Disney has released a new trailer for Pixar's Cars 3. The Cars franchise isn't my favorite thing that Pixar has done, but this third chapter in the story actually looks interesting. This latest trailer offers new footage and more insight into the story. It actually looks like a really good and exciting film, and I never thought I'd say that about a Cars movie.
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of 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, 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!
Last week we were introduced to a couple of the new generation of cars that come into Lightning McQueen's life. One of them is a villain-type character named Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), and the other is a character that comes in to help McQueen. That character's name is Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo). When previously talking about the film, director Brian Fee said:
“McQueen is not the young hotshot anymore, the kid he was back then in Cars 1. He’s in the middle of his life, and as an athlete, that’s getting up there. You have your whole life ahead of you, yet your career is starting to show its age. He’s looking in the mirror and realizing, ‘I’m 40 years old,’ and dealing with the fact that the thing that you love more than anything else, you might not be able to do forever.”
Cars 3 opens in theaters on June 16th, 2017.
