The new trailer for Disney and Pixar’s Cars 3 dropped last week and, it has our hero Lightning McQueen on the fast track to becoming outdated and obsolete. A high tech, trail-blazing opponent Jackson Storm is the newest and fastest car on the track but, what does that mean for Lightning McQueen?
The two have a pretty intense rivalry going on, right from the moment they meet and, that ultimately leads to Lightning McQueen being involved in a wreck. But is he down for the count? Heck no!
“I decide when I’m done,” says McQueen in the trailer.
Though not everyone believes he can come back and beat the newer, younger, more technologically advanced racers, McQueen is not going to let anything stop him!
McQueen’s admirable determination throughout the new trailer really escalates the film to a next level for Disney and Pixar. Cars 3 really seems like a classic underdog story with a new, magical twist which only Disney can provide. I’ve never felt so much empathy and connection with an animated car character before but, this trailer really allows adults to be able to relate. The little ones will enjoy the classic Disney and Pixar silliness but the overall message definitely hits home with the adults.
The official description of Cars 3 from Disney and Pixar’s YouTube page says:
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!
The film features vocal talents from Owen Wilson, Kerry Washington, Nathan Fillion, Bonnie Hunt and more!
We can’t wait to see more of this film!! Check out the new trailer below for Cars 3. Are you adding this to your “must see” list?
