While the first trailer for Planes was largely a take on Top Gun, this new trailer firmly places the film in the land of Pixar’s Cars. What’s nice to see is that the animation holds up the Pixar standards. All that’s left to see now is if the story can too.
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 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 in 3D on Aug. 9, 2013, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
What did you think of the trailer? Will you give it a pass or has this ratcheted up the excitement?
