From above the world of “Cars” comes Disney’s “Planes,” an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty, a small-town plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to naval aviator Skipper, who helps Dusty qualify to take on Ripslinger, the defending champ of the race circuit. 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. “Planes” takes off in theatres in 3D on Aug. 9, 2013, and will be presented in Disney Digital 3D™ in select theatres.

Another great Disney animated movie is set to hit the theatres today! PLANES! It follows along the same lines as the Disney animated movie Cars, in that there are still those crazy talking cars roaming about, except this time there are also some talking planes in the mix.
This movie follows the trials and tribulations of Dusty Crophopper, a crop dusting plane who dreams big, and wants to be a racing jet in a world renown flying contest around the world. He has a trusty crew of Dottie, a forklift, Chug, a fuel truck, and Skipper Riley, a retired veteran plane, who help him to achieve his dreams. Also along the way, he meets up with some exotic planes from around the world, such as the hilarious El Chupacabra from Mexico, the proper Bulldog from England, the bi-polar Franz from Germany, the hard-to-get Rochelle from French Canada (oh la la), and the mysterious love interest Ishani from India. Of course, Dusty also has to overcome his mean rival, Ripslinger, the 3 time defending world champion, and his henchmen, Ned and Zed. In one funny moment one of them has their “SkyPad” smashed, but Ripslinger reminds them that another one is coming out next month.
This is the ultimate film about the good little guy who plays hard, is almost defeated, but ultimately comes out on top. But of course it is, this is a Disney movie after all.
I went to see this movie with my 9, 5, and 2 year old boys, and they all loved it! So, I would definitely give this film a 2 thumbs up for the under tens in your life. It is full of action, has tons of goofy moments, and has a happy ending. What more could you want for a great summertime kids movie!
