Racer Anonymous is an upcoming 2023 American 3D computer-animated comedy-adventure sports film produced by Illumination Entertainment and distributed by Universal Pictures. Directed by Chris Renaud and co-directed by Eric Guillon, the film is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 7, 2023.
A shy, but smart, 12-year-old boy turns his remote-controlled toy car into the world's fastest racing machine, which also has a mind of its own, and enters it in a racing competition to impress the girl of his dreams.
Steve Burke, the NBCUniversal CEO, confirmed that a new film from Illumination Entertainment is set for a July 2023 release. Chris Renaud, director of The Secret LIfe of Pets, will direct the film along side Eric Guillon (Despicable Me 3). Writers of the Big Hero 6 vs. the Forces of Evil films and Moana and the Two Strings will write the screenplay for the film. The film will also be a satire of "inspirational sports dramas".
The film is scheduled for theatrical release on July 7, 2023.
