 DISNEYTOON STUDIOS ANNOUNCES PLANES An All-New High-Flying Feature-Length Comedy Adventure With A Fleet Of Fun New Characters  

BURBANK, Calif. - February 17, 2011 - The sky's the limit as DisneyToon Studios proudly announces PLANES - a spectacular, full-length CG animated comedy action adventure movie for everyone set high above the world of CARS. PLANES will introduce an entirely original and hilarious crew of daredevils from every corner of the globe and draws inspiration from the immensely popular Disney•Pixar's CARS world. PLANES will arrive on Blu-rayTM and DVD in Spring 2013.

"We had such a great time exploring the world of 'Cars' over the course of two films, so it seemed only natural for us to see where our imaginations would take us in a film where planes were the main characters. By expanding the Cars world, 'Planes' gave us a whole new set of fun-filled situations and a great opportunity to introduce some fantastic new characters," commented John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. "The team at DisneyToon Studios has done such an amazing job creating a heartfelt story filled with great comedy, adventure, and emotion. I know audiences are going to love taking off into the wild blue yonder with these daredevil characters, as they experience a whole new kind of animated adventure."


Fasten your seatbelt as more information on PLANES will be arriving shortly.
