“Disney’s Planes” is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing-and he happens to be afraid of heights. 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. “Disney’s Planes” takes off in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.
I have to admit that I was not really excited to go see Planes. It seemed a bit preschoolish and my kids have gotten older. I took the 7 and 10 year old to see it. The 7 year old loved the message and the movie. She was telling me that she thought this plane was being mean and that something bad would happen to him. She later told me that the good guys win so she knew how this would turn out. I thought that was so cute. She has amazed me with her candor.
My 10 year old said the movie was good and that’s about it. He seemed to “want” to be too old for it but watched the whole thing and didn’t seem to want it to end. Regardless of what he said, his body language showed me he liked it and had a good time at the movies. How is it possible my kids might be getting too old for Disney movies? Sigh. As a mom I don’t want them to ever be to old for Disney movies!
How did the adults feel about the movie? My hubby and I both enjoyed it. It was cute and fun. They did a good job of keeping the adults as well as the children entertained. The movie had a plane that was being a bit of a bully. Another plane was trying to flirt and being manipulative but she comes around and redeems herself. The good guys did win in the end! Win for mom and kids! Happily surprised at how much I enjoyed Disney’s Planes.
