Disneytoons Studios Announces PLANES!

I’m excited to share the news with you… Disneytoons Studios is announcing the new release of PLANES! Our family has a couple of “Cars” addicts. Ethan even giggles and grins when I let him wear the “Cars” Pull-Ups. We can’t wait for the release!


An All-New High-Flying Feature-Length Comedy Adventure With A Fleet Of Fun New Characters

BURBANK, Calif. – February 17, 2011 – The sky’s the limit as DisneyToon Studios proudly

announces PLANES – a spectacular, full-length CG animated comedy action adventure movie

for everyone set high above the world of CARS. PLANES will introduce an entirely original and

hilarious crew of daredevils from every corner of the globe and draws inspiration from the

immensely popular Disney•Pixar’s CARS world. PLANES will arrive on Blu-ray™ and DVD in

Spring 2013.

“We had such a great time exploring the world of ‘Cars’ over the course of two films, so it

seemed only natural for us to see where our imaginations would take us in a film where planes

were the main characters. By expanding the Cars world, ‘Planes’ gave us a whole new set of

fun-filled situations and a great opportunity to introduce some fantastic new characters,”

commented John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.

“The team at DisneyToon Studios has done such an amazing job creating a heartfelt story filled

with great comedy, adventure, and emotion. I know audiences are going to love taking off into

the wild blue yonder with these daredevil characters, as they experience a whole new kind of

animated adventure.”

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.

Fasten your seatbelt as more information on PLANES will be arriving shortly.
