“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”).
I thought you might want to learn a few things about some of the new characters. Cad Spinner (pictured above) is Park Superintendent. He is obviously a luxury S.U.V. who is better suited for the country club and not the country. Self-Centered and passionate about profits, Cad diverts a big chunk of the firefighters’ budget to his lodge restoration project. Though completely turned off by dirt, he is not opposed to playing dirty to get his way.
Maru is the mechanic tug at the Piston Park Air Attack base. Friendly with a sarcastic sense of humor, he’s been around a long time and has the cluttered hangar to prove it. With no budget for new parts, Maru’s many shelves of old parts and machinery come in quite handy. The re-purposing pro’s motto? “It’s better than New”. I like him already!
Mayday has been Propwash Junction’s fire & rescue truck for…..ever. He is always rarin’ to go, but he’s lost a little speed over the years. Plus his hoses are leaky and he can’t see much without his glasses. Propwash Junctions is growing fast thanks to resident-turned-big-time-racer Dusty, so Mayday might be in over his headlights.
