Planes is a classic underdog story, following Dusty the crop duster on his quest to compete with the fastest planes in the sky in the greatest around-the-world race ever. Of course there are obstacles, and a bad guy, and friends new and old to help him along. Dusty has two big problems though - he's built for farm work, not speed, and he's afraid of heights. Oops!
Will Dusty win the race? Will he even finish? You'll have to watch the film to find out, but rest assured that there's a great message here about overcoming our fears and being the best that we can be. And the importance of friends and sticking together is a prominent theme as well.
Disney's Planes would make a great present for the kids or families on your holiday gift list. It's a great, funny, and entertaining movie, with excellent lessons for the little ones. Plus, when you give a movie, you are giving the gift of time together snuggled on the couch enjoying a shared experience. Gotta love that!
