Cars 3 trailer explores rivalry between Lightning McQueen and new competition

When they say your time is up, it’s time to make your move. In Pixar Cars 3 mega-star Lightning McQueen faces what might be his most difficult foe ever, obsolescence. Faced with newer model cars that can race longer and faster, McQueen must look for outside help and inside himself to find a way to win again at racing.

Watch “Rivalry,” the new trailer for Cars 3 from Pixar here:

Some good topical jokes in there, including a dig at Virtual Reality. But I like that it doesn’t give too much of the final film away. Is there anyone in your household racing to go see Cars 3?

About the film:

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, 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!

Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011) took in more than $1 billion combined at the box office. Cars won a golden globe for best animated feature and was nominated for a best animated feature Oscar.
