ABOUT THE MOVIE
Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves.

Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage! “Cars 3” cruises into theatres on June 16, 2017.
