It appears Lightning McQueen isn’t going down without a fight.
The first Cars 3 teaser trailer was surprisingly dark, hinting that McQueen would fall from the ranks of racing and give way to a new age of race cars. Some believed early on that Cars 3 would be about McQueen retiring and passing the torch, but the latest extended-look trailer proves otherwise.
In fact, the iconic character has no plans of calling it quits and newcomer Cruz Ramirez will be McQueen’s trainer to take on new rival Jackson Storm.
Cars 3 arrives in theaters on June 16 and it feels like the movie will be a traditional Disney / Pixar film after all.
