“It’s like Cars, but in the sky!”

That’s how the pitch meeting for Disney’s Planes went several years ago, probably. Some ambitious young executive at Disney wanted to prove his worth, and boy did he succeed. Planes raked in over $206 million worldwide by catering to undiscerning children and other people who delight in seeing things talk that shouldn’t be talking. With that much money to be made, you’d better believe Disney greenlit a sequel faster than the cryogenically preserved head of Walt Disney could shout “Nooooo!” And now, here we are with a trailer for Planes: Fire & Rescue.

Everyone’s favorite comedian from ten years ago Dane Cook is set to reprise his role as wise-crackin’ anthropomorphic airplane Dusty Crophopper, who sounds vaguely like Lightning McQueen, if you close your eyes and wish hard enough.

“Sure, why not?” Cook most likely responded when asked to do the film. »
