Disney's heartwarming family comedy, Planes, revved up with high-flying action and adventure, landed in homes and mass retailers nationwide on November 19th. This endearing underdog story about a crop dusting plane named Dusty with sky-high dreams is now available in Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On-Demand featuring a cargo hold full of exciting bonus features. Guaranteeing hours of fun, Disney's Planes Blu-ray Combo Pack is the perfect gift for “ladies and gentle-planes” of all ages this holiday season!
I received Disney's Planes Blu-ray Combo Pack to facilitate this review, and I loved it so much that I downloaded the digital copy onto my iPad so that I can watch it whenever I want! I love that Disney movies allow you to download a digital copy so that you can take your favorite Disney movies with you everywhere you go!
If you haven't seen Disney's Planes yet, don't fret. I never had an opportunity to go see it in the movie theater either and just saw it for the first time when my copy arrived in the mail! You can see an 8-minute peek of the film here: http://youtu.be/WBi4FWOgNPc.
Disney's Planes was along the same lines of Disney's Cars, which we really loved too. Dusty is a crop duster with big dreams of becoming a racing plane (sound familiar?). While Dusty is sweet as can be, he's not exactly built for speed, being a crop duster and all. Oh yeah, and he's afraid of heights!
I won't give too much away, but rest assured, Dusty rises to the occasion, with a little help from his friends! I loved the entire movie; it had the perfect blend of sweet, emotional parts and hilarious comedy too!
