Australia has never held a movie premiere of this calibre. 'Planes' is the latest movie from Disney Studios, and kids from across Australia will be given the opportunity to be part of this momentous premiere. Qantas will give 254 passengers the opportunity to attend the premiere on a Boeing 767 jet, while flying at 30,000 feet on the 7th of September 2013.
Planes is an action packed 3D animated comedy adventure following the story of Dusty, a crop duster with dreams of competing as a high flying air racer. However, there's one problem; Dusty isn't built for racing and is afraid of heights. He turns to Skipper, a seasoned naval aviator to help him qualify.
Australia's own Jessica Marais will voice Rochelle in a localised version of the feature for Australia and NZ.
The story also features Rochelle, a confident and capable Australian rally champ, proudly displaying a kangaroo painted on her side. She got her start running mail to small towns in Tasmania, and developed a knack for fast travel that ultimately inspired her to give air racing a try.

Qantas wants the unique premiere to combine storytelling with fun, innovation and a once in a lifetime experience, that reflects the core essence of Disney and offer the best family entertainment in the skies. Qantas will also be working with Disney to provide lots of activities around the film.
