The trailer for Cars 3 seems to indicate that, after the critical the franchise took for Cars 2, things are moving back to character driven storytelling.

Age is catching up to Lightning McQueen as a new pretender to his racing throne, Jackson Storm, is shattering McQueen’s lap times and he’s told his racing days are coming to a close.

But without racing, who Lightning McQueen?

Cars 3 is in theaters on June 16th.

On Christmas Eve, Sam and his best buddy Khalid dress up as Santa to steal as much as they can from a department store. But Sam gets cornered by some children and has to tell them a story, the story of Aladdin – his version, at least.

Now he’s a superstar of the big screen and, as Bashful Benjamin J. Grimm would put it, ‘The idol o’ millions.’ Also, Prat went old school for the event in a three-piece suit that practically screamed Old Hollywood.

More pictures follow.
