A couple of months ago it was announced that Disney Cars spin-off film Planes would be getting a full theatrical release instead of going straight to disc, which was the original plan. A new full trailer has been released for the movie, and it looks like it could be fun. The only part that worries me is that Pixar has nothing to do with it, which is why it kind of feels plain. I wish Pixar would go ahead and make Marvel and Star Wars stuff.
The movie is produced by DisneyToon Studios and was directed by Klay Hall. The movie stars Jon Cryer (Two and a Half Men). Here is the official 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 will soar on August 9th, 2013.
