Disney's Planes trailer – Click above to watch the video after the jump

Cars weren't actually the only machines with smiles in Cars. The Disney/Pixar animated feature that's about to spawn its second installment also included trucks, trains, combine harvesters and even helicopters with anthropomorphic faces. But now Disney is planning on taking things one step farther with a new movie called, simply enough, Planes.

The film's not due for release until 2013, and when it does, it will buzz the theaters and land directly on DVD. But to give us a taste of what's yet to come, Disney has released a little teaser video, hinting at the story of a prop plane trying to make it in a jet's world. Looks entertaining enough, but we'll let you judge for yourself from the Top Gun-esque trailer after the jump.

      AB, you're losing credibility here. More and more posts are reading more like commercials than true auto blogs. You'll need to change your masthead soon if you keep this up.

        I agree- enough with the Cars update. I know it's a movie with cars in it but the cars in this movie are essentially human (although in cartoon-form). So it's not really about cars. Besides the cars are hideous to look at. Don't you guys have a movie/entertainment blog that this would probably be better filtered to.

      The "Cars"... er "Transportation" series of movies is a merchandising cash cow for Pixar and Disney. They are going to milk this for all it is worth. Think of all the toys they will sell.

      There's a distinct lack of "Pixar" in the logo. Pixar is the only reason Cars is good. Without Pixar, the likelihood of this spin-off being good is minimal.

        White Zombie actually, but yeah, I was thinking the exact same thing.

      "Trains" might be next. I'll be waiting for "Bicycles.".

        How about branching out all at once with an animated take on "Planes, Trains & Automobiles"? :)

          I wonder how they would handle the famous rental car counter scene. "I want a darn car. Right darn now, gosh golly!"

        I image "Trains" would be like the Thomas the Tank Engine with less stop motion and more 3D graphics.

      Not all straight to DVD Disney cartoons are necessarily terrible. I remember Aladdin and Prince of Thieves was pretty good from what I remember.
