When I spoke with Planes director Klay Hall and producer Traci Balthazor-Flynn earlier this year it was before D23 and the announcements regarding the sequel, Planes: Fire & Rescue. Since then we've had our first look at the that sequel and this week we've even found confirmation that there's a whole trilogy in the works.
Hall and Balthazor-Flynn talked to me about being guardians for the franchise, researching Planes, the dynamics of animating planes in flight and working with comedians. The parts in which they talk about how they ensured that the spatial dynamics were correct and that the planes looked realistic in motion are particularly fascinating. Hopefully the extras on the Planes Blu-ray will go into greater detail regarding this.
Planes is released in UK cinemas today, Friday 16th August.
