Pixar Studios are developing a new movie called Planes, which is expected to go straight to video.

No, don’t worry, they studio haven’t lost their Midas touch. It’s all part of their plan for aCars spin-off. See, Cars 2 is revving into cinemas next summer, and the studio want to release something that would help amp up the expectation.

It makes sense, considering Cars was never a massive box office success – and both Toy Story 2 and 3 were at first targeted as DTV releases. Could Planes turn into a big screen flick?

With Pixar, anything could happen. Nothing is yet known about the story, though we imagine the usual Pixar staples will be there – perhaps a buddy relationship between two aeroplanes in an airport. (Will they go dark and tie it into 9/11? Somehow we doubt it.)

Cars 2 opens on 22 July 2011, with Monsters, Inc 2 set for 2012.
