Disney's Animated Spin-Off Sequel 'Planes: Fire & Rescue' Full Trailer
Coming just one year after Planes hit theaters in 2013, it's pretty clear that Disney is looking for a cash grab with this summer's sequel Planes: Fire & Rescue. Set in the world of Cars, the original film felt like the straight-to-DVD spin-off it was intended to be, and this sequel doesn't look any better despite some gorgeous animation. These stories just feel devoid of any real substance, and seem like a perfectly good waste of some talented animators. Sure, kids love Cars and these new characters, but these films can also be compelling for adults. Anyway, the new full theatrical trailer has a soft rock tune that creates a weird tone.
Here's the full theatrical trailer for Disney's Planes: Fire & Rescue, originally from Yahoo:
Planes: Fire & Rescue, the feature film sequel to Disney's Planes, will be directed by Bobs Gannaway. Comedian Dane Cook returns to voice cropdusting plane Dusty Crophopper, who 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. Julie Bowen ("Modern Family") joins the voice cast as spirited super scooper Dipper with some other firefighting characters. Disney sends the film to theaters everywhere in 3D this summer on July 18th.

I didn't watch the trailer and I'm not going to willingly, but I'd like to say that at least theming it around something (fire and rescue) is almost interesting.

They are really churning these out, huh? I mean, the first one just came out in August. But I suppose this was always going to happen once 'acceptable' animation quality became cost-effective(cheap) enough. The big films, Pixar and Dreamworks movies, will have huge budgets and the highest quality in the animation...but movies like these can be churned out much cheaper and much more quickly. They are almost like the low-budget horror movies of the animated movie genre.

So bad. After the commercial success of FROZEN, I hope this buried and we never have to see the Cars Universe again.

Four of these movies but no Incredibles sequel.

I don't think kids movies should be compelling to adults. I think that's selfish on the part of the adult world to think they should be. Most things that are interesting to kids aren't interesting to adults for numerous reasons. We take away from their development and their culture by insisting on any sort of happy medium. The last Planes movie, I'll admit was a bit dull to me, but for a kids movie it had fantastic pacing and a story that was simpler and closer to their level (compared to the other Cars films). If they would have left out the innuendos and the romantic relationship aspects of the story it would have been pretty close to a perfect "kids" movie. I see the same flaws already in this preview, but the addition of the fire fighting will add a bigger draw and more excitement for the kids.
