A week before the movie is set for wide release, Disney's Cars spinoff Planes will premiere at a fly-in theater the week of the week of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh.
Director and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall explained, “Disney’s Planes is a great underdog story. It has a lot of heart and a message we can all use: If we can believe in ourselves, step out of our comfort zones and get past whatever fear that’s holding us back, we’d be surprised with the results. And that’s exactly what happens to Dusty in this movie. He’s a crop duster who’s never flown above 1,000 feet, but he dreams of being the fastest air racer in the world. He has a lot of obstacles to overcome and needs to dig pretty deep to find the courage to become more than he was built to be. We’re so happy to share the film with the passionate aviation community at AirVenture.”
Prior to the movie, Hall will be present at the screening to talk about the making of the film, sharing behind-the-scenes stories and secrets.
“The Fly-In Theater has become a signature event at AirVenture and Ford is delighted to host Dusty and the crew for a screening that no doubt will pack the house,” said Kevin Keling, Director of Global Auto Shows & Events for Ford Motor Company, which each year sponsors the Fly-In Theater presentations.
