Owen Wilson, Armie Hammer and Director Brian Fee Talk “Cars 3”

For Owen Wilson Cars 3 meant reprising the role of Lightning McQueen but infusing the champ with the self-doubt and introspection that comes with inevitable decline. The task of giving life to brash young upstart Jackson Storm fell to Armie Hammer. And first-time director Brian Fee, working with Ben Queen, had the most delicate assignment of all: preserve the heritage of John Lasseter’s characters while taking them into new dramatic territory. All three spoke to the HFPA’s Gabriel Lerman and Mirai Konishi.
