Disney Planes the movie is due for release in summer 2013 and is best described as a safe extension of the Cars formula. Plucky colourful characters work their way through set scenarios and we all learn something along the way - the principles of Cars remain but it’s all in the sky - it really is that simple. The movie, to be released in the UK at the same time as the game (how is that for marketing!) was originally intended to be a straight to DVD/Blu-ray release but it did so well in the early rounds of focus testing that it got bumped up to a full theatrical release. Whether or not a game was in the works before this happened is unclear but Planes the game has the feel of a rushed movie tie-in, serviceable but ultimately will only appeal to the youngest demographic and even then, not for very long.
