Disney has released a sneak peek of its upcoming movie “Planes,” a 3D animated comedy adventure featuring a plane named Dusty who has dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. However, Dusty is not built for racing and is also afraid of heights – forcing him to turn to a seasoned naval aviator for help in qualifying to take on the defending champ of the race circuit.
Planes is actually a spin-off of the 2006 animated film Cars (and the 2011 animated sequel Cars 2) plus its intended to be the first film in a trilogy; but while Pixar Animation Studios was the production team for Cars, Planes will be produced by DisneyToon Studios.
However and judging by the comments posted on YouTube, those who watched the trailer are, well, less than thrilled by what they saw – to put it politely (I guess everyone is a critic!)
Disney’s “Planes” is set to take off in US theaters in August. So I guess we will have to wait until then to see if Planes will soar or quickly crash back to earth at the box office with a thud!
