We had notification from Disney of this brand new extended look at Cars 3 which just aired during the CFP National Championship Game.

The original teaser ran for 49 seconds this Cars 3 Extended Trailer is 90 seconds. There is new footage but it does start much the same. We think there should have been a further 5 seconds, at least on the internet. This way it would have matched the cars number, #95! Disney seemed to have missed a trick here!

Also you may wish to enjoy the car character profiles ahead of the June 16th 2017 release:-

The previous Cars filmed have a impressive track record with awards. This includes Cars winning, and Cars 2 being nominated, for a Golden Globe for best animated feature films. On the income side Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011) have taken in more than $1 billion in combined worldwide box office.

Cars 3 Official Information


Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out of the sport he loves.

To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician. That tech is Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), how has her own plan to win. Plus there is the inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns.

Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage!

The animation is directed by Brian Fee, who was storyboard artist for Cars and Cars 2. Cars 3 is produced by Kevin Reher who worked on A Bug’s Life and the La Luna short.
