The teaser titled 'Next Generation' introduces Jackson Storm, a new character who is described as a better, a stronger and a faster racing car.
Lightning McQueen seemingly has to work harder for his next racing competition. The new extended teaser of "Cars 3", titled "Next Generation", offers a look at an aging Lightning McQueen (voiced by Owen Wilson) who has to struggle to join future competition with much younger racing cars.
The first part of the teaser shows a pitch-black lavish car who has been introduced as Jackson Storm. Storm, who will also serve as the movie's bad guy, is featured competing in Daytona 500's festivities. "New generation is coming," reads the line in the teaser. "They're better, stronger, faster."
The scene later switches into a part in which McQueen suffers a serious accident. To get back in the game, McQueen 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. "You will never be the racer you once were," a voiceover says. "You can't turn back the clock, kid. But you can wind it up again."
Besides featuring Jackson Storm, "Cars 3" will also feature another new character named Cruz Ramirez (voiced by Cristela Alonzo). An all yellow, 2017 CRS Sports Coupe, Ramirez is McQueen's fan as well as his trainer.
"Cars 3" is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on June 16. Also starring alongside Wilson in the third installment of the "Cars" movie series are Armie Hammer, Larry the Cable Guy and Bonnie Hunt.
