According to an interview USA Today recently conducted with director, Brian Fee, the Cars 3 plot will center around an older Lightning McQueen training to race in the Daytona 500. We now know that two new lead characters will be introduced: Cruz Ramirez, Lightning’s younger trainer and Jackson Storm, a rookie racer that leads a group of upstarts looking to push old-timers like Lightning into retirement. Owen Wilson will return for a third time in the lead role. Larry the Cable Guy, Bonnie Hunt and Cheech Marin also return in their iconic supporting roles. No news so far as to who will be voicing Ramirez or Storm.

I am founder and editor of DisneyNews.us and DisneyEverything.com My passion for all things Disney goes pretty far back but was deepened by two semi-recent developments:1) The birth of my son (who is now 6 years old and can't get enough Disney); and 2) Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm/Star Wars (did I mention I was a super Star Wars geek?)I recently came to the realization that I spent a significant portion of my day reading articles about Disney and watching it with my son, so it only made sense that I would start sharing some of what I read and see and building a little community around it.
