Walt Disney Pictures
December 21, 2012
Walt Disney Pictures announced today that their upcoming animated film Planes will see a release theatrically on August 9, 2013.
Originally planned for a direct-to-home video release, Planes is an extension of the world featured in Cars and Cars 2.
Planes follows Dusty, a small town dreamer who longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race... despite his fear of heights. With the help and support of a fleet of new and hilarious characters, Dusty wings his way into the biggest challenge of his life.
The August 9 release date puts Planes up against Neill Blomkamp's sci-fi tale Elysium and the New Line comedy We're the Millers.
