Brad Garrett cast in 'Planes'

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.

Still dislike this whole spin-off thing, even if Pixar isn't directly involved.

DisneyToon, huh? Not Pixar Canada? Guess they've got to do something after the dumping of all those DTV sequels they had lined up.

Getting Brad Garrett on board is a great move. It brings a bit of legitimacy to the project. I might check it out now.

Hmm...is Brad Garret the main character or not? Dusty or whatever he was named?

I really hope "planes" turns out well, because even though it's not technically a Pixar movie, a lot of people are going to think it is...

Disney destroyed their animation legacy with direct to video. Now they will destroy Pixar.
