Disney’s Planes Set for Theatrical Release on August 9, 2013

From Collider:

It’s officially official: Disney’s Cars spinoff Planes is getting a theatrical release after all. Though the film was initially set for a direct-to-DVD release, hints started surfacing this past summer that Disney was considering releasing the film theatrically instead, as John Lasseter had grown particularly fond of the pic. Today, Disney announced that Planes will indeed open in theaters on August 9, 2013. That puts it opposite Neill Blomkamp’s sci-fi film Elysium and the Jennifer Aniston/Jason Sudeikis comedy We’re the Millers. (Cinema, Planes)

I had zero interest in this when it was a direct-to-DVD movie, and I still have no interest now. I doubt it'll be any good.

Can't say I'm excited either....
... I really liked the first Cars. Didnt care AT ALL for the 2nd Cars movie (crap), and although I feel Pixar is a great studio, it seems the Cars movies were mainly made to push the merchandise, which will be the same for this spin-off.

Disappointing to see Pixar working at this, while they could be making a new The Incredibles movie instead.

Actually Pixar isn't doing anything with it. Disney is producing it, not Pixar...Yet another reason I'm not interested.

That's actually very good news to hear.....
... that means it will just be another disappointing Disney-flick, which we've grown used to, instead of a disappointing Pixar film, which almost never happens :)

That said, I LOVED Tangled (Rapunzel), so there's always that hope that Disney starts delivering the goods again.

This is the reason Pixar wanted Disney to have no rights to their movies without them making it. It's a stupid idea. Direct to DVD would be fine for little kids, but a theater release? This is just going to hurt Disney's image when it bombs.

Which is even worse considering how awesome Wreck-it Ralph was.

Hopefully it doesn't crash.

The first Cars was really good and one of my favourite pixar films, the complete opposite can be said for the second. I have a feeling that this, quality wise, will be much closer to the second Cars than the first.
