Opening Date:                  Friday, July 18
Rating:                              PG
“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 (voice of Ed Harris) 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”).

Thanks to Allied-THA, my family and I were given an opportunity to attend a 3D advance screening of this film. Planes: Fire & Rescue is the sequel to 2013's Planes. Dusty returns to his hometown of Propwash Junction after several racing victories. When Dusty learns that his gear box needs to be replaced but it is out of production, he realizes that his racing career apparently comes to an end. Dusty decides to become an aerial firefighter to help his friend, Mayday. He finds aerial firefighting difficult, challenging, yet rewarding. He also finds wonderful support from his brave fire & rescue team. There are many action scenes as they work together tirelessly to battle a fierce, massive wildfire. It's a beautiful story of courage, sacrifice, rescue, and risk-taking. It's not as funny as Planes but it's still enjoyable. Below are a trailer video and a video of Still I Fly (I really like this song from the movie). Great film for families, especially those of firefighters :)!
