Disney’s Cars movie is one of my many favorite movies and still remember when the first one came out in 2006 and then the 2nd one in 2011. I am so excited that they decided to make a 3rd one set to hit theaters on June 16th. Being that we are a car family as my father-in-law, husband, and son drag races this movie is one we can relate to and enjoy.
One thing to mention is that Lightning McQueen has a new design in Cars 3 and I had the chance to check it out in person at the Detroit Auto Show back in January. The design is sharp with great detail and possibly might improve his speed in the movie.
Joining Lighting McQueen, Mater and the rest of the gang are 2 new characters to introduce.
Jackson Storm voiced by Armie Hammer 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.
Cruz Ramirez voiced by Cristela Alonzo 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?
Check out the trailers below and be sure to see Cars 3 in theaters June 16!
