Disney clearly has the need for speed! Disney's Planes, the brand-new Cars spinoff film, flies into theaters in 3D on Aug. 9, and Top Gun stars Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards are adding some high-flying flair to the just-revealed voice cast.
With a friendly nod to their famous big-screen fighter-pilot personas, Kilmer and Edwards provide the respective voices of Bravo and Echo, members of the Jolly Wrenches and fans of air racing in the action-packed, comedic tale of Dusty (voiced by Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. Dusty's not exactly built for racing – and he's also afraid of heights – so he turns to a seasoned naval aviator (played by Stacy Keach) to learn how to take on the defending champ of the race circuit.
Rounding out the talented voice cast for Disney's Planes is Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, Cedric the Entertainer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Cleese, Carlos Alazraqui, Priyanka Chopra, Roger Craig Smith, Gabriel Iglesias, Colin Cowherd, Sinbad, Oliver Kalkofe and Brent Musburger.
