John Lasseter has teased that the film is a very emotional story and a little bit more akin to Cars 1.
The film will focus on McQueen's relationship and memory of Doc Hudson.
The Cars 3 teaser trailer suggests that this film has a much darker tone than its predecessors. As a result, a controversy began whether or not to allow young McQueen fans to watch this film. However, it left Cars critics unexpectedly anticipating this film.
Cars 3 will feature McQueen with his signature Cars look and bring back familiar characters from the original's Radiator Springs, including tow-truck Mater (Larry the Cable Guy), girlfriend Sally Carrera (Bonnie Hunt) and auto-body shop owner Ramone (Cheech Marin).
All three Cars films were released the same year as a Pirates of the Caribbean film. Cars (2006) came out the same year as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest (2006), Cars 2 (2011) was released the same year as Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), and Cars 3 (2017) will be released the same year as Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017).
Director Brian Fee has mentioned that the film is a love letter to racing and the American way and it is inspired by the Americana you see traveling through the South where every small town has a dirt track.
The film's premise mirrors the first film, in that McQueen is now an old racer (like The King) and Jackson Storm is a young rookie about to overtake him (just as McQueen had in the first film.)
This is the third film of the Cars series, which is the second Pixar series to ever have a third installment, the other being Toy Story.
The second Pixar sequel due within the coming years, followed by The Incredibles 2 (2018) and Toy Story 4 (2019).
Brian Fee's directorial debut.
A tie-in video game has been announced to accompany the film's release. It will be developed by Avalanche Software, which was shut down by Disney in 2016, but was acquired and revived by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
