Disney’s PLANES trailer – set in the Pixar world just without Pixar making it


If you’re not familiar with Disney’s PLANES, a pseudo-sequel to the CARS franchise, then you may have missed the various teaser videos leading up to the fall release. Now we’ve got a full trailer, which should good folks an idea of what to expect… and if you’ve seen the CARS movies, you probably can guess where this is all headed anyway. It’s a little odd not seeing Pixar mentioned anywhere here, but since this is a Disney movie and not a Pixar movie, chances are fans will be seeing something familiar without the same impeccable quality they’re used to. Regardless, it looks like mindless fun, and Dane Cook as the lead voice is pretty inspired. Also listen for the voices of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Teri Hatcher, Brad Garrett, John Cleese, Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Stacy Keach, Sinbad, Cedric The Entertainer, Gabriel Iglesias and Brent Musburger. Take a look at the UK trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

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.
