'Cars 3' teaser previews major Lightning McQueen crash

Pixar has released the first teaser for Cars 3, and it's a foreboding preview.

The brief video clip begins with glimpses of yet another race, until Lightning McQueen starts to waver. It then shows the four-wheeled character flipping on the track in slow-motion, with sparks and debris all around.

Brian Fee directs the threequel from a script by Daniel Gerson. Owen Wilson is reprising his voice role as the spiffy red hor-rod, Lightning McQueen.

Cars 3 is in U.S. theaters on June 16, 2017.
