Taking a break from Wisteria Lane, Desperate Housewives’ Teri Hatcher, who provides the voice of forklift truck Dottie in Disney‘s latest animated adventure Planes, popped over for a special preview screening of the film yesterday at Leicester Square’s Odeon cinema.
She was also accompanied to the London premiere by Jake Wood (EastEnders), Linda Robson (Birds of a Feather) and Britain’s Got Talent finalists Gabz and Pre-Skool.
Commenting on her role, Hatcher said
“I love being a part of animated films and specifically Disney movies. I watched them when I was a kid, I watched them with my daughter when she was a kid, we still watch them. They tell such wonderful, fulfilling stories and the animation is so wonderful, so yeah, being a part of something where you think ‘my grandkids are going to watch this movie some day’, that’s a good thing.”
Planes will be touching down in the UK this August 16 but in the meantime sit back and enjoy our in-flight featurette including footage of the event, and a brief interview with Teri Hatcher.
From above the world of “Cars” comes “Disney’s Planes,” 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. Dusty’s courage is put to the ultimate test as he aims to reach heights he never dreamed possible, giving a spellbound world the inspiration to soar.
