The first trailer for Planes: Fire and Rescue has landed online, confirming that the unnecessary Disney sequel does in fact exist. The follow-up to this summer’s Planes finds Dusty (voice by Dane Cook) taking his talents to the world of firefighting, as he joins a “quirky crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park.” This trailer maintains the cheesy humor from the first film, but apparently kids are quite fond of the anthropomorphic vehicles so it’s unlikely Fire and Rescue will be the last we hear from the Planes world. Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Planes: Fire and Rescue opens on July 18, 2014.
Here’s the synopsis for Planes: Fire and Rescue:
“Planes: Fire & Rescue” features a quirky crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from a raging wildfire. When world famous air racer Dusty (voice of Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and is launched into the world of wildfire air attack. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous air attack team, including spirited super scooper Lil’ Dipper (voice of 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.
