Meet the new characters in Cars 3! Cars 3 will be racing into movie theaters on June 16th, and new characters were just announced! I have a 4 year old son who’s super excited to see the latest installment, especially after seeing a preview. To say he’s a fan would be an understatement. We own Cars and Cars 2 on DVD because my son is a big fan of the series. His favorite saying for a long time was “Ka-Chow!” and while his favorite character is Lightning McQueen, he likes all the other characters like Tow Mater and Sarge. And one of the reasons we enjoy visiting Disneyland? Cars Land!
I’m glad that we’ll get the opportunity to meet new characters in Cars 3. With names like Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez, you know there should be plenty of personality. You can read more about them below as well as watch videos of each character.
But first, a little more about Lightning McQueen.
Lightning McQueen is world champion—a modern-day racing legend who’s riding high with five Piston-Cup wins under his hood. Suddenly, he finds himself faced with a new generation of racers who threaten not only his dominance in the sport—but the confidence that got him there. Determined to get back to the pole position, the #95 must decide if his love for racing is enough to fuel the comeback of his life.
New Characters in Cars 3: Cruz Ramirez and Jackson Storm
Cruz Ramirez is a sunny-but-fierce unconventional trainer at the Rust-eze Racing Center. She expertly arms the team’s talented rookies with cutting-edge tools to tear up the track—but she nearly stalls when her longtime idol Lightning McQueen shows up. While she’d love to help him find his way back to the top, she knows the competition is faster than ever, and victory is all about speed—or is it?
Jackson Storm is fast, sleek and ready to race. A frontrunner in the next generation of racers, Storm’s quiet confidence and cocky demeanor are off-putting—but his unmatched speed threatens to redefine the sport. Trained on high-tech simulators that are programmed to perfect technique and maximize velocity, Jackson Storm is literally built to be unbeatable—and he knows it.
Start revving up your engines! Cars 3 looks like it’s going to be a wild ride!
