I think I’m still kind of on cloud 9 after being out in California to attend both the premieres for Thor: The Dark World and Delivery Man in Hollywood. Going through the photos and memories I captured, I have to say that visiting the Disney Toon Studios was definitely one of the highlights! Disney welcomed us bloggers there for a preview of their latest home entertainment release, PLANES!
Just to refresh your memory, I actually visited the Disney Too Studios back in June to preview PLANES before its theatrical release in August! While there, I was able to chat with Klay Hall, the director, and Traci Balthazor-Flynn, the producer, about the film. What an experience! It’s not every day little ole me get to interview a Hollywood director. I was psyched when I learned that we would get to interview them again and catch up on what they have planned for the Blu-ray/DVD release of PLANES.
Klay’s father was a pilot with the Navy, and his grandfather was an aviator as well. When he talks about PLANES, you can tell that he’s been a lifelong aviation enthusiast! Growing up he often took trips to the air field to see the planes. As an illustrator, Klay always enjoyed drawing airplanes, even at an early age. There is no question that this love for aviation was definitely a driving force to bring PLANES to the big screen.
