    Disney's Planes to get theatrical release

    Direct to DVD no more, Planes due to fly into cinemas this coming summer.

    While Planes takes place in the Cars universe created by Pixar, the movie doesn’t come from Pixar. Nor was it created by Walt Disney Animation Studios, whose recent hits include Tangled and Wreck-It Ralph. Instead, it hails from DisneyToon Studios. Their credits include a handful of theatrical features, like Pooh’s Heffalump Movie and A Goofy Movie, but consists mostly of direct-to-DVD sequels such as Mulan II, Tarzan II, and Bambi III.

    The studio announced today that Planes will get a theatrical release on August 9, 2013.

    When I first saw this trailer months ago, I thought it was a parody of Cars, and was then shocked to find out it wasn't.

    Here comes the next expansion of CA Adventure: Planes Land.
    "You can cut me off from the civilized world. You can incarcerate me with two moronic cellmates. You can torture me with your thrice daily swill, but you cannot break the spirit of a Winchester. My voice shall be heard from this wilderness and I shall be delivered from this fetid and festering sewer."

    Sadly, toonifying Soarin' would make it more entertaining.

    I think it looks cute! I was going to buy it when it came out on DVD... I still will but guess I will have to wait a bit longer to get it.

    Re: Disney's Planes to get theatrical release

    I guess giving it a cinematic release removes the stigma of "direct-to-DVD" but some will still see it as a cash grab.
    Putting my Disney fan business hat on for a moment, it doesn't seem a bad idea expanding the Cars market (even if this isn't a Pixar product) and may just find a niche for itself, at least in the Disney Stores.

    I'll reserve judgement until we see more, but I'll admit though, it looks well done.

    Re: Disney's Planes to get theatrical release

    Easy to explain. The Pixar release in June, Monsters University - not exactly a merchandising dynamo though it should do quite nicely in theaters-. But next Christmas after the Planes release - shelves lined with toy planes, racks of plane t-shirts, large end-caps stuffed with DVD's and Blu-Rays. A new cash cow.

    Or... the movie just might be better than they all expected it to be and if that's the case, has a shot of bigger money in a theatrical release and a shot at the Oscars and Annie Awards (its a long shot but a shot nonetheless).

    Re: Disney's Planes to get theatrical release

    What's everyone surprised for? This isn't new. I could have sworn I saw this trailer online 1.5 to 2 years ago.

    Also, whether this is Pixar or Disney, it started out as a Pixar effort. I wish I could name names, but my friend who works there was slated to be on Planes 3 ( talk about planning into the future! ) when he was told there would be no Planes 3, maybe a 2 at best.

    ^You are correct, the trailer first came out August '11, but that was back when it was Direct-to-DVD, however they've now elevated it to a theatrical release. Which one could hope means that they've realised its "too good just for DVD" (pause for laughter).

    I'm actually excited for this, as if my brother. I think it looks more entertaining than a car movie. But that is just me.

    Re: Disney's Planes to get theatrical release

    When I first heard about 'Cars' back in 2004, I was already sold on that concept.

    However, I've always had a soft-spot for automobiles since I was young.

    As for 'Planes,' I haven't been pulled in by the previews.

    Of all the ideas that were shown to test audiences, this one had the best response. This either means it was that good or the rest weren't as interesting. This trailer alone doesn't show much of anything.
