As part of a marketing deal announced on Wednesday between American and Walt Disney Studios, the Fort Worth-based carrier's new aircraft which entered into service earlier this year will be part of Disney's Planes movie.
The animated movie, which will be released on August 9, will have a plane named Tripp which was modeled after American's Boeing 777-300ER which has the new livery American unveiled in January.
"Disney is a global family brand and working with them gives us a fun opportunity to connect with families who know and love the iconic American Airlines brand," said American vice president of marketing Rob Friedman.
This is not the first time American has teamed up with Hollywood. In 2009, the carrier was prominently featured in the George Clooney film, Up in the Air, where the main character attempts to reach the 10 million frequent flier mark. Some scenes were filmed in American terminals and Admirals Clubs.
