Disney and Pixar has released yet another new trailer for the upcoming third installment into the Cars franchise, this time switching things up and going with much more of a heroic vibe rather than the dark and grittier take the last few trailers have showed. The story of the sequel follows an older Lightning McQueen as he is blindsided and pushed out of the sport he loves by a new generation of racers. To prove that #95 isn’t through yet, he will need the help of an eager young race technician and the inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet to get back in the game.
While I’m not a fan of releasing nearly a full handful of trailers before the one month out date, at least they changed it up and gave the following trailer a completely different flair compared to the others. And I like what I’m seeing. Could I possibly have seen the entire movie by now? I’d say there’s a pretty good shot, but the trailer have given me some confidence in that Disney and Pixar may have finally gotten this franchise right. In what’s more than likely the final entry into this series, having the story focus on a comeback story in an extremely smart thing to do. Because if there’s one thing we all love about sports, it’s a good comeback.
Check out the new trailer below and after doing so, let me know what you think in the comments. Are you a Cars fan? Have the trailers gotten you interested? Will you be giving it a chance? Cars 3 rides into theaters on June 16th and stars the voices of Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer, and Bonni Hunt.
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!
