To this day, Cars has been a must-see for any animation fan for the past two decades. Fans are clamoring for Cars 4, as seen by the number of posts online calling for it. Despite the popularity of the Cars franchise, is a fourth installment likely to be released soon?
The first Cars movie showed a talking race car named Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) gets trapped in a desert town on his route to a race and forced to must do community service in order to escape. The overconfident racing machine finally falls in love with a little town after having spent some time among its inhabitants, learning some modesty along the way. Cars weren’t as well-received as Toy Story or Monsters, Inc., but it was still a tremendous hit. In addition, Paul Newman and Michael Keaton appeared in the film.
Lightning McQueen gained a worldwide name because of his renowned racing vehicle. Since then, Disney and Pixar have made a ton of money. After all, no one had previously seen a film with such a high level of artistic accuracy in its day, and audiences had never seen anything like it before. In 2011, Cars 2 was released.
Michael Caine’s voiced Finn McMissile who was a spy who worked with Lightning in Cars 2. (The Dark Knight). However, the plot and humor of the 2011 sequel were judged to be weak. After suffering a catastrophic collision during a race, Lightning is forced to prepare to face up a fresh generation of racers in Cars 3. While Cars 3 was a step up from its predecessor, it also dealt with a number of darker topics.
As a box office triumph, Cars 3 had a significant drop in ticket sales compared to its predecessor. As of 2011, Cars 2 made over $560 million, while Cars 3 brought in over $380 million. Once again, those numbers aren’t bad. However, they imply that Cars is losing some of its appeals due to its mixed response.
Cars 4: Expected Plot
However, in the last race, Cruz Ramirez replaces Lightning, who had been trained by Cruz Ramirez since Cars 3. Also, the third movie was referred to as McQueen’s “third act,” with the finale suggesting Cruz would be the next racer and Lightning would be his coach. A fourth Cars film, if it happens, could still have McQueen racing even if Pixar has no intentions for a fourth film.
There have been a number of Pixar sequels in recent years, such as Finding Dory and Incredibles 2. From now on, the firm intends to concentrate on producing unique products, after the release of Toy Story 4.
While Cars 4 is technically possible, it will not get released any time soon, if at all. McQueen’s narrative was well wrapped up in Cars 3, but the film’s poor performance relative to prior installments suggests that the franchise may be on hold for the foreseeable future.
Fans of the franchise, on the flip hand, simply can not wait for the next chapter. The anticipation for the upcoming film is already sky-high. In 2018, fan-made trailers hinted at Cars 4’s release. However, little is known about the movie’s future as of 2021.
