Disney’s Planes started out life years ago as a direct-to-DVD project, based on the world of Pixar’s Cars but made by the House Of Mouse’s DisneyToon Studios subsidiary. However they eventually decided to turn it into a theatrical feature, and this new trailer gives a hint as to why.
The decision to turn it from DVD to cinema came around the same time 3D took off in cinema, and this promo certainly shows off the three-dimensional potential of the movie, as well as looking incredibly pretty indeed.
Disney’s Planes is described as an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty, a big hearted crop duster and his dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights. It’ll hit cinemas this August.
