Comedian Brad Garrett will be bringing his distinctive voice to the Cars spin-off Planes, arriving direct-to-video in Spring 2013.
He tells the Sacramento Bee:
"My next is another Pixar movie called Planes, in the line of Cars. I told them their next movie should be Luggage."
Garrett is technically wrong in calling Planes a Pixar film. While it is an extension of Pixar's franchise, Planes is being made at DisneyToon Studios and will evidently not be branded as "Disney•Pixar".
It's a good sign that Disney is bringing in talented names for the spin-off, like Garrett who has worked with Disney and Pixar before. Expect further casting announcements as we get closer to release.
