From the creators of Cars, Planes soars into theaters today! Should you see it? Check out the video trailer.
Planes stars Dusty (who’s voiced by Dane Cook), a big-hearted, fast-flying crop duster who dreams of competing in an around-the-world air race in history. But Dusty is not exactly built for racing and he’s afraid of heights.
Despite his fear and with encouragement from his mentor, a naval aviator named Skipper, Dusty narrowly qualifies for the big competition. Dusty’s sportsmanship and speed begin to rattle the defending champ of the race circuit, Ripslinger, who will stop at nothing to see Dusty fail.
When disaster strikes during the climax of the final race, Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test. With the support of friends old and new, Dusty reaches heights he never dreamed possible and in the process, gives a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
Will your kids like it?
Kids will love the 3-D animation and the friendly and funny characters. My kids really liked Dusty and were very interested in his story. My almost 8 year old son loved the war flashbacks (go figure!). If your kids liked Cars, then they’re going to like Planes. We recommend seeing it.
