DIsney-Pixar recently released the first trailer for Cars 3 but it hasn’t gone down well with parents who are calling it “unsuitable for children”.
There’s no doubt that the trailer is dark for a family film. In the clip, Owen Wilson’s character hurls through the air after a horrific crash and it’s got parents concerned, as they’ve taken to twitter to express their discontent:

Don't watch the Cars teaser with your kids unless you want to have the death conversation you avoid by by saying Spot went to a farm. #Cars3

Just watched the teaser trailer for Cars 3. Yikes! Dark. Sort of scared to show to the kids. Where's the silly Mater comic relief? $DIS
