Planes

Just recently we learned that Dane Cook would star in the seemingly disappointing Cars spin-off Planes from Disney Animation (not Pixar). But now the full voice cast for the film has been revealed, and while it certainly feels like the cast of a direct-to-DVD feature film, there are a couple of fun treats. For example, Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards are playing two fighter jets named Bravo and Echo, a throwback to their days in the Danger Zone from Top Gun. In addition, the cast of characters also includes Skipper (Stacy Keach), Lead bottom (Cedric the Entertainer), Dottie (Teri Hatcher) and many, many more. Read on!

There's also Chug (Brad Garrett), Ripslinger (Roger Craig Smith), Ned and Zed (Gabriel Iglesias), El Chupacabra (Carlos Alazraqui), Rochelle (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Bulldog (John Cleese), Ishani (Priyanka Chopra), Roper (Sinbad) and a sports-announcing blimpĀ  named Colin Cowling (voiced by ESPN sports pundit Colin Cowherd). And if you're looking for a glimpse of these high-flying (and some grounded) new vehicles, thankfully, USA Today has revealed every single one of those new characters:

Planes is directed by Klay Hall ("King of the Hill," Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure) and follows Dusty (Dane Cook), a small town crop dusting plane who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race despite his fear of heights. But Dusty's not exactly built for racing, so he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. The voice cast also includes Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards, John Cleese, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Brad Garrett, Gabriel Igelsias, Teri Hatcher and more. Disney Animation sends Planes to theaters on on August 9th, 2013 this summer. Thoughts?

    What a shameless toy cash-grab from Disney.
  • Anthony
    Personally I'm excited. I know some people may think this wont be any good but as a pilot I love that they are making this. The Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards throwback makes it even better, they even got the helmets right!

    If Walt Disney were alive today, he'd spit on everyone who was part of this movie, and then do the nazi salute.

    I care more about the other spin-off: Boats.

    Ha-ha, look at the helmets in the first picture. It's the colors and insignias of Iceman and Goose :)
