My kids have been simply begging to see this movie ever since I received the first press clip in my inbox. They adored Cars, so naturally. they were incredibly enthusiastic about following Dusty and his friends in their adventures. Okay, I admit it....I was pretty stoked, too!
Recently, we received a copy of the movie on Blu-Ray to check out for ourselves, finally. When "PLANES" arrived in our mailbox, my little ones starting clapping and jumping up and down. By this I mean my teenager as well as my preschoolers. My entire family was excited, to be honest!
Overall, this movie is gets an enthusiastic 10 thumbs up from our family of 5! So be sure to pick up your own copy on November 19th! This film would make a perfect Holiday gift this season!
Here is a brief synopsis of the film:
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.
