Our hero Lightning McQueen has his racing title challenged by rookie Jackson Storm. Will speed or experience win the world title for this epic race?
From the creative minds behind Finding Nemo and Inside Out, Pixar’s Cars franchise returns for its third instalment. Owen Wilson is back as the world-famous Lightning McQueen, but things have changed since his last adventure -- he's no longer the fastest in the world, with age catching up to him. The racing game has changed as well, with cars having evolved to high-tech machines that no longer train on roads but in simulators.
After a crash, McQueen is at risk of losing his title, and there’s a new car on the scene: Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer). In order to beat Storm, McQueen must learn from the best car simulator trainer, a strong female car named Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo). She's willing to teach McQueen everything she knows to get him the world title, but as the training progresses, it becomes clear McQueen can teach her about the world outside of a simulator, and the joy of driving on the open road.
Jackson Storm seems unbeatable, but can McQueen use the wise words of Doc Hudson to show him how real cars race?
