“Disney’s Planes” centers on Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing — and he happens to be afraid of heights — so he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps him qualify to take on the defending champ. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible.
