Cars 3 will reunite audiences with the many characters from the previous films as Lightning McQueen finds himself being pushed out of the racing world. Though the character named Doc was written out of the second film following the death of Paul Newman, Cars 3 will include the characters voice thanks to unused recordings of the late actor that were taped during his work on the first film. In an interview with Cinemablend, co-producer Andrea Warren explained why the creative team behind the film felt it was important to include Newman’s voice in Cars 3.
“I just think it’s so arresting to hear his voice again, it’s just so meaningful. It was this voice from beyond in some ways. It’s so meaningful for McQueen but I think even just to hear it, you know.”
Did you feel the use of Paul Newman’s voice worked for the film? Share your thoughts below!
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, Cruz Ramirez (voice of Cristela Alonzo), with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns. Proving that No. 95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage! It is directed by Brian Fee (storyboard artist “Cars,” “Cars 2”) and produced by Kevin Reher (“A Bug’s Life,” “La Luna” short).
Directed by Brian Fee, the film stars Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer, Cristela Alonzo, Nathan Fillion, Bonnie Hunt, Tony Shalhoub, Katherine Helmond, Cheech Marin, Paul Dooley, and Larry the Cable Guy.
Cars 3 will be released in theaters on June 16, 2017.
7 Animated Marvel Movies That Should Be Made
There are a lot of great Marvel stories that won’t get live-action adaptations. Now, DC dominates the animated movie side of things, but now that Marvel has Disney behind them they should start developing a few direct-to-video projects.
Sony is releasing an animated Spider-Man movie in 2018 featuring Miles Morales instead of Peter Parker, a smart way to introduce the fun character to a larger audience. Some stories just don’t need live-action adaptions, but that doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be turned into animated features. Modern 2D animation is looking better than ever, and I think the Mouse House need to invest a little bit of time into these endeavors.
So here are my top 7 Marvel stories that should be turned into animated movies. I know some of these characters might be owned by studios other than Disney, so Fox and Sony should be paying attention also. Are yours not on the list?
