“Cars 3” has opened in movie theaters across the country and Latinos cannot get enough of a new character called Cruz Ramirez. Without revealing any spoilers, Ramirez is the car tasked with helping Lightning McQueen train before McQueen races a rookie at the Florida 500. It’s clear that she is a major character in the movie based on sheer excitement of several Latinos on Twitter have expressed.

“Cars 3” is here and Latinos everywhere are absolutely loving Cristela Alonzo as Cruz Ramirez.

Ramirez is more than just a side character. The Latina lead character is the coach and motivator to get Lightning McQueen up to snuff in order to take on a new car on the scene.

Families are gushing over how much they love seeing themselves represented in the movie.

¡Dale!

This young Latina got excited about a car-centric movie that was “for boys.”

Some kids are even asking their parents for Ramirez toys so they can play with cars, too.

? ? ?

But it is more than just the character that is getting some serious virtual love right now.

Fans are absolutely gushing over Cristela Alonzo and showering her with praise for bringing Ramirez to life.

The powerful representation brought many of the audiences to tears.

Ramirez is quickly becoming the feminist heroine of the summer.

Alonzo’s performance is being lauded as a portrayal of what life is like as a woman in a male-dominated field.

Some adults are taking their love of Ramirez a little too far and the little ones are feeling the pain.

Tbh, this would be me if I had a little one right now.

It seems like something so simple but a leading Latina in a cartoon movie about cars is really giving Latinos something to look up to.

You know, because representation in media matters and this kind of representation has been long anticipated.

Alex Cambert, who was a special co-host on “Good Day L.A.,” began the interview by attempting to introduce Coronel and said that two have known each other for at least four years. He could hardly get the words out. Host Liz Habib put her arm around Cambert to help him get through the moment.

Cambert spoke about the tough experiences the Coronel had to go through, including losing his father when he was a child, working at a boxing gym to help out his family financially, and even contemplating suicide.

“I am so proud of you, papa,” Cambert said to the young singer.

In a Facebook post, Cambert posted this message about his personal interview with Coronel.

“This got emotional today on Good Day LA. The show was gracious enough to allow me to invite Luis Coronel and he was gracious enough to accept. This was part of his first major English language interview. He’s a remarkable young man and I’m proud of how well he’s handled all his success.”

In a backstage interview at “Good Day L.A.,” Coronel was able to speak in depth about his heartbreaking situation.

“It’s unbelievable because at those moments in my life when I was living through that, I really thought that I’d be alone,” Coronel said on “Good Day L.A.” “I thought that my life was going to be lonely.”

With so many emotions running high, Coronel barely had the chance to speak about his latest gig: he’s opening for Prince Royce on a tour that kicks off on June 29 in Texas.
