One of the most anticipated animated movies of the year is Disney’s Planes, and the studio has just released some exclusive footage. Take the first look below.
The all-new story offers an exciting cast of characters and centers on Dusty’s high-flying dream. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing, so he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
The characters (all of whom you can check out in our gallery) include Dusty, a crop-duster voiced by the previously-announced Dane Cook, Bravo and Echo, two Top Gun-style fighter jets appropriately voiced by Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer, Skipper (Stacy Keach), Leadbottom (Cedric the Entertainer), Dottie (Teri Hatcher), Chug (Brad Garrett), Ripslinger (Roger Craig Smith), Ned and Zed (Gabriel Iglesias), El Chupacabra (Carlos Alazraqui), Rochelle (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), Bulldog (John Cleese), Ishani (Priyanka Chopra), Roper (Sinbad) and sports-announcing blimp Colin Cowling (ESPN sports pundit Colin Cowherd).
In the clip, we see three small airplanes raising through the sky. They’re going as fast as they can, and it’s pretty action-packed… you know, for a kids’ movie. Planes arrives in theaters August 9.
Here’s the clip (suckers!):
