“From high above the world of "Cars," flies "Planes," Disney’s upcoming animated action-packed comedic adventure starring Dusty, a big-hearted, fast-flying crop duster who dreams of competing in the most exhilarating around-the-world air race in history. There’s only a couple of not-so-small problems – Dusty is not exactly built for racing and he also happens to be afraid of heights.
Despite his fear and with encouragement from his mentor, a naval aviator named Skipper, Dusty narrowly qualifies for the big competition. Dusty’s sportsmanship and speed begin to rattle the defending champ of the race circuit, Ripslinger, who will stop at nothing to see Dusty fail.
When disaster strikes during the climax of the final race, Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test. With the support of friends old and new, Dusty reaches heights he never dreamed possible and in the process, gives a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.”
I got to attend an advanced screening of Disney Planes with my 5 year old son. I enjoyed the movie and so did my son. I thought it was very well done. It is really cute and has some great messages in it. Like, over coming your fears and doing the right thing. I really like when kid shows have good messages like that. I found myself laughing a few times and that was a good and unexpected surprise. My son laughed a lot and loved the whole movie. He can’t wait for it to come out on Blu-ray so he can watch it over and over!
This movie is a great one to take the whole family to. Although there are a couple intense scenes (with a storm, and not knowing if Dusty will be okay, etc…) and a few younger children in the seats behind me were getting pretty upset. Just keep that in mind if you are taking really young children.
We saw it in 3D and it was enjoyable. I don’t think it is a must see in 3D though, nothing really very special about it. So seeing it in 2D would be in my opinion just as good.
