At this point most of us are probably aware that Disney is bringing a film called Planes to theaters in August. This is advertised as being “from above the world of Cars.” In other words, Disney saw an opportunity to make a bunch more money, especially in merchandise sales, by building the universe created in Pixar’s two Cars movies.

What’s the real harm? Sure, those of us with small children will likely find ourselves buying Planes action figure, but that just gives us a reprieve from buying Transformers or Lego toys for a while. And we may have to sit through an hour and a half of Flying Cars, but at least our kids will be enjoying themselves. »
