Press release:

BURBANK, Calif. – February 17, 2011 – The sky’s the limit as DisneyToon Studios proudly
announces PLANES – a spectacular, full-length CG animated comedy action adventure movie
for everyone set high above the world of CARS. PLANES will introduce an entirely original and
hilarious crew of daredevils from every corner of the globe and draws inspiration from the
immensely popular Disney•Pixar’s CARS world. PLANES will arrive on Blu-ray™ and DVD in
Spring 2013.

“We had such a great time exploring the world of ‘Cars’ over the course of two films, so it
seemed only natural for us to see where our imaginations would take us in a film where planes
were the main characters.   By expanding the Cars world, ‘Planes’ gave us a whole new set of
fun-filled situations and a great opportunity to introduce some fantastic new characters,”
commented John Lasseter, Chief Creative Officer, Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.
“The team at DisneyToon Studios has done such an amazing job creating a heartfelt story filled
with great comedy, adventure, and emotion.  I know audiences are going to love taking off into
the wild blue yonder with these daredevil characters, as they experience a whole new kind of
animated adventure.”
