I was recently able to take in a preview viewing of this summer’s new animated feature from DisneyToon Studios “Planes: Fire & Rescue.” I enjoyed the first “Planes” movie and expected a very similar movie in the sequel. Turns out that Planes 2 soars above the original with not just new characters, but a whole new development arc for Dusty Crophopper.
Here’s an extended preview to whet your appetite:
The original movie was always intended just to introduce the audience to the idea that Planes exist in the world of Pixar’s Cars. It was successful and now Disney’s storytellers can explore that world with a new series of films. If this is an example of the quality of films to come, I’m definitely ready for more.
Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue comes to theatres on July 18!
