Disney has just released a new trailer for their upcoming CG animated feature, Planes. Note that even though the film looks like it came from Pixar (and considering their partnership), Planes is actually a project of Disney’s Animation Studio so all eyes are on this project just to see if Disney can deliver a CG film that is up to par with Pixar’s standards.
Planes is set in the same universe as “Cars,” but instead of following automobiles, the film focuses on the skies as it tells the story of a plane named Dusty, who dreams of becoming a high-flying racer even though he’s not exactly built to be one. Add the fact that he’s afraid of heights and it seems like the dream is meant to be nothing but a dream. Then he meets a seasoned aviator who helps him qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit, and so Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar”.
Disney’s Planes takes off in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.
