THE NEWS BUNDLE: Disney Moves Non-Pixar 'Cars' Spin-Off 'Planes' To Theatrical Release for August 2013

For what seems like awhile now, Disney has been hard at work developing a spin-off to their hit Cars franchise with the CGI animated Planes. Originally set for a Blu-Ray/DVD bow late next year, the film takes the talking vehicles into the skies and explores an entirely new adventure separate from the race track we’ve seen thus far. Now, however, it seems the popularity of Lightning McQueen and a very successful year for 2012 Disney Animation has led the company to rethink its strategy and has revealed we can expect another Walt Disney animated feature in theaters next year.
