Planes 3, Space, also referred to as Beyond the Sky, was a planned sequel to Planes and Planes: Fire & Rescue that was set to be the third and final installment in the Planes film trilogy, a spin-off to the Cars franchise by Pixar. It was originally going to be released on April 12, 2019, but was suddenly removed from the release schedule on March 1, 2018. It was cancelled following the shutdown of DisneyToon Studios on June 28, 2018.


The film was planned to explore the future of aviation in outer space.

Why It Was Cancelled

  1. DisneyToon Studios shut down on June 28, 2018[1] (mentioned earlier).
  2. John Lasseter departed from both Disney and Pixar in December 2018
  3. Another animated film Missing Link was released on April 12th, 2019.


  • Development of Beyond the Sky was left unfinished and the film was permanently cancelled.
  • The first two Planes films became a duology.
  • Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast, which was released on December 12, 2014 in the United Kingdom and March 3, 2015 in the United States, was the final film produced and released under the DisneyToon Studios label.
  • This film along with To Protect and Serve, and Metro, are the three cancelled Cars spin-off projects.

  • Unlike the first two Planes movies which were both animated by the Indian animation studio, Prana Studios, who made all the Tinkerbell movies, Legend of Oz: Dorothy's Return, and even the first episode of The VeggieTales Show before shutting down in July 10, 2019, Beyond the Sky would have been animated by Sony Pictures Imageworks and the UK animation studio, DNEG, who are currently animating an upcoming Garfield movie, as well as Netflix and Annapurna's Nimona.
