New Cars 3 TV Spot takes Lightning McQueen back to his roots

A new Cars 3 TV spot titled “Thomasville” takes Lightning McQueen back to stock car racing’s short track roots. Are his best days behind him or can he regain his form and win again. Pixar’s Cars 3 promises a return to form with the storytelling with emotional depth that we’re used to from Pixar.

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.
