1 min read

Award-winning composer Mark Mancina produced and composed the score for Disney’s Planes. Reflecting the diverse characters and global setting featured in the story, the Planes soundtrack takes off in Australia on September 13. Mancina won a Grammy® for Best Soundtrack Album with Phil Collins for his work on Disney’s 1999 feature Tarzan.

“All of the themes are based on the background and location of the characters,” says Mancina. “Dusty is our middle-America character. Skipper is the old-school military hero. Ripslinger is too cool for school.”

Disney’s Planes also features original songs, including Nothing Can Stop Me Now, written and performed by Mark Holman and You Don’t Stop – NYC is written by Ali “Dee” Theodore and performed by Chris Classic and Alana D.

Disney’s Planes is an action-packed 3D animated comedy adventure featuring Dusty (voice of Dane Cook), a plane with dreams of competing as a high-flying air racer. But Dusty’s not exactly built for racing—and he happens to be afraid of heights. So he turns to a seasoned naval aviator who helps Dusty qualify to take on the defending champ of the race circuit. Planes takes off in Australian theaters in September 2013.

The Planes soundtrack is available for pre-order at iTunes.
