Pixar’s latest animated feature Cars 3 has had a weird marketing campaign, to say the least. While Cars and its sequel Cars 2 traded in Pixar’s distinct sense of drama in favor of slapstick comedy and nonchalant fun, Cars 3 looks to be a much darker, somber film that ruminates on Lightning McQueen’s existence as a vehicle, rather than a product. Weird, right? Well, the latest TV spot for the latest film in the Cars franchise has dropped, and you can check it out below.
What were your thoughts on the new TV spot? Sound off in the comments below and let us know!

You can read the movie’s synopsis below:
After being trounced in a race by upstart newcomer Jackson Storm (Armie Hammer), everyone begins to wonder if Lighting McQueen (Owen Wilson) should retire. But Lightning isn’t ready to throw in the towel yet, and with the help of another rookie – Cruz Ramirez (Cristela Alonzo) – the old dog is going to learn some new tricks and attempt a comeback in the Florida 500.
The Walt Disney Animation Library, Ranked From Worst To Best
Disney had made an unconventional “franchise” out of remaking its animated classics as live-action blockbusters. Combined with their Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars stables, it has ensured the company’s continued domination in the film sphere. Maleficent, Cinderella, and The Jungle Book were at the forefront of that charge the last few years. Now, with Beauty and the Beast hitting theaters (our review here), now is a great time to look back at Disney’s amazing animated catalog and how they stack up against each other.
Disney has had a lot of animated films released theatrically or direct-to-video, sometimes in collaboration with other studios. This list specifically focuses on those from the Walt Disney Animation department, so sorry Brave Little Toaster fans, of which I’m one. No Pixar flicks either, but fans of that studio are in luck, as we ranked their films last summer. You can check that list out below.
I haven’t seen Saludos Amigos, Make Music Mine, Song of the South, Melody Time, Fun and Fancy Free, & The Three Caballeros, hence their exclusion. Naturally, we’ll most likely disagree about the specific ordering. Let’s think of it as a conversation starter. I’d love to hear what you guys think in the comments!
