UPDATED: Disney has set a wide release date for its animated feature Planes for August 9, 2013. The pic is a semi-Cars spinoff about airplanes and centers on Dusty, a cropduster, who Jon Cryer was originally going to voice before that fell through. The film had been slated to be a direct-to-video release here when it was first previewed at last year’s D23 Expo, but obviously that strategy obviously has shifted. Klay Hall, who comes from a family of aviators, is directing. Planes is joined on the release-date schedule by the Matt Damon-Jodie Foster sci-fi pic Elysium, which Sony recently shifted to the summer slot; and Warner Bros’ drug-smuggling road-trip comedy We’re The Millers, starring Jennifer Aniston and Jason Sudeikis.
