What happens in Cars?
Cars is a Disney franchise, produced by Pixar through CGI animation. It is set in the world of cars and other automobile and vehicles. The story of Cars revolves around Lightning McQueen, a rookie race car. Certainly, while running in a car race to California, he gets lost in his way.
Subsequently, he enters a small town in Route 66 known as Radiator Springs. However, he wrecks a road and is asked to mend it. Meanwhile, he finds a new best friend Mater and loves interest, Sally. Later, he is not wanted in the town anymore hence Doc Hudson arranges for him to leave. But then he realizes how much McQueen has done for the town, so he joins his crew chief and the town people join his crew.
After that, McQueen is close to winning the race but he helps The King, who was crashed, to win the race. McQueen is praised for his actions and is offered to be Dinoco’s face, which he declines. In the end, McQueen sets up his own racing headquarters in Radiator Springs.

The producers Kevin Reher and Andrea Warren said, “If there’s a good story to tell I mean our heads kinda break… what could you do the further adventures of? As long as there’s a good story to tell, it’s worth investing; we do love these characters, we love them as much as the public does.

Also, they hinted about the story line saying, “if Cruz is a breakout character, kind of like Mater was, she would be involved in a 4.” In fact, Owen Wilson indicated that the possible stories for Cars 4 have been discussed and he personally wants Cars 4 to be more thrilling. Hence it is highly likely for the Cars 4 to drop by Disney. However, nothing has been announced officially but there is a good chance that we’ll get to hear about Cars 4 soon.
