Disney•Pixar has released not only a new teaser trailer for Cars 3, which teases a dark moment of change for the upcoming third installment of the hit animated Cars franchise, but a brand-new poster as well that also highlights the same moment, a fiery crash involving the beloved, anthropomorphic race car Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson).
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen 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.
Slated for theaters on June 16, 2017, Cars 3 is directed by Brian Fee from a script by Robert L. Baird (Monsters University, Big Hero 6) and Daniel Gerson (Monsters, Inc., Monsters University, Big Hero 6).
