Lightning McQueen who?! The OG of childhood race car memories is hitting the track! Hot Wheels is gearing up its engines at Warner Bros. and Bad Robot. When is the Hot Wheels movie coming out and what do we know about it so far?

Mattel is making dreams (that we didn’t even know we had) come true. Do you still have your Hot Wheels collection? Kids these days have Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater cars and toys to play with, but our generation grew up with Mattel’s Hot Wheels. The racing car toy has been around for over 50 years and continues to create new models, never one to fall behind on trends.

Hot Wheels movie release date predictions

Not having an official release date is not uncommon when the news about the upcoming movie is still fresh. On Jan. 23, Deadline announced that Hot Wheels movie was in the making. That said, it is too early to know when the movie will premiere. Our best guess is not until very late 2024 or early 2025. As soon as we have more updates, we’ll update this post!

Hot Wheels movie plot

Just like the release date, it’s too early to know about the synopsis — and we have so many questions! For starters, will this be an animated feature?

Hot Wheels movie cast

Okay, so we may not know who will star in the movie (or voice the characters, if this is an animated feature), but the movie does already have writers attached. According to the source, Hot Wheels will be written by Dalton Leeb and Nicholas Jacobson-Larson.

Again, as soon as we learn more details about the upcoming feature, we will update this post! In the meantime, let’s look forward to Mattel’s other upcoming project, Barbiestarring Margot Robbie and Ryan Gosling, in theaters on July 21.
