Owen Wilson and his vehicular counterpart, Lightning McQueen, are back in an all-new Cars story. In this 3rd movie, he'll be joined by newcomers Armie Hammer and Cristela Alonzo. Come inside to get under the hood of the vehicles they'll be playing!
Cars 3 comes out this summer but before we hit the motor speedway, Disney-Pixar revealed the cars that will be opposite Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson). They didn't just reveal them with words, though. Nay, they gave us show-style videos to get an idea of what the new sports cars will be like.
Kicking off the duo of new castmates is well-known actor, and man with the greatest name ever, Armie Hammer who will be playing devilish sports car, Jackson Storm.
Storm is described as fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.
Next up is actress and comedian Cristela Alonzo, who you'll remember her voice from The Angry Birds Movie, will be playing Cruz Ramirez who is described as the following:
Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team's talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it?
That's not all Disney-Pixar revealed today, though. As a matter of fact, they also gave us a video of the new and improved Lightning McQueen! Take a look!
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 (voice of Cristela Alonzo), 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! Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“) and produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short),
