Have you ever needed to reinvent yourself? Did you recognize it alone or did you have a little help from your friends or an experience that was happening in your life? Did your new path become a necessity because of something that happened to you, which was outside of your comfort zone? Was it difficult to accept this new life, especially if it wasn’t something you’d planned on?
Gavin is a huge Planes and Dusty Crophopper fan. While the original Planes isn’t exactly my favorite Disney movie of all time, Planes was for Gavin what Cars was for other children his age several years ago when it debuted in the movies. His birthday party last year was Planes themed and Christmas brought dozens of new Planes themed items. At my recent trip to Walt Disney World, my friend Christy Matte of QuirkyFusion.com and I scoured every park for something Planes related.
Disney Planes Fire and Rescue was a lot more enjoyable than I had anticipated. If you couldn’t tell by my opening paragraph, the theme of this movie is about reinvention. Dusty’s gear box is broken and because it’s been discontinued, there doesn’t seem to be a replacement anywhere in the world. In addition, Propwash Junction needs another fire fighter to bring their team up to code, so since he can no longer race, Dusty agrees to help by becoming certified as the 2nd firefighter.
Dusty joins Blade Ranger, the Smokejumpers, Lil’ Dipper, Cabbie and Windlifter at Piston Peak National Park who teach Dusty about fighting fires, but will he have what it takes to be certified?
The characters in this movie have fabulous personalities. Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen) was definitely my personal favorite and the movie had a lot more humor geared towards adults than the original Planes. Even if you weren’t a fan of the original movie, see Fire and Rescue, I think it will be pleasantly entertained. A huge issue for us with Disney movies in the past is that Gavin is afraid of the “bad guys.” There aren’t really any mean bad guys in this film, I personally felt the mission was focused more on teamwork and cooperation against fighting fires versus overcoming another character’s personality flaws.
