In the wake of a fiery crash, Lightning McQueen plans his comeback as he’s urged to give up racing and become a corporate shill.
Disney had rolled out a new trailer for Pixar Animation Studios’ Cars 3, the third installment in the feature film franchise directed by Cars and Cars 2 storyboard artist Brian Fee.
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!
The new trailer sees Lightning McQueen planning his comeback in the wake of a fiery crash as he’s urged to give up racing and become a corporate shill:
Cars 3 features the return of Larry the Cable Guy as Mater, Bonnie Hunt as Sally Carrera, and Cheech Marin as Ramone. There’s also some brand-new characters, including Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer) and Cruz Ramirez. They are joined by Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion and Lea DeLaria, alongside NASCAR’s Jeff Gordon, Richard Petty, Chase Elliott, Ryan Blaney, Daniel Suárez and Bubba Wallace.
Produced by Kevin Reher (A Bug’s Life, La Luna short) and co-produced by Andrea Warren (LAVA short), Cars 3 cruises into theaters on June 16, 2017.
