Two new clips from Disney “Planes: Fire & Rescue” have been released. Set in the world of Pixar’s “Cars” the new film takes the story of Dusty Crophopper on a new, dangerous, adventure where he learns the value of teamwork and second chances. The animation special effects team spent a lot of effort to get the fire looking right. I think they did spectacular.
“Drop the needle” shows the citizens of fire fighting station getting ready to attack a wild fire:
“Perfectly good airplane” comes just a few minutes later as the smokejumpers prepare to ride the silk elevator and fight the fire on the ground:
“Planes: Fire & Rescue” is a new comedy-adventure about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world famous air racer Dusty (voice of Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous team, including spirited super scooper Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers. Together, the fearless team battles a massive wildfire and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero. Directed by Bobs Gannaway (“Secret of the Wings”).
