Disney has announced that Pixar's Cars spin-off film Planes will be getting a theatrical release on August 9th, 2013. Like Cars 2, the movie was originally supposed to be a direct-to-home video release, but the studio must feels like it's good enough to get a big screen release, and Pixar fans are sure to flock to theaters to see it.
PLANES takes off with an international cast of the fastest air racers around, in a comedy packed with action and adventure starring Dusty, a small town dreamer who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race … despite his fear of heights. With the help and support of a fleet of new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.
The movie stars Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men), and it looks like will be a fun movie! Here's the previously released teaser trailer. Do you think Planes looks promising enough to justify a big-screen release?
