About “Cars 3”

It has been more than ten years since the first “Cars” film was released, but Lightning McQueen remains an iconic character today. While Lightning is still the same self-assured, determined and fun-loving race car audiences fell in love with, his confidence is being tested by the new cars on the track.

Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary champion finds himself sud-denly pushed out of the sport he loves. Suddenly, he finds his dominance in the sport, as well as the confidence that got him there–threatened by younger, faster cars. Determined to get back into pole position, #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life.

“Cars 3” features Owen Wilson (“Shanghai Noon”) as the voice of Lightning McQueen. Cristela Alonzo (“The Angry Birds Movie”) voices tech-savvy trainer Cruz Ramirez, who tries to help Lightning return to greatness, and Armie Hammer (“The Social Network”) lends his voice to next-gen racer Jackson Storm, whose high-tech speed leaves Lightning McQueen behind.

Directed by Brian Fee, produced by Kevin Reher and co-produced by Andrea Warren, “Cars 3” is executive produced by John Lasseter, who directed the first two films in the franchise.
