I was invited as media to attend a 2-day trip to LA for the premiere of Disney PLANES. All expenses were paid. All opinions are my own and may differ from your own.
Picking up where I left off (at the Disney Planes Pre-party), I made my way into the El Capitan Theatre and found my seat. The single theater included a large stage where an organ player welcomed us with Disney film songs. Once the multiple curtains were lifted, the Disney PLANES movie began.
PLANES is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty’s dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights.
Since Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook) is not “built for speed” because he is a crop duster, he enlists the help of his trusty friends, World War II fighter – Skipper (voiced by Stacy Keach), his mechanic – Dottie (Teri Hatcher), and his best friend – Chug (voiced by Brad Garrett) to help him prepare for the around-the-world race.
The film is perfect for the entire family. It’s a great underdog story, including many laughs, especially when El Chupacabra (voiced by Carlos Alazraqui) is on the big screen.
My only hesitation is the few scene moments where you see things from Dusty’s point of view. The twists and twirls of the camera can be a bit much for someone with motion sickness.
Overall, I really enjoyed the film and can not wait to take my boys to see it! It’s action packed and full of fun! Head to this page for more information on the PLANES film, including a trailer and the full cast line-up.
Remember the film takes off in theaters today, Friday August 9th!
