival lion.
See it in the Galway Omniplex on Saturday July 9 at 12.30pm.
Another family nature film, The Crimson Wing: Mystery of the Flamingos, will be shown in the Omniplex on Friday July 8 at 12.30pm. The film follows the birth of a tiny flamingo hatchling, and the perils and fortunes of her life in Lake Natron, northern Tanzania.
