Way back in 2011 we first heard about the film Planes, a spinoff taking place above the world of Pixar’s Cars and Cars 2. In this new trailer we get a little bit better of an idea for the story line of the film then what we had known previously. Though it’s a spinoff of a Pixar film it is actually being produced by DisneyToon Studios, whose last film released theatrically was Pooh’s Heffalump Movie back in 2005. Check out the trailer after the jump…
Planes was originally set to be released on Blu-ray and DVD by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment this fall but has since been moved to be released theatrically on August 9, 2013 by Walt Disney Pictures. It stars the voices of Brad Garret, Stacy Keach, and Carlos Alazraqui. Jon Cryer was originally signed on as the voice of the main protagonist Dusty Crophopper but has since dropped out,
no word yet on who will replace him. [UPDATE] Dane Cook has signed on to replace Jon Cryer.
So what do you think of the new trailer (now with the voice of Dane Cook) and the idea of a spinoff to the world of Cars not produced by Pixar (though one of the producers is John Lasseter, as he’s the chief creative officer of both Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios).
