‘Planes’ Trailer: The Terrifying Anthropomorphic Series Takes to The Skies


Though children everywhere adore the Cars series, the Pixar tales chronicling a world run by anthropomorphic vehicles who don’t appear to give a good goddamn about the non-existence of humans continues to terrify any adult who gives the franchise even the most brief of thoughts. Where the hell are the people?

Continuing in the grand tradition of Cars, Disney has now branched off with Planes, which chronicles the adventures of, well, planes. It seems as if said planes and cars exist in the same freak world, and those cars just love watching aerial races, because honestly, why not at this point? The new film stars Dane Cook(‘s voice) as Dusty Crophopper, a crop-duster desperate to compete in the world’s most prestigious race, who has one major problem – he is afraid of heights. That’s both charming and just sort of obvious, so we look forward to the resulting final feature (or at least, we’re looking forward to having something sweet to take the kids to).

After the break, check out the first trailer for Planes, guaranteed to be the new favorite film of all the kiddos in your life.

Planes opens on August 9th.
