Three-time F1 world champion racing driver Lewis Hamilton has revealed he is voicing one of the characters in the upcoming Disney/Pixar movie, CARS 3.
He announced the role on his social channels, saying: ‘Excited to be back working with Pixar on CARS 3. The film is action packed and mega! I can't wait for you to see it.’
The turbo-charged CARS 3 sees Owen Wilson return as the voice of legendary ‘Lightning McQueen’ and Armie Hammer join the voice cast as new character, and McQueen’s new rival, ‘Jackson Storm’.
In the movie, McQueen is blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers and pushed out of the sport he loves. To get back in the game, he will need the help of an eager young race technician, Cruz Ramirez, with her own plan to win, plus inspiration from the late Fabulous Hudson Hornet and a few unexpected turns.
Proving that #95 isn’t through yet will test the heart of a champion on Piston Cup Racing’s biggest stage.
CARS 3 will arrive in Irish cinemas on July 14, 2017.
