Remember the glory days when Pixar stood as the antithesis of the sequel churning, money hungry folks like Disney and DreamWorks? Well those times are long gone. With "Cars 2" on the way, and "Monsters University" on the horizon, Pixar movies are now brands that need to be exploited, and now under the Disney banner, the slow descent to banality has begun.

Remember the glory days when Pixar stood as the antithesis of the sequel churning, money hungry folks like Disney and DreamWorks? Well those times are long gone. With "Cars 2" on the way, and "Monsters University" on the horizon, Pixar movies are now brands that need to be exploited, and now under the Disney banner, the slow descent to banality has begun.

Earlier in the year it was revealed a "Cars" spinoff entitled -- wait for it -- "Planes" was on the way and now the first teaser trailer has arrived. And yeah, it feels like something that is ready to go straight-to-DVD. Anyway, in case you're interested, the plot will revolve around Dusty, a “small town dreamer” who, despite his fear of heights (tough break for a plane), longs to enter the most epic around-the-world air race. With the help and support of a bunch of new characters, Dusty will face his greatest fear and challenge. Hooray.

We suppose it'll make parents happy because it will give them something else to show their kids and keep them calm for 90 minutes, but it's pretty understandable why the word "Pixar" doesn't appear on this thing. Anyway, it won't get here until spring of 2013 so there's still time to abandon this dumb idea (right?). Watch the teaser below. [via /Film]
