WATCH: Lightning McQueen passes out at ‘Cars 3’ teaser trailer

/ 09:06 AM November 22, 2016

“Cars” has grown up, and “Cars 3” has matured into a drag racing film.


Disney Pixar dropped the first teaser trailer for “Cars 3” on Monday, and to the awe of young-at-heart Disney fans, the trailer signals a “mature” and “all-grown-up” struggle for Lighting McQueen, voiced by Owen Wilson.

The vivacious and jolly red racing superstar ends up in a wreckage, with the last scene of the trailer displaying how the car will collapse on the ground. It shows that McQueen will be screeched out of his racing passion by cutting-edge and blazing automobiles. In order to be back on its feet, McQueen will seek help from a skilled female technician named Cruz Ramirez, who will steer McQueen’s strength and agility once again. As noticed, the grinning faces of the cars were not featured in the teaser trailer.


The trailer ends with the imminent caption, “From this moment, everything will change.”

“Cruz Ramirez is trying to figure out how this old dog can learn some new tricks,” director Brian Fee said in an interview with USA Today last May. “(McQueen) is not an old man, but he’s one of the older cars on the circuit with new rookies coming in. People start to wonder and ask when he might retire.”

Other cars who will join McQueen in the Radiator springs are Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt) and Ramone (Cheech Marin).

The first two “Cars” films, released in 2006 and 2011, grossed $1 billion (P49.75 billion in today’s exchange rate) globally, E! News reported. The third “Cars” installment will start racing on June 16, 2017.  Gianna Francesca Catolico
