The world of Cars takes flight in Planes, Disney’s high-flying animated comedy revved up with action and adventure. Join Dusty, a crop duster with sky-high dreams and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take on the world’s fastest flyers in the greatest air race ever. Dusty has a huge heart but two big problems…he’s not exactly built for speed, plus he’s afraid of heights. His courage is put to the ultimate test as this unlikely hero aims higher than he ever imagined. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built for—and the inspiration to soar.
If you or your kids are a fan of the Cars movies, I’m certain you’ll like Disney’s Planes too. I do know if Disney ever comes out with a Trains movie, that my son will be super thrilled. Let’s talk about Planes though. This flick is sure to be liked by both boys and girls but I feel it just might be capture the interest of boys more. Quite frankly, there’s just something about trains, planes, and automobiles that boys and men can’t get enough of. So it’s nice to see Disney offering more movies that appeal to boys.
The story is about a crop duster that has really big dreams! The aim of the story-line to motivate kids to keep trying even though the impossible seems to be ahead of you. It also teaches the value of being honest, nurture your friendships, and face your fears. The animation looks great and characters are quite an interesting bunch featuring voices from an all-star cast.
My daughter age 5 1/2 has watched the movie a couple of time since we got it and my son that’s nearly three paid attention off and on. Like I said before, if the movie was about trains, he probably would have paid attention entirely. Planes just wasn’t for him though he did really like the Cars 2 movie. I will say quite a few of the jokes in this film were a bit beyond my kids. They did really enjoy the high flying action scenes though.
I did like that there were all sorts of different types of planes featured in the movie and the fact the race traveled all over. Kids got a small taste of other cultures. There was a lot of plane parts and lingo going on so a thing or two was to be learned here. I was little disappointed there were really no huge twist or surprises in the story-line though. I think the meat of the story to develop until later on and that maybe if it was sooner it would have kept the full attention of both my kids. A decent movie none the less but I’m not sure how big the watch-ability factor will be like other Disney movies we own which have been watched nearly hundreds of times.
