Disney’s done it again!! Disney’s Planes will soar into theaters August 9, 2013! My son has only seen the logo and the photo below and he’s already super excited. Take a four year old #1 Disney Cars fan show him a photo of a plane with a face and you got all day questions. “When can I see that? What’s that planes name? Is lightening in there? Are going to take me to see that?” He’s already super excited and he hasn’t even seen the trailer yet. I’m sure your children will be too.
“Disney’s Planes” is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty’s dream of competing as a high-flying air racer and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights. Disney’s Planes is inspired by the world of “Cars” and directed by Disneytoon Studios veteran and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall (“King of the Hill,” “The Simpsons”). The film takes off in theaters in 3D on Aug. 9, 2013.
Even more exciting the popular American stand up comedian Dane Cook has been tapped to voice the lead character Dusty the plane.
Cook is well known for his appearances on Comedy Central and HBO specials, and for his successful comedy albums. He recently guest starred on “Louie” opposite Louie C.K., and his film credits include starring roles in a host of films, including “My Best Friend’s Girl” opposite Kate Hudson, “Dan In Real Life” opposite Steve Carell, and “Mr. Brooks” opposite Kevin Costner. The actor/comedian just signed a deal with NBC Entertainment and Universal Television to develop a new project starring Cook.
“Dane Cook brings unmatched charisma and brilliant comedic timing and instincts to the character,” said Hall. “He gives Dusty a great edge.”
