    Disney’s ‘Cars’ Spin-Off ‘Planes’ Getting A Theatrical Release Next Summer

    Pixar Plans 'Toy Story' Short In Front Of 'The Muppets' & Direct-To-DVD 'Cars' Spinoff 'Planes'

    Diluting the brand much? One of the great things about Pixar when they first came onto the animation scene is that they abandoned the very practices that watered down the once mighty Disney.
