“Cars 3” Press Event at the 2017 North American International Auto Show

I attended the Pixar Animation StudiosCars 3 press event held at the 2017 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) last week. John Lasseter was there (in one of his cool custom Reyn Spooner shirts) along with Cars Creative Director Jay Ward and Pixar Production Designer Jay Shuster. They set up the story of the film and talked about the design of two new characters–Jackson Storm and Cruz Ramirez. 

Here are some pics from the event. A full video of the presentation (courtesy of NAIAS) is hereCars 3 is coming to theaters on June 16, 2017.
