Like Pixar’s Toy Story 2, it started out as a direct to video movie, but unlike other films in the Cars universe, this one is animated by Disneytoon Studios. They’ve done a great job with the Tinkerbell movies, so I was not surprised to see the quality of animation, backgrounds, lighting, and colors so amazing for Disney’s Planes. This new trailer for the movie even kicks it up another notch:
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 in 3D on Aug. 9, 2013, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theaters.
