Disney's "Planes: Fire & Rescue" is coming. You'll recall that "Planes" was a surprise hit last summer, so Disney did not waste any time bringing this "Cars" spinoff back in a hurry. Above is trailer "Thunder."
Dane Cook returns as the voice of Dusty Crophopper, the cropduster plane with big dreams. He is joined by Julie Bowen ("Modern Family"). Stacy Keach returns as Skipper, and Ed Harris, Erik Estrada and Fred Willard have roles. The film is directed by Bobs Gannaway and opens July 18th in the US and August 8 in the UK.
In case you were wondering, the original song in the trailer (not the Elvis Presley tune) is "Still I Fly." It was written and produced by Michael Smith (Smidi Music, Inc.).
From the Disney youtube page:
Disney's Planes: Fire & Rescue comes to theatres on July 18!
"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 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").
