New Cars 3 plot details have been revealed. It looks like Lightning McQueen is going to be dealing with more than just the big crash shown in the teaser.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cars 3 director Brian Fee opened up about the movie’s narrative. Apparently, the crash has put McQueen into a midlife crisis in an era of mobile millennials.
“McQueen is not the young hotshot anymore, the kid he was back then in Cars 1,” said Fee. “He’s in the middle of his life, and as an athlete, that’s getting up there. You have your whole life ahead of you, yet your career is starting to show its age.”
Putting fuel on the fire is a new, younger rival named Jackson Storm. This tech-savvy, entitled racer is voiced by Armie Hammer from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

“He thinks the world is his. He’s taking over. He’s owed it,” Fee said. “He thinks the future of racing and the high-tech ways they train and what they can do means they’re taking the sport to a new level, and the older guys had their day, and it’s done, and they have no place in the future of racing.”
Helping McQueen get his groove back is another young millennial named Cruz Ramirez. She will be voiced by Cristela Alonzo from The View.
We can safely say that the Cars 3 plot sounds much more deserving than Cars 2. With Cars 3 releasing June 16, we don’t have much longer until we find out.
