OK, we know a lot of you didn’t like Cars 2 (we did for what it’s worth) but it’s pretty much universally agreed that the first movie is pretty darned good.
And fun. And family friendly.
And while we have no doubt Pixar will deliver a family friendly third outing, this trailer for Cars 3 is pretty dark.
Check it out and tell us what you think.
That animation, though…
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 is directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“) and produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short).
Disney/Pixar’s Cars 3 opens in US theatres in 3D June 16, 2017.
