Disney's Movie "Planes

Disney’s Planes Sure to Be a Family Favorite

As you know we’re a very Disney family.  So every time there is an announcement for a new Disney movie we get a bit excited.  Finding out that Disney was making Planes was more than just a bit exciting.  We knew that if Cars and Cars 2 were any indicator, that Planes would knock our socks off.

This one is especially exciting for the whole family, as Austin (A2) really wants to train to be a pilot after graduation.  Planes will be right up his alley!  And hubby suggested that this could be a great first theater movie for Bubbles.  She adores Mater and Lightning McQueen and we think she’ll love these characters, too.

Dusty from the new Disney movie "Planes"

Speaking of characters – the voice talent for this film is great.  The full cast and their voice stars are:

  • Dane Cook brings his charisma as the voice of Dusty, a plane that while not built for racing, has high-flying dreams.
  • Stacy Keach provides the voice of Skipper, a reclusive old Navy Corsair who takes Dusty’s training to new heights.
  • Brad Garrett lends his voice to fuel truck Chug, Dusty’s buddy, coach and biggest fan.
  • Teri Hatcher brings life and charm to the say-it-like-it-is mechanic Dottie.
  • Cedric the Entertainer as Leadbottom, a puttering old biplane who has no time for Dusty’s far-fetched flights of fancy.
  • Julia Louis-Dreyfus lends her voice to Rochelle, a tough and confident racer who is the pride of the Great White North.
  • John Cleese is the voice of Bulldog, the oldest and arguably wisest racer on the circuit.
  • Carlos Alazraqui brings to life the intensely charming El Chupacabra, a racer with more dramatic flair than is recommended at high altitudes.
  • Priyanka Chopra voices the exotic, mysterious and ruthless Ishani, the reigning Pan-Asian champion from India.
  • Roger Craig Smith voices world champion racer Ripslinger—wings down, the biggest name in air racing—and he knows it.
  • Gabriel Iglesias provides the voices of both Ned and Zed, two not-so-sharp saboteurs who work for Ripslinger.
  • Val Kilmer provides the voice of Bravo, a member of the Jolly Wrenches and a fan of air racing.
  • Anthony Edwards is the voice of Echo, a member of the Jolly Wrenches and a fan of air racing.
  • Colin Cowherd gives play-by-play coverage as Colin Cowling, an affable blimp and an eye-in-the-sky reporter for the Racing Sports Network.
  • Sinbad brings to life Roper, an irascible race official pitty full of sly remarks and colorful commentary.
  • Oliver Kalkofe provides the voice of meek German minicar Franz and his brazen airborne alter ego Fliegenhosen.
  • Brent Musburger brings Brent Mustangburger, the excitable 1964½ Ford Mustang sports broadcasting icon, back to the big screen.

I may or may not have had a small crush in high school on Val Kilmer, so seeing his name on the list made me smile.  I also could listen to Brad Garrett and John Cleese talk all day long, so they are great choices.

Which Planes character do you think will be your favorite?

  1. I’m just hoping it doesn’t have the political message like Cars 2. :{

  2. So excited they picked Gabriel Iglesias! He’s definitely one of my favorites.
