A couple of months ago it was announced that Disney Cars spin-off film Planes would be getting a theatrical release instead of going straight to Blu-ray/DVD, which was the original plan. A new full trailer has been released for the movie, and it looks like it could be fun. It's definitely got a generic feel to it, but the children of the world will definitely enjoy it. Lets' face it, that's the target audience for this movie.
The movie was produced by DisneyToon Studios and was directed by Klay Hall. Pixar animation doesn't have anything to do with this one. The movie stars Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men), and here's the synopsis...
From high above the world of Cars, flies Planes, Disney’s upcoming animated action-packed comedic adventure starring Dusty, a big-hearted, fast-flying crop duster who dreams of competing in the most exhilarating around-the-world air race in history. There’s only a couple of not-so-small problems – Dusty is not exactly built for racing and he also happens to be afraid of heights.
Despite his fear and with encouragement from his mentor, a naval aviator named Skipper, Dusty narrowly qualifies for the big competition. Dusty’s sportsmanship and speed begin to rattle the defending champ of the race circuit, Ripslinger, who will stop at nothing to see Dusty fail.
When disaster strikes during the climax of the final race, Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test. With the support of friends old and new, Dusty reaches heights he never dreamed possible and in the process, gives a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
The movie is set to be released on August 9th, 2013.
