Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) used to be the king of the track, but now life in the fast lane is a thing of the past. With new racers like Jackson Storm (The Lone Ranger’s Armie Hammer), there isn’t much room left for Lightning. The good news is McQueen never backs down from a challenge, and he teams up with young race technician Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonso) to help get him back to speed.
Cars 3’s premise of Lightning McQueen hitting middle age and literally slowing down should make for a good narrative. McQueen may have met his match with the quicksilver upstart Storm, and it will be interesting see them race to the finish line towards the end of the film.
The first two Cars installments have made over $1 billion at the box office combined, with the original winning a Golden Globe for best animated feature. Brian Fee, a storyboard artist from the first two installments, makes his directing debut with Cars 3.
