Pixar's Cars 3 Trailer

"From this moment everything will change…" Disney has unveiled the first teaser trailer for Pixar's Cars 3, which is playing in front of Disney's Moana opening in theaters this week. Cars 3 is the latest sequel in the Cars series, which is extremely popular with kids, but generally disliked by adults. The racecar Lightning McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson, is back again and this time he must prove he's still relevant when a "new generation of blazing-fast racers" threatens to push him out. I had heard this teaser trailer might be different, and it definitely is. Don't skip this without giving it a watch, as you might be more interested than you're expecting to be. It almost feels like this is a teaser trailer for a new Christopher Nolan movie. I dig it.

Here's the first official teaser trailer (+ poster) for Disney-Pixar's Cars 3, direct from YouTube:

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 with her own plan to win, 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! Pixar's Cars 3 is directed by newcomer Brian Fee, a storyboard artist and animator (for Pixar) making his directorial debut. The screenplay is written by Daniel Gerson. Disney will release Pixar's Cars 3 in theaters everywhere starting on June 16th, 2017 next summer. First impression?

How they managed to make 3 movies of this blows my mind. Saying that, the concept art for it was pretty amazeballs.

TRANSFORMERS, SMURFS, CHIPMUNKS. Those are the true abhorrent sequels.

I prefer watching a Cars sequel than a Fast and furious sequel.

Fair enough, I can't watch F&F either really, the sequels on that are really bizarre.

Carpola on Nov 21, 2016


I thought this was for sure going to be a transition into being a coach film, but if it really does follow the synopsis it will be a little more interesting. Or not.

That was a pretty dark teaser for a Pixar film. Definitely interested to see what direction they take this one.

David Diaz on Nov 21, 2016


well, in all honesty, they probably had no choice *but* to go in that particular direction.

I never watched first two and probably won't do that in the future. I can't find anything interesting about it. Which must not mean that those are bad. Just not my thing ...

They're bad.

You are probably right. Anyway, I have a lot of other, more interesting films to see ... Cheers ...

So...Cars 3 is more of a worthy sequel than the Incredibles 2? The Cars franchise is ranked at the bottom for the Pixar films according to me. Seems like they want to sell more toys I guess....

For me Cars is actually in the top 3 Pixar films with Toy Story and Finding Nemo. I liked the story and characters. However I do have a strong dislike of Cars 2. That was dumb. Mater was likable in the first one and then just plain nauseating in the 2nd. He was veering into Jar-Jar territory. With that one so boring, I am surprised that they are going for a 3rd one. I'm guessing since John Lasseter, the head of Disney animation, personally directed the first 2, I suppose it shouldn't be surprising. He pushed for it the most I'm sure. But I hope, for me at least, they get away completely from anything to do with the 2nd one because it was a waste.

Me before watching this teaser: "God, do we need another 'Cars' film... Me after actually watching this trailer: ...oh, my God..."

It is like is McQueen gonna die in cars 3 or will he live?
