Trailer for Disney’s CARS Spinoff, PLANES

     February 27, 2013

Disney has released the first trailer for their Cars spinoff, Planes.  The film was originally set to go directly-to-DVD, but now Disney is sending it to the big screen.  The story focuses on Dusty, “a small town dreamer who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race… despite his fear of heights.”  The original plan to send the film direct-to-DVD isn’t necessarily a bad sign.  Toy Story 2 was originally set to go to straight-to-video, and that’s one of Pixar’s crown jewels.  However, Planes comes from Pixar’s two weakest films, and the studio has no involvement in the spinoff.  Still, Planes will probably serve its main purpose, which is to keep the Cars merchandise train rolling.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  Planes opens August 9th. [Update: Disney has informed us that this is the same trailer that played at the D23 Expo last year, and thus is not new. Expect an official theatrical trailer soon.]

Via Disney.


Here’s the official synopsis for Planes:

PLANES takes off with an international cast of the fastest air racers around, in a comedy packed with action and adventure starring Dusty, a small town dreamer who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race … despite his fear of heights. With the help and support of a fleet of new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.
