In reference to Walt Disney's famed Mickey Mouse cartoon from 1928, I started a topic on the forums a few months ago in regards to an upcoming animated project from DisneyToon Studios entitled "Planes", which is a continuation of the vehicle characters theme we've come to know through Pixar's "Cars". We can expect to see Planes in the Spring of 2013.
I've featured several versions of airplane characters that have preceded the Disney project in this topic on the AN Forums which I'm sure folks will find enjoyable, along with a just released teaser for Disney's Planes.
Of all the versions of plane characters showcased in the topic, I'd say that the most intriguing interpretation of the concept is a short film created by animation students in China a few years ago. Uploaded to YouTube in 2008, it's very well done and quite surreal. I'm posting it here for our readers to enjoy.
