Planes is an upcoming spin-off of the 2006 animated film Cars and the 2011 animated sequel Cars 2, and the first film in the Planes trilogy.[4] However, Pixar Animation Studios, the production team for Cars, will not be producing the film. Instead, it will be produced by DisneyToon Studios.[5] It was initially set to be released by Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on DVD and Blu-ray in Fall 2013,[6] but it will instead have a theatrical release by Walt Disney Pictures on August 9, 2013;[3] this shift from video to theatrical release has happened before with Doug's First Movie (in 1999) and The Tigger Movie (in 2000). It will be the first DisneyToon Studios film released theatrically in North America since Pooh's Heffalump Movie eight and a half years earlier in 2005.

Production

Despite the fact that Pixar isn't producing the film, John Lasseter, being chief creative officer of both Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios, will be one of the producers.[1]

Lasseter had this to say about the film:

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. 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.[5]

On August 20, 2011 at the D23 Expo it was announced that Jon Cryer would be the voice of the main protagonist Dusty.[1] However, Cryer later dropped out of production and was replaced by Dane Cook.[8] The second trailer for the film was released on February 27, 2013.[12]

Release

Planes was originally set to be released in North America as a direct-to-video in Fall 2013,[6] while having a theatrical release in Europe,[13] but it is now set to be released theatrically by Walt Disney Pictures on August 9, 2013,[3]

Sequel

A sequel, entitled Planes 2: Fire and Rescue, is also in development.[14]
