Disneytoon Studios is gearing up for the theatrical release of Disney’s Planes later this summer. The studio is one of three animation studios under the leadership of John Lasseter, along with Pixar Animation Studios and Walt Disney Animation Studios.
Disney’s Planes 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.
Disneytoon Studios has been producing series based films for more than 20 years, including the popular Tinker Bell animated films. Last year’s Secret of the Wings was the first 3D movie for the studio. In Disney’s Planes the filmmakers, led by veteran animator Klay Hall, found inspiration in the world of the Cars films and created a high octane and high flying world for Dusty and his friends.
Look for Disney’s Planes in 3D when it comes to theaters August 9.
