Watch Sneak Peek Of Disney's Cars Spin-off Planes
Last week Disney unveiled character posters for their upcoming Cars spin-off Planes, and a couple of clever allusions. Top Gun stars Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer were brought on board Planes to lend their voices to two F-18 jets named Bravo and Echo. In the sneak peek above, we get to see them in action, racing against this animated adventure's plucky underdog protagonist Dusty (voiced by stand up comedian Dane Cook), a crop duster who hopes to overcome his fear of heights to become the world's greatest flyer.
It's funny. The official title and plot announcement of Finding Nemo's sequel has the internet freshly scandalized over Disney's influence on Pixar. Finding Dory has some proclaiming the integrity of Pixar is officially gone, even though the animation studio has been in the sequels business since 1999's Toy Story 2, which opened seven years before Disney bought Pixar.
At least Finding Dory has celebrated Finding Nemo director Andrew Stanton back to helm. Planes is a far more dubious sequel on Disney's docket as its based on the world established in Pixar's Cars and Cars 2, but is not a Pixar production. Instead, it is being produced by DisneyToon Studios, a division of Disney Animation that is predominantly dedicated to direct-to-video movies like Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, Tarzan II and The Lion King 1 ½. But as Planes was originally conceived as a home entertainment release, maybe this should not be a sign of trouble.
Either way, we'll find out when Disney's Planes opens in 3D on August 9th.
