Blu-Ray Review: Disney Planes Blu-Ray Combo Pack!


What happens when you explore the world above the world of Cars? You get Planes! The newest movie from DisneyToon Studios!

We are introduced to Dusty Crophopper who dreams of racing and gets his chance to participate in one of the greatest races in the world! But Dusty isn't really built for speed and he is also afraid of heights. Along the way he is supported by his friends, gets mentored by an old war plane and makes some new friends.  They all help Dusty find the courage to overcome the odds.

Video Quality:

The video quality is what you have come to expect from a Disney blu-ray! Crisp and vibrant colors combined with amazing detail! You can see all the textures that provides for a more lifelike experience! Some great wind effects that come off of each plane adds to the sense of flight! You would be hard pressed to know that this spin-off is not made by the folks in Emeryville!

Audio Quality:

The audio is also up Disney's high standards of quality! The dialogue is perfectly clear! The sounds of the planes really bring you into the racing experience! The rear channels are just as active as the front channels here! With planes flying all over the sound field, you feel as if you are in the middle of all the races!

Bonus Features:

  • Exclusive Musical Scene: Franz's Song (HD, 3 minutes): Director Klay Hall and producer Traci Balthazor-Flynn introduce a finished deleted sequence that features the tiny Franz that was cut a t the last minute.
  • Klay's Flight Plan (HD, 16 minutes): This feature showcases Hall's love of airplanes and his personal connection to the film, which he shares with his two sons while taking a look at some of the planes that inspired some of the film's characters.
  • Deleted Scenes (HD, 8 minutes): Two unfinished deleted scenes are shown here: a training montage and a Taj Mahal sequence that was reworked.
  • Meet the Racers (HD, 7 minutes): You get to meet four of the racing planes in the movie: El Chu, Ripslinger, Dusty and Ishani.
  • Top 10 Fliers (HD, 6 minutes): Quickly learn about the top ten real-life fliers of all time.

Overall Thoughts:

A film, that while borrowing heavily from the first Cars film, is still very entertaining. The video and audio presentations are top notch here! The supplements are few but for a film that was suppose to be a direct-to-video only, they aren't bad. A good Holiday gift for your kids! (#DisneyPlanes)

Now Available on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD
