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.
