Planes: Fire & Rescue New Character Posters Take Flight

First look posters of the new characters from the upcoming 3D computer-animated adventure film, ‘Planes: Fire & Resucue’ have been released. Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, which is set to release the sequel to last year’s comedy, ‘Planes,’ in theaters on July 18, has released posters of Dipper, Blade Ranger and Cabbie.

‘Planes: Fire & Rescue’ was directed by series newcomer, Bobs Gannaway. The follow-up stars Dane Cook, who reprises his role as Dusty Crophopper, and Julie Bowen, who voices Dipper.

Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures has released the following synopsis for the animated comedy:

‘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 and his courageous team, including spirited super scooper Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie 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.

Planes: Fire & Rescue New Dipper Character Poster Takes Flight

Outgoing and spirited super scooper Dipper (voice of Julie Bowen) is skilled at skimming lakes, scooping up more than 1600 gallons of water and dousing angry fires. A former cargo hauler from Alaska, Dipper is an avid air racing fan with a major crush on headline racer Dusty, so she’s head-over-wheels with excitement when the new SEAT shows up at Piston Peak.

Blade Ranger (voice of Ed Harris), a veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter, heads up the Piston Peak Air Attack team. Haunted by a storied past, he’s a tough and demanding air boss with a wry sense of humor, and he’s not exactly enthusiastic about his new trainee Dusty. But Blade is a pro and does everything he can to bring the new SEAT up to speed.

A jolly old ex-military transport plane, Cabbie (voice of Dale Dye) used to drop airborne utility vehicles behind enemy lines in Korea. Now he drops smokejumpers at Piston Peak—it’s a lot like combat, but nobody’s shootin’ at him. With a payload of 10,000 pounds and a maximum takeoff weight of 74,000 pounds—Cabbie can carry the smokejumpers up to 2,000 miles away.
