The signs are even clearer that Lightning McQueen will go through the ringer in Cars 3.
Pixar shared the poster for the upcoming movie on Tuesday. The image resembles the teaser’s main one: Lightning’s red car flies through the air after an accident, described with the same tagline flashed in the trailer. “From this moment, everything will change,” the poster reads.
Earlier this year, Pixar boss John Lasseter indicated the third installment will be sentimental, akin to the first movie. “It’s a very emotional story. It’s a little bit more akin to Cars 1, where you get into a deep emotion with [Lightning McQueen],” Lasseter told EW. “It’s really a special story. It’s very emotional and his relationship with Doc Hudson, and his memory of Doc Hudson.”
