Cars 3 is the third film in the Cars series, which will be released in theaters June 16, 2017.

Synopsis

"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 with her own plan to win, 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!"

Cast

Unused recordings of Paul Newman as Doc Hudson will be included.[17][18]

Production

At the Disney stockholder meeting on March 18, 2014, Disney CEO Bob Iger announced that Pixar had begun pre-production on Cars 3.[19][20]

Michael Wallis said on August 17, 2013 that the film would include Route 99 in California,[21] while John Lasseter said during the Tokyo International Film Festival that a Citroën 2CV will appear in the film as a reference to Hayao Miyazaki's movie Lupin the 3rd: The Castle of Cagliostro in a form of an old.[22]

According to the 2015 São Paulo Disney Expo, the film's release was to be in 2018.[23] On July 20, 2015, while being interviewed by Autoweek, Lasseter stated that the film's release should be summer 2018 or 2019.[24] On October 8, 2015, it was confirmed to be June 16, 2017.[25]

The first concept images were released by USA Today on May 30, 2016. Director Brian Fee also gave some info on the characters and plot.

"Cruz Ramirez is trying to figure out how this old dog can learn some new tricks," says Fee.

"Think of where he'd be in his career now in real time," says Fee. "(McQueen) is not an old man, but he's one of the older cars on the circuit with new rookies coming in. People start to wonder and ask when he might retire."[4]

On June 8, 2016, Lasseter revealed that the film will include a different tone as well as a tribute to the first film's character Doc Hudson.[26]

On November 21, the first teaser trailer for the film was released and it showed McQueen about to have a horrific crash, like the one that forced the end of Doc Hudson's career.

On January 9, Disney released the first trailer during the College Football Playoffs.

On February 1, 2017, it was announced that the Pixar short to be shown with the film is Lou.[27]

On February 26, another trailer was released during the Daytona 500.

On April 25, a teaser was released saying that a full trailer was set to be released, which it was the following day.[28][29]

On April 30, a one-minute trailer was shown at the 2017 Radio Disney Music Awards.[30]

On May 7, a Japanese trailer was released, showing new footage.[31]

On May 10, a new trailer was released, showing new footage.

Soundtrack

The song "Ride" by ZZ Ward and Gary Clark Jr. will be featured in the soundtrack alongside mixes of rock/pop songs and score by Randy Newman.[32] For the film, there will be two soundtracks: one containing songs, and the other consisting of the film's score. Both will be released on the same day as the film.[33]

Video game

Avalanche Software and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment are set to develop a game adapted from the film,[34] [35] with release dates of June 13, 2017 in North America[36] and July 14 in Europe and Australia.[37] [35]
