Disney’s Planes Takes Flight or Does it?


OK. I’m not sure why this is a “Disney” flick when it is clear Cars in the sky. That being said, I get the sense Pixar doesn’t want to sully their brand anymore than they did with Cars 2, so they ferried this thing over to pig brother, who clearly is able to handle disastrous flicks.

So here’s a promo for Disney’s Planes. Personally, it’s got a mix of Top Gun (since it stars Anthony “Goose” Edwards and Val “Iceman” Kilmer, it should) and Iron Eagle, and will probably be just as cheesy. Definitely aimed at the kids, which might be another reason why it’s parked at Disney. Let us know what you think, can Disney pull this off?

From above the world of “Cars” comes “Disney’s Planes,” an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar. “Disney’s Planes” takes off in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.
