Final ‘Cars 3’ Trailer Teases Lightning McQueen’s Last Chance

While Pixar’s animated world of anthropomorphic automobiles may very well continue on past Cars 3, there’s a whole lot of finality going on in the final trailer for Pixar’s latest chapter in the racing saga. “One new turn…One more dream…One last chance” reads the title cards in the new trailer for the sequel, in which Owen Wilson’s Lightning McQueen suffers a crippling accident that threatens to end his career. I swear this movie is still totally for kids.

But it’s also for grown-ups, too. As our own editor-in-chief Matt Singer learned during a recent visit to Pixar’s studios, Cars 3 is indeed a little darker — or at least more thematically thoughtful — than the previous installments (which isn’t to say it’s not funny or even fun), but that should make it more appealing to the older crowd.

Here’s the official synopsis for Cars 3, which introduces new car-characters voiced by Armie Hammer and Cristela Alonzo:

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, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus 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!

Cars 3 also features the voices of Nathan Fillion, Larry the Cable Guy, Chris Cooper, Bonnie Hunt and Kerry Washington, and hits theaters on June 16.
