Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards to voice Bravo and Echo in Disney’s PLANES


28 March 2013

Disney’s Planes reveals its full voice cast for this summer’s all-new comedy adventure, including cameos from Top Gun stars Val Kilmer and Anthony Edwards, who reunite as the voices of fighter jets Bravo and Echo, respectively. The duo joins an all-star cast including Dane Cook, Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher, John Cleese and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

Inspired by the world of Cars and directed by Disneytoon Studios veteran and aviation enthusiast Klay Hall (King of the Hill, The Simpsons), Disney’s Planes is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure about Dusty, a big hearted crop duster and his dream of competing as a high-flying air racer—and his decidedly unfortunate fear of heights.

Voice of Echo, Anthony Edwards says “When you think of movies with planes, Top Gun usually comes up, so it is fun to be part of this film as an old trusted hand who will help protect our hero. Our naval aviators are some of the best pilots in the world. Val and I are lucky enough to get to play them twice!"

“Anthony and I were such great rivals in Top Gun, we always had so much fun on set” adds Val Kilmer who provides the voice of Bravo. “I've always thought so highly of Anthony, especially with his success on ER. So it was really great to find out that we would both being working together on Planes.”

Disney’s Planes will be taking off in 3D in cinemas across the UK from 16th August 2013.
