Disney's latest soars to Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D in mid-November!
In an early announcement to retailers, Disney/Buena Vista is preparing 'Planes' Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack and 'Planes - 3D' Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack for November 19.
The world of 'Cars' takes flight in 'Planes,' an animated comedy revved up with action and adventure. Join Dusty (Dane Cook), a crop duster with sky-high dreams and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take on the world's fastest flyers in the greatest air race ever. Dusty has a huge heart but two big problems: he's not exactly built for speed, and he's afraid of heights. His courage is put to the ultimate test, though, as this unlikely hero aims higher than he ever imagined. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built for, and the inspiration to soar.
The releases will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtracks, and supplements will include: Klay's Flight Plan: Follow Director Klay Hall's personal journey during the making of "Planes" in this 15-minute featurette and discover why his family connection to aviation made "Planes" his perfect project. Fly along with Klay as he lands on a working aircraft carrier to get first-hand experience on the flight deck; Deleted Scenes: Director Klay Hall and Producer Traci Balthazor-Flynn introduce deleted scenes from the movie, "Training Montage" and "Taj Mahal"; Top 10 Flyers: ESPN's Colin Cowherd hosts a fun, fast-paced 8-minute countdown of the greatest aviators in history; Meet the Racers: Featurettes introducing racers El Chupacabra, Ripslinger, Dusty and Ishani; and Exclusive Franz's Song: Produced exclusively for Blu-ray and HD Digital, this never-before-seen completely finished animated song features the German mini-car, Franz Fliegenhosen, who encourages Dusty on his flight.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is set at $39.99 and the Blu-ray 3D is $49.99.
