Disney and American Airlines Collaborate in ‘Disney’s Planes’

2 July 2013 No Comment

When a studio makes a movie about planes, it seems natural to collaborate with a company that makes planes. And that’s just what happened with Disney’s Planes.

Walt Disney Studios and American Airlines announced last week that they have come together in a very special way for the summer release of Disney’s Planes – the movie features a character inspired by a new American Airlines plane.

The character is named Tripp, and he was inspired by American’s Boeing 777-300ER. In the movie, Tripp is “wearing” the new design for the airline which includes a new logo and the American flag on the plane’s tail.

The movie tells the story of Dusty, a plane with dreams of racing and a fear of heights. Dane Cook provides the voice of Dusty as part of cast of all-stars including Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, and Cedric the Entertainer.

Disney’s Planes flies into theaters on August 9. The film is produced by Disneytoon Studios and was directed by Klay Hall.
