A spin-off of the Disney smash hit film Cars, DisneyToon Studios production of Planes hopes to capture the same "feel good" atmosphere of the original, only this time in the air instead of on four wheels.
Dusty the Crop-Duster is friends to all, and loves nothing more than zooming among the clouds. He has a dream of competing in an around-the-world race, but there's a couple of obstacles in his way: His design isn't conducive to long-range racing and he has an almost paralyzing fear of heights. With patient mentoring from Skipper, a naval aviator, Dusty slowly begins to conquer his demons and qualifies for the race. During the race's final leg, disaster strikes, and Dusty is forced to perform far beyond his training and abilities to soar higher than he ever imagined.
A star-studded voice cast is featured, including Dane Cook, Stacy Keach, John Cleese, Teri Hatcher, Val Kilmer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Anthony Edwards. Reportedly, Planes is the first in a series of three films, with Planes 2: Fire and Rescue already in the works.
