Things are looking very bad for Lightning McQueen and the rest of Pixar’s Cars. The deeply depressing first teaser trailer giving way to further details of series favourite McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson)’s fall from grace. New racers on the circuit point to the unthinkable possibility that Ol’ Lightning may have run out of steam. Cue the dramatic hoist on which Pixar are hanging their latest film.
Today’s extended look at Cars 3 shows us a little more of the latest film to arrive from the Emeryville filmmakers. New cars means new voices, and we’ve been waiting to hear more from Cristela Alonzo (the canary yellow Cruz Ramirez) and Armie Hammer (voicing the neon blue Jackson Storm). The ‘Lightning’ and ‘Storm’ names are a neat nod to the battle that will take place in the latest film from Pixar, and the first from director Brian Fee.
Cars 3 Extended Sneak Peek
Cars 3 hits UK cinemas 14th July.
Meet Cruz Ramirez
Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team’s talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it?
Meet Jackson Storm
Jackson Storm is fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.
Meet the all new Lightning McQueen
Lightning McQueen is world champion—a modern-day racing legend who’s riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood. Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport—but the confidence that got him there. Determine
