Posted on


Jealous that car fanatics get all the movies?

Aviation enthusiasts will get their own moment in the sun when Disney’s Planes — a spinoff of the Cars universe — hits theaters Aug. 9. The family film revolves around single-propeller plane Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook), who dreams about the world beyond his town of Propwash Junction. Despite a fear of heights, Dusty enlists in the Wings Around the Globe rally to compete against the world’s greatest flying machines. Planes features the voices of Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese and Teri Hatcher, as well as Top Gun alums Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards for adults who enjoy ’80s nostalgia.

Check out an exclusive clip — which features characters voiced by Sinbad, Cook and Brad Garrett — below:
