Disney and Pixar have released a new trailer for Cars 3, which gives a more straightforward look at the film than previous previews. Aging race car Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) needs to train for one last big race against a younger competitor (Armie Hammer) before retiring. It’s a familiar story, but if done well can be rousing, even if it’s about cartoon cars.
Directed by Brian Fee, Cars 3 will be in theaters on June 16th.
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!
