A Father/Son “Plane Date” with Disney Planes #Cbias #WorldofCars


When I first saw the preview for Disney Planes the movie, there was no doubt in my mind that it would be a hit. My son loves just about everything from Disney Pixar Films (especially Cars the movie), and honestly, I love them too! I’d probably watch them all even if I didn’t have kids.

But I decided to skip this one and let my boys have their own “Plane Date” at the movies. Why? Well, since I’ve been home with the kids, it seems that Daddy just doesn’t get that much QT anymore. Our days are so busy that father/son time has been pretty hard to come by, and I can see little indications here and there that they really need it. And since we live near a small airport and see light aircraft often, planes are kind of their “thing.” So, I sent them off on their own to have some high-flying fun.

And high-flying was right! When my son came back, he was definitely flying and all he could talk about was Dusty Crophopper. And for weeks before the movie he had been asking for a remote control plane (I have no idea why.) So, I did a little looking and found that Disney Planes’ Dusty did, in fact, come in a remote control toy…and it was available in the Disney Walmart section!

From the World of Cars: Disney’s Planes! Coming this Summer! #DisneyPlanes

How many times have you watched Cars? If you have little ones, I’m guessing the number might be a leeetle bit high.

Well, I have good news! This summer (August 9th, to be exact) there will be a new Disney movie in town…

Inspired by the world of Cars, this action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure features Dusty, and his dream of competing as a high-flying air racer. Unfortunately, Dusty also has a decidedly unfortunate fear of heights!  My guess is that he might overcome that fear. What do you think?

Joining Dane Cook, who provides the voice of Dusty, are Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Cedric the Entertainer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, Carlos Alazraqui, Priyanka Chopra, Gabriel Iglesias, Roger Craig Smith, Colin Cowherd, Sinbad, Oliver Kalkofe and Brent Musburger. Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer, who both also happened to co-star in Top Gun, are even reuniting for the film!

Check out the trailer here:

With all the questionable programming on TV these days, we’ve come to rely on carefully-chosen Disney movies when we want to unwind after a day of outdoor play. This is one we’ll definitely be adding to our collection!

How about you? Are you looking forward to Disney’s Planes?
