Disney-Pixar has just unveiled a new trailer for the upcoming third installment of the Cars franchise. The trailer clocks in at a mere 1 minute, but the CG animated franchise is so popular that it doesn’t really deserve much introduction or backstory. What the trailer provides is a glimpse into what Cars 3 is all about. It seems to be an apt representation of the Cars 3 franchise at this point: protagonist Lightning McQueen is showing his age, and while most of his fans and detractors believe that he’s had a good run and it’s time to retire, the racing superstar wants a chance to go out on a high note.
You can check out the trailer below:
The official synopsis:
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!
Cars 3 premieres this coming June 16, to theaters near you.
