Watch: Disney's 'Planes' Take Flight in Gorgeous Score-Driven Promo
It's not exactly a trailer, but Disney just release this gorgeous new promo for their Cars spin-off Planes (which was not created with Pixar Animation), that has some truly stunning animated landscapes and scenery. Using a lot of the flying sequences from the film (of which there are many when the main characters are actually airplanes), the promo uses a very uplifting score by the film's composer, Mark Mancina (Training Day, August Rush). The promo really makes it feel like the film has some heart, but the sneak peek with all the dialogue still has me a little leery. Maybe Disney can pull this one off without Pixar?
Here's the sneak preview trailer for Disney's Planes, via Disney Movie Trailers:
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?
