The third installment of the Cars franchise, Cars 3, has entered production and moving along smoothly. We are writing about the upcoming movie of Pixar’s famous Cars series of animated films. According to reports, the next film will feature new characters, and one of them is called Cruz Ramirez.
The role of Cruz Ramirez will be a young, Hispanic, female race car, which will be yellow, and it will instruct Lightning McQueen in his racing career.

Brian Fee, the director of Cars 3, explained for USA Today that the new character will strive to “teach an old dog some new tricks.”

Mr. Fee was part of the team that created the original film. The director of the first two Cars movies, John Lasseter, is now the Chief Creative Officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, as well as executive producer of Cars 3.

The report mentions the plot of Cars 3, where the main character - Lightning McQueen, is no longer a rookie, and is now one of the older cars on the circuit.

The film will portray his struggle with the aspiring rookies on the Piston Cup. One of his rivals will be called Jackson Storm, and will be a promising competitor that will attempt to push out the old generation of racers from the championship.

According to the director of Cars 3, the production is far underway, even though some voice actors have not been announced publicly yet. However, the animation for the most important scenes has already been completed. Currently, some elements are in the paint phase, while few are still in the blueprint stage.

The story of Cars 3 is set to remain in America and visit historical racing sites across the country. Some characters from the first Cars flick will also be present in the third movie of the series, including Mater the tow-truck, Sally Carrera, and the auto-body shop owner Ramone.
