“Disney’s Planes” takes off TODAY in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013. I had a chance to see it at the Premiere earlier this week and I have to say this is a perfect option for families looking to catch a last family movie before school starts back. It’s set in the “World of Cars” so the scenery, etc. will already make you feel at home. You start off in a little town called Propwash Junction where you meet Dusty Crophopper (voice of Dane Cook) our hero. Dusty dream like all of us do. He’s built to be a cropduster, but has dreams of racing and competing with the other high-flying air racers. There’s just a teeny tiny problem….Dusty is afraid of heights.
With a cast of fun new characters Dusty trains for the big race around the world and the kids will love all the chaos that ensues. This started out as a straight-to-DVD DisneyToons movie, but they released the potential it had and it garnered a theatrical release. PLUS, it has already been announced that this will be a trilogy with DisneyToon already working on a sequel, called Planes 2: Fire and Rescue scheduled for a 3D theatrical release on July 18, 2014
Bottom line, is this is a fun new Disney franchise that helps the younger kids aspire and hope….as the tagline goes “Be More Than Your Built For” and who doesn’t want their kids to believe in that?
