Last night, Allie and I got to see the advanced screening of Disney’s Planes: Fire and Rescue. It was such a cute movie! If you like Disney’s Planes, you’re going to love, Planes: Fire and Rescue! Our favorite hero, Dusty is at it again. This time, high-flyer Dusty Crophopper soars the skies, learning what true heroism is, rather than race around the world.
There’s a lot of good clean humor in this movie and it’s appropriate for children of all ages. What I love, is that it’s also appropriate for adult audiences too! Allie and I laughed through the whole movie. She had some favorite lines that she repeated until bed time and even retold the scene for Mr. Bear. It was a feel good movie that made for a PERFECT summer movie night.
Here’s a sneak preview:
As you can see from the clip, the animation is flawless! We saw it in 3D, so we got the full effect of the beautifully done computer graphics. The story takes place in Piston Peak National Park, inspired by Yellowstone and Yosemite National Parks. You can recognize much of the similarities in the film, if you’ve ever been to either (or both) parks. It’s stunning!
The story begins with the disparaging news that Dusty’s engine has sustained damage and may not ever race again. After a catastrophe at the airport, Dusty discovers that he may have a second chance, when he joins an elite team of aerial firefighters. We loved the all-terrain team, called the Smoke Jumpers, Blade Ranger, Windlifter, Dipper and the whole crew. This film, about courage, second chances and overcoming obstacles definitely put a smile on our faces.
Smoky the Bear, National Parks, and the heroes from Disney’ PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE have teamed up to help your kids have fun with fire safety this summer. Download the Educational Activity Guide, by clicking on the image below:
