Being that we are such huge movie buffs and as a family we ALL loved the movie Cars, I knew from the first moment we saw a preview for the movie Planes, we had to see it! The first preview was well over a year ago and it couldn't have been more than a brief 20 seconds long. Even Kevin and myself were upset that we would have to wait a year to see it. So needless to say our family was extremely excited to have the opportunity to review Disney Planes this year!
"Disney's heartwarming family comedy, “PLANES,” revved up with high-flying action and adventure, lands in homes and mass retailers nationwide on November 19th on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On-Demand. I can tell you this is not a movie you want to miss out on! With hilarious star voices like Dane Cook (our favorite comedian), Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese and Val Kilmer, this is one of those movies that makes your family laugh so hard you cry!
The synopsis says "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."
This DVD includes several bonus features such as Meet the Racers and the Top 10 Flyers as well as Klay’s Flight Plan which takes you through the making of "Planes". Also included are alternate and deleted scenes plus a song and a few other video bonus's.
Disney has really outdone themselves this time as this is more than the classic story of the underdog! I love the way there are adult jokes implemented into these movies so adult don't get quite as bored having to watch them over and over with their kids. There were tons of eye-popping aerial sequences throughout the film and the we all thoroughly enjoyed the action in the film.
We decided to watch this movie while opening up one of our puzzles to work on as a family! The kiddos quickly lost interest in the puzzle and we barely got much done either as our focus was on the screen. This was such a cute movie for any and all ages especially with all the colors and great graphics! The story line is action packed with some truly heartfelt moment which may even bring on some tears!
Disney's Planes Salutes National Aviation History Month
Recommendation: I would definitely recommend this movie to most anyone but especially if you have children! With this month being National Aviation History Month and Veteran's Day just passing, its a great way to talk to your children and will make a great gift for the coming holidays! We absolutely love this movie and I am pretty positive we will be watching it for years to come! This is worth the purchase!!
