The summer release of “Disney’s Planes,” the animated comedy adventure from above the world of the popular 2006 film “Cars,” has the entire aviation community buzzing. “Disney’s Planes” captures all of the thrill and excitement that that flying has to offer—plus a lot of heart and humor.

For thousands of air-show attendees at select air shows across the country, the movie will come to life with a colorful interactive display that will be loaded with activities. The display, which is a great attraction for children and adults alike, will feature stickers, tattoos, coloring sheets and more, featuring all of the characters from “Disney’s Planes.”

“‘Disney’s Planes’ is a great underdog story, said director and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall. “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 is 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 for.”

Added (Kenneth W. Hopper, Quad City Air Show President-Founder), “The Interactive Disney Display Hangar is a wonderful family attraction and we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the ultimate family experience with this very special display featuring Dusty and the characters from ‘Disney’s Planes.’ We invite those of all ages to join us for this most unique display at our 27th Air Show on June 22-23, 2013."

From above the world of “Cars” comes “Disney’s Planes,” an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar. Featuring a talented roster of voice talent, including Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus and more, “Disney’s Planes” takes off in theaters on Aug. 9, 2013.
