His name is Jackson Storm and he presents the next generation of race cars.
Arriving in movie theaters on June 16, Cars 3 sets a new tone for the franchise as Lightning McQueen struggles to stay on top with more advanced race cars hitting the scene. The latest trailer showcases just how cars have changed with “car treadmills,” wind tunnels, virtual reality and interactive race simulation. It’s an entirely new world for McQueen as he looks to reclaim the crown with the aid of new character Cruz Ramirez.
It appears the movie will touch on a subject many popular athletes endure in their career as they get older. They realize they aren’t as fast or as strong as they used to be, and the younger generation is quickly outperforming them despite years of experience.
