The world of Cars takes flight in Planes, Disney's high-flying animated comedy revved up with action and adventure. Join Dusty, a crop duster with sky-high dreams and a once-in-a-lifetime chance to take on the world's fastest flyers in the greatest air race ever. Dusty has a huge heart but two big problems...he's not exactly built for speed, plus he's afraid of heights. His courage is put to the ultimate test as this unlikely hero aims higher than he ever imagined. With a little help from his friends, Dusty finds the courage to be more than he was built forâ€”and the inspiration to soar.
Dusty (Dane Cook)
Dusty is a plane with high hopesâ€”literally. Crop duster by trade, this single-prop plane sees himself soaring alongside his high-flying heroes in an international race. The fact that heâ€™s not really built for competitive racing doesnâ€™t deter him from pursuing his dreamâ€”but his fear of heights just might. With a little help from his friendsâ€”and a WWII vet with wisdom to spareâ€”Dusty takes off on an adventure of a lifetime, going prop-to-prop with champions while daring to reach heights he never imagined possible. Skipper Riley (Stacy Keach)
A reclusive old Navy Corsair, Skipper was an ace flier and top instructor of the esteemed Jolly Wrenches squadron until an incident during a combat mission took him off the front lines and left him grounded for life. These days, Skipper keeps to himself, but his quiet existence is turned upside down when an ambitious and persistent Dusty solicits Skipperâ€™s aerial expertiseâ€”and gets a few life lessons in the process. But Skipperâ€”whoâ€™s never really come to terms with his pastâ€”finds that he has a few things to learn, too, and while coaching Dusty to fly faster and smarter, the teacher becomes the student. Leadbottom (Cedric the Entertainer)
Leadbottom is a puttering old biplane and a grumbling taskmaster, a real â€œtank-half-emptyâ€ kind of guy. As the proprietor of Vitaminamulch, a specialâ€”albeit putridâ€”blend of vitamins, minerals, and mulch that works miracles when sprayed on crops, Leadbottom has no time for Dustyâ€™s far-fetched flights of fancy. There are too many crops to spray and not enough hours in the day to spray them. For Leadbottom, itâ€™s work first, then â€¦ well, more work. Dottie (Teri Hatcher)
Dottie is a forklift who co-owns and operates Chug and Dottieâ€™s Fill â€™n Fly service station. As Dustyâ€™s practical and say-it-like-it-is friendâ€”not to mention his ace mechanicâ€”Dottie hopes to keep his high-flying hopes grounded in reality: Dusty isnâ€™t built to race and chasing his dream is downright dangerous. No matter what he decides, however, Dottie will always have his back. Chug (Brad Garrett)
Fuel truck Chug is a guyâ€™s guy. He works hard as co-owner of Chug and Dottieâ€™s Fill â€™n Fly service stationâ€”and plays hard indulging in his own fuel from time to time. He has a big personality and is a bold supporter of Dustyâ€™s high-flying endeavors. Indeed, heâ€™s not only Dustyâ€™s buddy, heâ€™s his coach and biggest fan. And if Chug canâ€™t help Dusty reach new heights, heâ€™ll find someone who can. TEAM RIPSLINGER
:Ripslinger (Roger Craig Smith)
With more wins than he can count and an abundance of fans, Ripslinger is wings-down the biggest name in air racingâ€”and he knows it. But despite skyâ€™s-the-limit funding and state-of-the-art equipment, the world champion still doesnâ€™t play fairâ€”especially when it comes to a small-town plane with zero racing experience. Dusty doesnâ€™t belong in Ripslingerâ€™s sport and his mere presence makes the proâ€™s fuel boil. And if Dustyâ€™s inexperience doesnâ€™t take him out of the race, Ripslingerâ€™s vast empire includes a couple of underhanded sidekicks to take care of business. Ned and Zed (Gabriel Iglesias)
Team Ripslingerâ€™s bombastic racers Ned and Zed specialize in sabotage. Lacking the skills to actually outrace the competition, they simply eliminate it, propelling boss Ripslinger to victory every single time. Zed, a rowdy and reckless flier, and Ned, a strange bird himself, may not be the sharpest props in the hangar, but they have figured out how to draft off Ripslingerâ€™s fame. El Cupacabra (Carlos Alazraqui)
The intensely charming El Chupacabra is a legend in Mexico (just ask him). Powered by his passion for racing (not to mention the elusive Rochelle), this caped Casanova is anything but low-keyâ€”his booming voice and charismatic presence are as big as his oversized engine. His cohorts arenâ€™t really sure what is truth and what is delusion when it comes to El Chu, but one thing is beyond doubt: he races with a whole lot of heart and more dramatic flair than is recommended at high altitudes. Rochelle (Julia Louis-Dreyfus)
Rochelle is a tough racer and the pride of the Great White North. Always confident and capable, she got her start running mail to small towns in Quebec, picking up home remedies for mechanical maladies along the way. She also developed a knack for fast travel that ultimately inspired her to give air racing a try. Rochelle never looked back (this competitive contender doesnâ€™t need to). She is relentlessly pursued by charmer El Chupacabra, but steadfast Rochelle is much too focused on winning the race to return his affections. Bulldog (John Cleese)
Bulldog has been racing longer than every other racer on the circuit. As the oldest and arguably wisest, he remembers a time before GPS, when real racers trusted their gyros and navigated by the stars. When it comes to racing, it boils down to two qualities, says Bulldog: good flying and sportsmanship. Period. While the competition secretly wonders if the aging plane is past his prime, he flies his way onto the leader board again and again, proving that this Bulldog has lost none of his bite. Ishani (Priyanka Chopra)
The reigning Pan-Asian champion from India, Ishani is easy on the eyes, but ruthless in the skies. Thanks to her high-speed competitiveness and notable talent, she has amassed more than a billion loyal fansâ€”including one rookie racer who turns to her for guidance. Exotic and mysterious, Ishani is full of surprises, but always has her eye on the prize.
