PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE Blu-Ray and DVD Review

With the holidays just around the corner, it is the perfect time to pick up a copy of Disney’s PLANES: FIRE AND RESCUE, now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.  Disney Movies Anywhere is also available so you can watch PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE anywhere you go with the app. This sequel to the 2013 film Planes finds air racer Dusty in the world of aerial firefighters.  He has to join up with some veteran firefighters to battle fires in Piston Peak National Park.  Is Dusty up to the challenge of this dangerous task?  The characters are voiced fabulously by Dane Cook, Stacey Keach, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen, Brad Garrett, Cedric the Entertainer, and Hal Holbrook just to name a few.  Once again Disney has created a way the whole family can spend time together as they watch Dusty and the whole gang in this high-flying adventure.  You will also love the Blu-Ray bonus features.  Vitaminamulch:Air Spectacular is an exclusive short that is a hilarious chain of events.  Welcome to Piston Peak is a vintage style travel advertisement for the area. Does anyone else think the Fusellodge hotel looks remarkably like Disney’s Grand Californian resort at Disneyland?  I also liked when the narrator of the ad says to watch out for deer and there is a field of John Deere-style tractors grazing.  Such a little detail makes a great joke.  Finally, the coolest bonus in my opinion is Air Attack: Firefighters from the Sky.  The director and producer take us behind-the-scenes to CAL-Fire, a real air attack base.  They visited the location for their research, and we can how the animators took the real film footage and turned it into animation for PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE. There is even an interview with an actual Smoke Jumper firefighter.  They really put their lives on the line when they go to work.  If you love the world of CARS and the first PLANES film, then you must add PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE to your movie collection.  You won’t be disappointed.
