In the news:
Who can forget the when Disney and Pixar released the first teaser trailer for the film? The horrific images of McQueen flying through the air ruffled a few fans’ feathers. The trailer played before screenings of Disney’s Moana back in November, where numerous patrons noted that young children in the theater began to cry upon seeing McQueen’s lifeless, smoking chassis flip through the air. Well now we get a much deeper glimpse at McQueen’s nasty wreck – and it is grim.
“We wanted to basically come right out of the gate and say this is probably not the Cars movie you’re expecting, because the Cars movie we’re making is probably not the Cars movie you’re expecting.”
— Director Brian Fee
In followup trailers, Disney made it a little more apparent that McQueen would be fine by the end of the movie, but little was said about the actual plot other than McQueen finding himself. This new trailer seems to confirm that Cars 3 will return to its racing roots, which was sorely missed in Cars 2.
The film is scheduled to be released on June 16, 2017, alongside with Pixar’s latest short, Lou – a Pixar short about a lost-and-found box and the unseen monster within.
Cars 3 Synopsis:
After being blindsided in a race by upstart newcomer Jackson Storm (voiced by Armie Hammer), everyone begins to wonder if Lighting McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) should retire. But Lightning isn’t ready to throw in the towel yet, and with the help of another young race technician – Cruz Ramirez (voiced by 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 – this old dog is going to learn some new tricks and attempt a comeback in the Florida 500.
Lightning McQueen sets out to prove to a new generation of racers that he’s still the best race car in the world.
