First Look: 'Planes' takes off from 'Cars' franchise


What: “Planes”

Voice cast: Dane Cook, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Teri Hatcher and Cedric the Entertainer, as well as part-time Las Vegan Brad Garrett and former Las Vegan Colin Cowherd

Writer: Jeffrey M. Howard

Director: Klay Hall

The story: A cropduster named Dusty (Cook) is afraid of heights in this animated spinoff from Pixar’s “Cars” franchise.

The buzz: Dane Cook? Really? Still, even he shouldn’t be able to ruin the fun of this one thanks to the reunion of Anthony Edwards and Val Kilmer — “Top Gun’s” Goose and Iceman — as, naturally, fighter jets.
