Cars 4: Gas Destruction is a 2026 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Pixar Animation Studios for Walt Disney Pictures. Directed by Dan Scanlon, the film features a crossover between the Cars and Planes characters, and it is the fourth installment in the Cars franchise, as well as the third and final time the Planes characters appear in a theatrical film, and a sequel to 2017's Cars 3, as well as 2014's Planes: Fire & Rescue. The returning voices of Owen Wilson, Larry the Cable Guy, and Bonnie Hunt from Cars are joined in by Dane Cook, Stacy Keach, Teri Hatcher, Brad Garrett, Roger Craig Smith, and Gabriel Iglesias from Planes, as well as newcomer Anna Kendrick. In the film, McQueen and his friends team up with Dusty Crophopper in order to stop the terrifying Ripslinger from destroying the world's oil supply. The film opened up on June 19, 2026, to both positive reviews and a box-office success, grossing over $778 million on a $113 million budget. It features a posthumous role of Katherine Helmond, who died on February 23, 2019 and voiced Lizzie in the first three films.
