Planes: Fire & Rescue (originally titled Planes 2: Fire and Rescue[3]) is a 2014 theatrical sequel to the 2013 animated film Planes, a spin-off of Pixar's Cars franchise. Directed by Bobs Gannaway, produced by DisneyToon Studios and Ferrell Barron,[1] and executive produced by John Lasseter,[2] it will be released in theaters on July 18, 2014 by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.[4][5]

Plot

"Planes: Fire & Rescue features a quirky crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from a 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 wildfire air attack. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris) and his courageous air attack team, including spirited super scooper Lil' Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter (voice of Wes Studi), ex-military transport Cabbie (voice of Dale Dye) 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."[6][7]

Voice Cast

According to an interview with Bobs Gannaway and Ferrell Barron, the characters Chug, Dottie and Skipper Riley are scheduled to return in the sequel, though it is unknown if Brad Garrett, Teri Hatcher and Stacy Keach will reprise their roles. Leadbottom and Sparky also appear with speaking roles, but it is currently unknown Cedric the Entertainer and Danny Mann reprise their roles.

Music

Mark Mancina, who composed the music for the first film, will return for the sequel.[9]

Potential Sequel

It has been confirmed by Carlos Alazraqui that the Planes series will be a trilogy.[10][11] A Disney staff member also stated that Planes 3 is in story development.[12] Instead of publishing an Art of book for the first film, Chronicle Books will publish The Art of Planes 1 & 2 to coincide with the release of Planes: Fire & Rescue.[13]

Besides the Planes series, DisneyToon is considering to make more spin-offs that would feature other vehicles like boats and trains, and which may go into production if Planes is well received.[14][15] John Lasseter said: "I kept thinking about—I’m a big train fanatic. I love trains. And I started thinking about trains, and boats and airplanes. And I kept wanting to have more and more of those type of characters. [...] It’s one of the ideas, that there will be an ongoing series. It almost starts getting into this thing where we fall in love with these plane characters, we want to see more and more stories with them. And then you start doing other vehicles and stuff like that. Yeah. So it kind of is a bigger idea that can keep expanding."[16]

Trivia

  • Aside from the new title, the Planes logo appears to have a few small changes. For example:
    • The silver metal has been changed to bronze.
    • The small star below the title "Planes" has been changed to a sort of firehouse symbol.
  • Planes: Fire & Rescue is the fourth entry in the Cars franchise. More Cars films are planned for the future, such as Planes 3[10][11] and Cars 3.[17]
  • In addition to car-ification and plane-ification, some aspects of Piston Peak National Park appear to be train-ified.
