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.
Teri Hatcher stars in Disney’s new 3D animated comedy, Planes, voicing the character of Dottie, the forklift who co-owns and operates Chug and Dottie’s Fill ‘n Fly service station. Dottie is rookie racer Dusty’s (Dane Cook) pragmatic friend and ace mechanic who always has his back and tries to keep his high-flying hopes grounded in reality. Opening August 9th, the action-packed adventure from Disneytoon Studios is directed by Klay Hall and features an exciting voice cast that includes Stacy Keach, Brad Garrett, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Priyanka Chopra, John Cleese, Cedric the Entertainer, Carlos Alazraqui, Roger Craig Smith, Anthony Edwards, Val Kilmer, Sinbad and Gabriel Iglesias.
At the recent press day held at the Santa Monica Museum of Flying, Hatcher talked about how much fun she had voicing her character, why Dottie is a role model for girls, how voice work compares to the demands of a series, why she’s grateful to be able to slow down and spend quality time with her daughter and learn something new in cooking school, how she’s passionate about telling women’s stories, her fun two-week road trip adventure, her hopes for a bigger part in Planes 2, and her biggest takeaway from being part of a Disney animated movie.
