Lightening McQueen Is Joined by New Members of the Racing High-Tech World in CARS 3
Cruz Ramirez and Jackson Storm
In Theaters June 16, 2017
CARS 3 is ever so promising! We love Owen Wilson as the voice of Lightening McQueen! He is being joined by Cristela Alonzo and Armie Hammer as very unconventional trainer Cruz Ramirez and next-ten racer Jackson Storm.
Here’s what Brian Fee, Director of CARS 3 said about Cristela Alonzo and Armie Hammer.
Cristela is full of optimism and a positive energy that I think really comes through in Cruz’s personality. And of course, she’s a hilarious comedian, so that doesn’t hurt either.
Armie brought a great combination of intensity and charm to the role of Jackson Storm. His charisma helped create a character you really love to hate.
2006 Custom-built Piston Cup Racer
Lightning McQueen is world champion – a modern-day racing legend who’s riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood. Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport – but the confidence that got him there. Determined to get back to the pole position, the #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life.
The Next Gen Cars – WOW!
Owen Wilson (“The Royal Tenenbaums,” upcoming “Wonder”) returns to the racetrack as the voice of the champion. Wilson stars in the upcoming Woody Harrelson-directed live film “Lost in London.”
2017 Custom-built ‘Next-Gen’
Jackson Storm is fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.
Meet Jackson Storm
Armie Hammer (“Birth of a Nation”) was tapped as the voice of Jackson Storm. Hammer recently appeared in Tom Ford’s “Nocturnal Animals.” He will next be seen starring in “Free Fire,” directed by Ben Wheatley; “Final Portrait,” directed by Stanley Tucci; and “Call Me by Your Name,” directed by Luca Guadagnino.
2017 CRS Sports Coupe
Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team’s talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it?
My Senior Project!
Cristela Alonzo (“The Angry Birds Movie”) was called on to help bring the character to life. Alonzo’s debut stand-up special for Netflix, “Lower Classy,” which debuts on Jan. 24, 2017, showcases the comedian’s life as a the daughter of an immigrant, touching on important issues like social class, breaking the glass ceiling and how she can’t get the hang of Zumba.
Directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2“) and Produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short), CARS 3 cruises into theaters on June 16th!
