Disney Pixar Planes, Planes 2 & Toy Story TV Specials

If you have not heard, PLANES has moved from June 2013 to Fall 2013.

Which makes sense. I doubt they need more time on the film though I’m sure it’s nice to have extra time but I think the timing makes more sense. Merchandise won’t have to fight the summer theater box office titles (PLANES is straight to home video/DVD/Blu Ray) and dollars already spent there. In September/October, it’s less crowded to get attention.

But apparently Disney/John Lasseter likes what he sees as Big Screen Animation is reporting they are already starting on a sequel. They also report we’ll be getting a Toy Story TV special this fall and next year …

Pixar is developing two original, 22-minute television specials starring the characters of Toy Story. They will air (presumably on either ABC or the Disney Channel) in October 2013 and Spring 2014.

    This sounds like the toy story specials could turn out real nice. let’s hope. I sure hope planes is good enough for a sequel…

    Although I am excited for Planes I wouldn’t start a sequel just yet if it were me in charge.

    I will collect the planes as long as they are at least part diecast metal and not 100% plastic. My first diecast was an airplane. I think these planes have the potential of being really cool. Barney Stormin’ and Al Oft are two of my favorite Cars! I love the Goodyear Blimp! I get to see it up close all the time because one of the Goodyear tire plants is within an hour of where I live, and they are always flying it around.

    The movies, more and more, are vehicles to sell the merchandise.

  • John in Missouri says:

    I think I’m more excited for the Toy Story specials than I am for Planes and its sequel.

    • Jack says:

      Yep I agree. The kids and I live all the Toy Story films and shorts. I am not really excited about Planes and definetely not collecting anyway.
      Perhaps the Planes toys will be sought after by aviation enthusiasts but I can’t see them being that popular among kids. How long can they pretend to fly toy planes around? Nothing like the beloved cars that roll around, ride down ramps, crash, race and are just plain fun to play with.
