LOS ANGELES, Nov. 21 (UPI) -- Cars 3 released an explosive first teaser trailer on Monday.
The dramatic preview sees Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) race against a number of other cars before crashing and burning on the track.
Cars 3 is a sequel to Cars (2006) and Cars 2 (2011), which earned a combined $1.02 billion at the box office. The movie is directed by Brian Fee, who served as a storyboard animator on the first two films.
Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt and Cheech Marin will also return to voice Mater, Sally Carrera and Ramone, respectively. The movie will follow McQueen as he attempts to make his racing comeback with the help of race technician Cruz Ramirez.
"Cruz Ramirez is trying to figure out how this old dog can learn some new tricks," Fee told USA Today in May.
"Think of where he'd be in his career now in real time. [McQueen] is not an old man, but he's one of the older cars on the circuit with new rookies coming in. People start to wonder and ask when he might retire," he added.
"Everyone can relate to feeling like someone is at their heels, that they might be a little outdated in something they used to be very good at, feeling an expiration date. And knowing you need someone to help you get a second chance," Fee said.
Disney and Pixar have yet to announce who will voice Cruz in the new sequel. Cars 3 opens in theaters June 16, 2017.
