On Wednesday night we were invited to an advanced screening of Disney’s PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE!
The kids were excited because they remembered seeing Planes last year, and enjoying it, so it we were curious to see what Dusty Crophopper would be up to in this movie.
Here’s some basic info about Planes: Fire and Rescue:

“Planes: Fire & Rescue” is a new adventure-comedy about second chances, featuring a dynamic crew of elite

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 air tanker Dipper (voice of Julie
Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter (voice of Wes Studi), ex-military transport Cabbie (voice of Captain 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. Directed by Bobs Gannaway
(“Secret of the Wings”) and produced by Ferrell Barron (“The Fox and the Hound 2”), “Planes: Fire & Rescue” hits
theaters in 3D on July 18, 2014.
My kids really loved it! They’re still buzzing about it today 2 days later. They said they enjoyed even more than Planes because it was “exciting…a cliffhanger…!” Really I didn’t even know that word was even their vocab. :) But I think the fire scenes, especially in 3D, did make this movie, very entertaining for them, and, it was the first time my little one sat through an entire movie without getting squirmy and asking when it was going to end. If that’s not a resounding thumbs up, then I don’t know what is!
We enjoyed it very much. Planes: Fire & Rescue is in theatres in 3D on July 18, 2014…check it out!
