Hatcher's flying hopes for Planes 2

Teri Hatcher has confirmed she will reprise her voice role in the Planes sequel, but admitted she doesn't know how big her part will be.

The Desperate Housewives star lends her voice to forklift truck Dottie in the Disney animated film, alongside Dane Cook as cropduster Dusty and John Cleese as British navy airplane Bulldog.

"I'm in it. I don't know the complete story or how much I'm going to be in it - maybe not as much as Dusty, of course. So I don't know yet," she said.

The 48-year-old actress added: "My hope is that Dottie would somehow get herself onto Dusty's wing and go everywhere with him, but I don't think that happens."

Planes tells the story of Dusty's dream of flying in a race.

Teri, who previously voiced Coraline's mother in Coraline, said she enjoys voice-work because it is "fun".

"I love it every time because you get to work with a different set of creative people, people who are passionate enough and visionaries to want to work on a project for four to seven years before it's finished," she said.

"It opens up a creative place in you, and it's a lot of fun. My reaction when I first saw Dottie was, 'She's so cute!' I don't know what I was expecting but all that knocking around she does with her arms is just so cute."

The actress also said she could relate to the film's message about overcoming your fears to achieve your dreams. "I think our journey in life is all about letting go of our fears, facing them and moving beyond them in whatever way that presents itself to us," she explained.

:: Planes will be released in cinemas on August 16.
