Cars 3 Trailer

"I'm sorry. Your racing days are coming to an end…" Disney & Pixar have unveiled the new official trailer for Cars 3, the next sequel from Pixar (before we get an original music from the animation company later this year). Pixar's Cars 3 continues the story following racecar Lightning McQueen, who is now being beaten by younger, more high tech racers. Like any good "old guy" sports movie, he has to go back and work from the ground up again, including spending some time in a Monster Truck arena. Owen Wilson returns as McQueen, with a fun voice cast including Armie Hammer, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Katherine Helmond, and Paul Dooley. I know everyone loves to hate these movies, but there's actually a charming side to them. This looks like it may actually be worth seeing. Pixar movies are always better than the trailers.

Here's the third official trailer (+ international poster) for Pixar's Cars 3, direct from Pixar's YouTube:

You can still watch the first teaser trailer for Pixar's Cars 3 here, as well as the second official trailer here.

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 this summer. How's it look now?

Interesting direction.

The irony is a bit thick in this trailer with Lighting McQueen not wanting to "sellout" yet this franchise is pretty much the definition of that. Prediction: Lighting wins. There. Just saved us all some money. Also, I'm REALLY getting irritated about the sequels with Pixar and Disney. Out of all the Imagineers and creativity, no one has an original thought?!? Sequels to your most successful franchises are the only thing you're capable of these days? Has the well run dry?!?!? /rantend

It seems that people express more their creativity when the resources are limited. The more resource they have, the more lazy they become. ( Peter Jackson, George Lucas, Pixar, etc.)

The jokes didn't work on this one, but my son will like it and that's good enough for me...

Looks okay. Rocky-type story. My only note is that the woman trainer sounds like Dory, (to me) and that might confuse the kiddies...

The more I watch trailers for this, I see less and less reasons for seeing it ...

It will be on par with the good dinosaur. It's not a bad or good thing per se. it's a kiddie movie.

Which is somehow good. The only problem I have with all that is Hollywood repeating cliches. Which makes kid follow those cliches ...

I agree. I was 4 or 5 when i watched the re release of 1953 Peter Pan. What a great experience. It stuck with me till this day. I don't think I would have reacted the same as a 4 year old boy if I've watched the (generic) Good dinosaur. Soooo forgettable.
