April 29, 2013 - Everyone knows that Oshkosh becomes the busiest airport in the world the week of EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, and that airplanes take off all the time - however, 2013 will be a first for some very special planes.

The summer release of Disney's Planes, the animated comedy adventure from above the world of the popular 2006 film Cars, has the entire aviation community buzzing! Those attending AirVenture this year will have the opportunity to experience a special preview screening at the Fly-In Theater on Friday night, August 2, one week before the movie opens in theaters nationwide. Disney's Planes will touch all who see it and help them understand the thrill and excitement that flying offers.

Director and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall says, "Disney's Planes is a great underdog story. It has a lot of heart and a message we can all use: If we can believe in ourselves, step out of our comfort zones, and get past whatever fear that's holding us back, we'd be surprised with the results. And that's exactly what happens to Dusty in this movie. He's a crop duster who's never flown above 1,000 feet, but he dreams of being the fastest air racer in the world. He has a lot of obstacles to overcome and needs to dig pretty deep to find the courage to become more than he was built to be. We're so happy to share the film with the passionate aviation community at AirVenture."

Prior to the movie, Hall will be present at the screening to talk about the making of Disney's Planes, sharing behind-the-scenes stories and secrets.

"The Fly-In Theater has become a signature event at AirVenture and Ford is delighted to host Dusty and the crew for a screening that no doubt will pack the house," said Kevin Keling, North America corporate events manager for Ford Motor Company, which each year sponsors the Fly-In Theater presentations.

The special preview screening is included with regular EAA AirVenture admission on August 2. The Fly-In Theater is an outdoor facility with a five-story-high screen and full sound system that presents aviation and other action movies for AirVenture attendees during AirVenture. It is a favorite evening activity for all Oshkosh attendees, especially those from the adjacent Camp Scholler camping area.

"AirVenture is a wonderful family event and we are absolutely thrilled to be a part of the ultimate family experience with this special screening of Disney's Planes," said Jack Pelton, EAA chairman of the board. "Dusty will be a real star of AirVenture this year in so many ways. We urge people to make plans now to join us for this special event."

Disney's Planes features a talented roster of voice talent, including Dane Cook, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Stacy Keach, and more. Disney's Planes takes off in theaters on August 9. For more information, check out the movie's website or visit its Facebook page.

About Disney's Planes
From above the world of Cars comes Disney's Planes, an action-packed 3-D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty's not exactly built for racing-and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Dusty's courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
