New " Planes " Trailer Released, It Looks Really Good... And Why The Movie Might Also Be A Trailer For A New Attraction Coming in 2016 At DCA and WDW Epcot !


Disney released at last a real trailer for the upcoming "Planes" movie and i wonder why it took them so long to show us something better than the previous "Top Gun" style shots.  Now it looks not only much better than expected but you will also understand why John Lasseter and Bob Iger decided to release Planes in theater instead than directly on Dvd or Blu Ray.

You can watch the trailer below and as you will see we learn more about the storyline.
Apparently there will be a planes race around the world...


...which will lead the different planes to fly over many countries...


...like India and the famous Taj Mahal...


...to Vietnam's Halong Bay ( or it might be a China landscape )...


...to the north american national parks...


...or even New York.


The animation was done by Disney Studios - not Pixar - and looks really good, so that's a good point. But what is interesting in this planes race around the world is that i wonder if it's not also a way to introduce the new and long awaited  "Soaring over the world'" movie which is not yet officially announced but is in fact scheduled to replace Soarin' Over California at DCA and Epcot in 2016, one year after it will make its debut at Shanghaî Disneyland Adventureland under the title "Soaring Over The Horizon".

And, as i've been told recently that the Soarin' attraction might change its name and become a "Planes" attraction - although the ride system should remain the same - you understand why i make a link between this excellent trailer in which we see planes literally "flying over the horizon", and the Soaring ride itself...

That said, may be there is also another kind of "Planes" ride coming as Mark Hickson, former Imagineer, revealed on his excellent site Disney by Mark that he has been told by an insider source that the new WDI patent called "Twister Ride System" would be used for a "Planes" ride. You can see more patent sketches as well as an explanation of this twister ride system on Mark's site HERE.



I'm sure we will know more about all this pretty soon, may be at the next D23 Expo in three months.

Anyway, in the meantime here is the Planes trailer, hope you'll enjoy it!

Changing the excellent Soarin' attraction into ANOTHER character based ride, this one based on a direct-to-video-oh-no-we-can-make-more-money-in-cinemas-movie would really end my enthusiasm for Disney.

I really hope it is something you made up yourself, because this would be bad, really bad!!!

For the movie itself, I couldn't care less about a movie...

Looks decent - I just hope that people will see the difference between something like this (a small movie produced for relatively little money in a low-wage country by an outside contractor (Prana)), and a Pixar movie. Eisner and his suits often claimed that the audience was too stupid to see the difference between a feature film and the cheap sequels they produced back then. Now the Prana movies are way better than the cheap sequels (Pocahontas II, stuff like that), I actually quite like the Tinkerbell movies - but I do hope this does not make too much money, because otherwise, why would they spend 200 mio plus for Pixar movies in the future...

I try very very hard to be positive and optimistic about new Disney attractions. With that said, I don't want Soarin' to become about Planes. That would break my little heart.

I'm also completely against turning Soarin into a Planes themed attraction; nevertheless, this ride system looks really good!
Let's wait and see how they use it...
