Disney Planes On Blu-ray on November 19th and Our Review! #DisneyPlanesBloggers

***Disclosure: I solely received these products to review and feature. All opinions are my own.***


Hey All!

The world of Cars takes flight in Planes, Disney’s high-flying animated comedy revved up with action and adventure.  The film follows Dusty, 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, plus he’s afraid of heights.  His courage is put to the ultimate test 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.

After spreading its wings in theaters, “PLANES” soars to glorious new heights on Blu-ray on November 19th. The Blu-ray features wondrous high definition picture and sound and never-before-seen bonus features, including musical number “Franz’s Song,” deleted scenes, a behind-the-scenes featurette that follows Director Klay Hall’s personal journey during the making of the film, a look at the ten greatest aviators in history hosted by ESPN’s Colin Cowherd, and more.

I recently had the opportunity to get an advanced copy of this blu-ray and I also got the chance to head to Disney Toon Studios. I got to chat with Planes director Klay Hall and he showed us the following bonus feature that comes on the blu-ray.

It showcases how growing up his family was immersed in aviation with a father and grandfather who were pilots in the armed forces. In this touching clip he shares his passion for flying vintage planes with his own two sons.

This is just one of the great bonus features you find on the blu-ray.


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.

Klay’s Flight Plan. Follow Director Klay Hall’s personal journey during the making of “Planes” 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.

This is not only a fun blu-ray to add to your home blu-ray collection, it’s a must see for the whole family. We loved the movie PLANES in theaters and we were thrilled to have the opportunity to review the blu-ray. It’s made our movie nights all the more fun. Seeing PLANES on the blu-ray at home made it just as enjoyable as seeing it on the big screen. It not only makes the film look just as vivid, it let’s you bring the characters home with you so you can enjoy them when ever you’d like. The quality and number of bonus features makes the blu-ray worth it in itself!

To further celebrate the release of the blu-ray it’s also being released during National Aviation History Month. Throughout our nation’s history, the world of flight has given us such influential role models as the Wright Brothers, Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart, all famous aviators who proved that, no matter how high their dreams, with imagination, hard work and perseverance, anything is possible. Now, the world of Disney animation gives families everywhere a new kind of high-flying role model in Dusty, the crop dusting plane with sky-high dreams at the center of Disney’s “PLANES.” His indomitable spirit reflects that of history’s great aviators and is sure to inspire children’s imaginations to take flight this November.

Disney salutes National Aviation History Month, a month-long celebration of U.S. aviation’s storied past and through educational partnership with aviation museums across the country. During the month of November select aviation museums will feature “PLANES”-inspired learning materials designed to introduce children to the exhilarating world of flight and its most celebrated figures.
