'Planes' Soars with Longer, More Majestic Trailer

A new, and much longer, feature for Disney’s movie Planes – which we’re told takes place “above the world of Cars” – has arrived online courtesy of the animation studios, and it sets a far more respectful, somewhat awe-inspired tone. It’s amazing what a difference a choice of music can make. These tunes come from the film’s composer, Mark Mancina. They give the movie weight and gravity. It’s really excellent. 

Watch the tease for yourselves:
 

 
There’s a reverence to this lengthy clip, a sentiment that weds nicely to the sweeping aerial shots of Disney’s animated airplanes as they take flight over some majestic territories. There are plenty of nods to the Cars characters, from the tractors in the fields to a garage mate who looks an awful lot like Luigi. 
 
And there’s Dusty, the cropduster (voiced by Dane Cook) who will be at the center of the adventure powering this Pixar spinoff. 
 
For those who don’t know the behind-the-scenes on Planes, it at one point was due to be a direct-to-DVD spinoff. But Disney saw greatness in its materials, and they saved it for theatrical release. Watching this new clip, it’s easy to understand why. 
 
Planes will be in theaters on Aug. 9. Get your tickets now!
