In the new trailer for Cars 3 that was released today, a larger focus is put on Lightning McQueen’s new ‘rival’ – Jackson Storm.

High-tech, competitive, and – most importantly – fast, Jackson Storm represents the ‘new generation’ of cars that is threatening Lightning’s career, overtaking him on the racetrack, and overshadowing him in the public eye. Once “faster than fast, quicker than quick”, Lightning isn’t used to being left behind, but he’s not ready to give up just yet.
“I decide when I’m done.”
This trailer is just as gritty and tense as the last, but exhibits more of the great humour that Pixar always pulls off so well. It also showcases some of the beautiful scenery we’re familiar with from the original Cars, in addition to new stunning backdrops. Revisiting these characters and settings again, it’s amazing to see how far the technology has come. Lightning, on the other hand, is much less excited by this prospect of ‘new technology’…
Cars 3 will be released in US theatres June 16th!
