Disney has been advertising this movie for about a year & I was dying to see it. I wasn't disappointed; can't wait to take grandson to see it.

Cars - Original, spectacular animated graphics, loved it.
Cars two - full of funny clips but the movie didn't flow well for me.
Planes - A good movie of an underdog (cars 1), but different enough that I wouldn't call it Cars rebadged. Disney Pixar are amazing on the animated graphics and nailed this one too!
A good movie for the big screen. Enjoy!

Planes in 3D and surround sound is a great adventure. It has authentic aviation technical details behind the cute anthropomorphic airplane characters. Even the radio communications are authentic, which is more than can be said for many serious flying movies. It did lack a Piper Turbo Arrow, but maybe the sequel will fix that.
There are no new plots so Planes borrows from Starlight Express or the Little Engine That Could, and Zero Hour or Airplane! (depending on your level of inside knowledge), etc. The voices are well cast. One plot twist was all wet but they got past it OK. The 3D animation is excellent. The sounds of engines starting, such as the Corsair's, are authentic.
I recommend this movie for the whole family.

Let me just start out by saying, I thought "Planes" was through Pixar. But, even if it was, I thought their last film, "Monsters University" was just okay. That's essentially how I felt when watching this one as well. Sorry, but I feel that Disney films are starting to slip in great quality! The story in "Planes" is somewhat similar to "Turbo," which I believe was a much better film. Of course, the animation is fantastic, as is the flying sequences; but, I thought the storyline was ehh. Again, I must state, because Disney is going to produce "Star Wars: Episode VII." I concerned.

Much like the Disney Pixar Cars, Planes brings the characters to life w/ individual personalities and appearance. Appreciated that the planes were representative of various countries and, of course, had a moral values message for kids. Some of the humor was intended for the adults, but observed the movie to be enjoyed by all - even w/out a riveting story line! 3D effects were a nice touch!
