An Untitled Cars/Planes spin-off film was going to be the sixth film in the Cars franchise overall. At first, a third Planes film was initially hinted at by Carlos Alazraqui when he told the Comedy Film Nerds in March 1, 2013 that the franchise would be a trilogy, and a Disney staff member later told a writer of TAG Blog in October 2013 that the film has been put into story development. At the D23 Expo in July 14, 2017, John Lasseter stated that a film featuring a scene of two planes flying "to the edge of the atmosphere" was in development by DisneyToon Studios, with the working title of Space and was scheduled for release on April 12, 2019. However, it was suddenly removed from the schedule release on March 1, 2018. On June 28, 2018, after DisneyToon Studios was immediately shut down, the film was canceled.
