Pixar has released the first official trailer for Cars 3. Lightning McQueen has now become old and is pushed aside by a new generation of race cars. To get back into the game, McQueen now has to take help from a young race technician who has her own plan to win.
While the earlier promos for the film had a more adult and mature tone, this one has the more familiar “family film” vibe to it. However, the central theme of a comeback story is still there, just that it has a way lighter tone now with a little more of Mater. Whether the film will finally have that more darker vibe or continue with the usual tone of the series is something I’ll love to see.
