Last night the family went to Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue. I am going to share more about it in a moment but I want to take a moment and thank our firefighters. You go above and beyond the call of duty to protect and serve us and I am extremely thankful for all you do. I am friends with a firefighter and I have had a small glimpse into the sacrifice made by firefighters and their families. If you haven’t thanked a firefighter lately please take a moment to say thank you. They deserve it.
More about the Movie
“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 (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 opinion of the movie:
I thought this movie was really well done. It showed the importance of perseverance when things don’t look good for you. I also think this movie was a great example of not letting a disability stop your life. While Dusty was faced with a horrible truth he was also faced with an opportunity to be there for someone else. In serving others he found his purpose. I highly recommend this movie to families. If your family is facing a hardship or a disability there are many great teachable truths in this movie.
This is also a great movie to use as a teaching tool for safety with fire. It truly depicts how quickly a fire can become a very serious problem.
You will also laugh through most of the movie. The movie is filled with humor for people young and old. In fact, the people sitting behind me had no children with them and they laughed more than we did. Bring out the family and have a blast.
“They could have skipped the first one and went straight to this one. This movie was infinitely better than the first one. I was surprised that it was so good!”
R’s opinion: (7 year old girl)
“I really liked it. It’s a bit better than Frozen in some parts but not better than the whole movie because I still love Frozen most.”
C’s opinion: (4 year old boy)
“It’s better than Frozen. I liked the part where dusty was a firefighter. Go see this movie.”
