Teri Hatcher, Dane Cook, and others lend their voices for the upcoming animated film 'Planes.' The Teri Hatcher and John Cleese film follows Dusty, a dust cropper who suffers from a fear of heights.
Disney/Pixar’s Cars was a lucrative title for the joint studios (despite a so-so critical response), which explains why that computer-animated feature gave rise to a feature-length sequel and multiple short films. DisneyToon Studios is behind the newest spinoff for the franchise, in the form of the upcoming Planes.
Planes takes place in the Cars-verse – a world where anthropomorphic vehicles are the dominant species – and revolves around one Dusty Crophopper (voiced by Dane Cook), a humble dust cropper with big dreams of competing in (and winning) a famous aerial race. The only problem? He suffers from a crippling fear of heights that prevents him from flying any higher than… well, high enough to dust crops, basically.
