Crowd Flies High at Disney’s ‘Planes’ Premiere

Cast members show up in force to support new Disney film

Planes” helmer Klay Hall introduced the film to the El Capitan premiere crowd saying, “Thank you for flying Disney and enjoy the flight because it was a grand adventure getting here.”

The Aug. 5 premiere, which shut down Hollywood Boulevard, was a grand adventure especially for the kiddie crowd who was showered with “Planes” swag courtesy of Target. The pre-party featured carnival games, a flight simulator, inflatable obstacle course and crafts with guests like Jason Priestley trying to keep two kids equally happy with who got which toy.

An unusually high number of cast members showed up with Hall saying, “What is great about this cast is that they were all in from the very beginning.”  Dane Cook, Teri HatcherPriyanka Chopra, Cedric the Entertainer, Stacy Keach and Anthony Edwards avoided the blistering heat of the street party and wisely hung out in the shade by the theater’s entrance comingling with Disney exex including Alan Horn.

Exec producer John Lasseter, in his aviator themed shirt, photo bombed a two-shot of Hatcher and Chopra declaring himself “the luckiest man in Hollywood.”

The film centers on a crop dusting plane who is afraid of heights. When asked about her own phobias, Hatcher said, “Life offers you opportunities to go outside of your comfort zone and I try to approach it like that.” Hall said one of his biggest fears came about the the day Lasseter asked him to create a new cast of characters and a new world. “I was kind of intimidated by that phone call, but also very confident. ” As a kid he was afraid of getting up and speaking in front of people, however, “you grow from that sort of thing and are surprised by the results,” he added.

Kevin Nealon and his moppet guests rocked the “aviator chic” suggested dress, while Alyssa Milano and son Milo, who was attending his first premiere, spent ample time with the games.
