Two new trailers have landed in the world of animation: The saucy teaser for Fox's "Rio 2," which features some raucously rump-shaking birdies, and the wordless trailer for Disney's "Planes" (a takeoff from the "Cars" franchise), which highlights the contraptions of the title flying through all manner of exotic locales.

Watch below.

"Planes" isn't a Pixar production like its "Cars" brethren but rather from DisneyToon Studios. It was originally set to be released as a direct-to-video film, but received such positive response in the production process that it was upgraded to a Disney theatrical release for August 9. 

"Rio 2" isn't expected until April 2014.
