|Can a crop duster win the Wings Around the World race his way?|
Dusty the crop duster is tired of flying back and forth over cornfields. In this Disney 3D animated feature directed by Klay Hall, he wants to be a racer plane in the Wings Around the World competition. “Maybe, just maybe, I can do more than I was built for,” he tells himself. Luckily, Dusty has the support of a small circle of friends in the farm community, including a fuel truck who serves as his coach, a creative mechanic, and an old Navy Corsair who volunteers to train him.
He qualifies for the race but has a problem: he’s afraid of heights. Can he do the race his way, flying close to the ground?
There are plenty of thrills in this family film, which puts forth collaboration as a value to emulate over winning. It also honors the courage and determination it takes to step into your own dreams and make them happen (Walt Disney Pictures, PG — some mild action, rude humor).
