• Disney PLANES animated film set for August 9, 2013 theatrical release


    Although Disney just recently released the official movie slate for 2013 for the Walt Disney Studios, we have just received confirmation of another film being released next year... Disney PLANES.

    Originally slated for a direct-to-home release in Spring of 2013, it is now confirmed that the spin-off to Disney Pixar's CARS will now be released into theaters.

    Confusingly, the spin-off is NOT a Pixar project. Instead, it is being released under the Disney umbrella as originally intended when it was first announced. Starring Jon Cryer in the lead role as Dusty, Disney PLANES is set for theatrical release on August 9, 2013.

    In the film, we follow Dusty who lives in the small town of Propwash Junction. The single-prop agriculture plane could not be further from the lean, mean, trophy-winning machines he idolizes – and his co-workers remind him constantly. His mentor Skipper is convinced that Dusty has the engine to compete with the best, and helps encourage him to pursue his lifelong dreams. But if Dusty wants to make his dreams a reality, he‟ll need to push himself further than he ever imagined. With the help and support of a crew of all-new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.

    “Planes,” set to introduce audiences to an entirely new and hilarious crew of daredevils from every corner of the globe, draws inspiration from the immensely popular world of Disney•Pixar‟s “Cars.” Created, written and produced by DisneyToon Studios under the creative leadership of John Lasseter and directed by Emmy® nominated Klay Hall, “Planes” takes off with an international cast of the fastest air racers around, in a comedy packed with action and adventure.
