The last time a Pixar movie made the leap from a planned straight-to-video release to the theatres was with Toy Story 2. So, there’s reason to be somewhat optimistic about Disney’s Planes, a new spinoff set within the world of Cars. Of course, the last time we visited Cars, it was the less-than-stellar Cars 2, so it’s not like the bar is set terribly high. That said, Pixar is Pixar, and even at their worst, they’re still consistently better than any other animation house.
Look! Up in the sky! A new Disney’s Planes poster!
