If there’s one movie that kids will be sure to want to watch over the Christmas break, it’s Disney Planes! Available now on Blu-ray and DVD, this much-anticipated movie is a great choice for children of all ages and I was so excited when we received our own copy to review. Here’s a brief synopsis:
The World of Cars takes flight in Planes, Disney’s high-flying animated comedy revved up with action and adventure. Join Dusty, a crop duster with sky-high dreams and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take on the world’s fastest flyers in the greatest air race ever. Dusty has a huge heart but two big problems…..he’s not exactly build for speed, plus he’s afraid of heights. His courage is put to the ultimate test as this unlikely hero aims higher than he ever imagined. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built for – and the inspiration to soar.
My boys were as happy as I was to see Disney Planes arrive at our house and sat down to watch it together after school. Any movie that involves racing is an instant win with Zackary, and he loved the story of Dusty Crophopper’s mission to compete in the Wings Across the World race. Benjamin isn’t as much of a racing fanatic as his brother, but he enjoyed the movie as well and liked some of the exciting flight scenes especially.
There’s nothing especially original or overwhelming about Disney Planes for adults, but it’s still a fun, feel-good movie to watch together as a family and kids are sure to enjoy the adventures of Dusty and his friends. Pick up a copy to enjoy this holiday season and get ready for high-flying fun with Disney Planes!
