‘Planes: Fire and Rescue’ Trailer: As Plain As Can Be

The first Planes is barely out of theaters, yet already we’re on the receiving end of a trailer for the Pixar-no-more franchise’s sequel, Planes: Fire and Rescue. If anything, it’s a testament to how efficient Disney is at cranking these things out, even if no one in particular actually wants to see them (excluding, of course, the entire Earth’s population of eleven year-old boys). But the first Planes cost $5om to make and pulled in more than quadruple that amount, so it’s a safe bet that we’ll be seeing the trailer for Planes 3 before Fire and Rescue is even in theaters.

And there’s really nothing in this trailer that’s overtly offensive; it’s just another in a long string of quickly thrown-together animated movies. Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook) has joined up with a crew of vehicles devoted to putting out forest fires, so the trailer is mostly Dusty and the gang extinguishing flames and spouting reheated one-liners. There’s a brief moment where our heroes visit Honkers, the anthropomorphized vehicle-version of Hooters, and that’s admittedly a little creepy. But everything else is right on par to make the little boy inside of you squeal with glee, even as he’s being suffocated by all those things like “common sense” and “good taste.”

You can check out the trailer for Planes: Fire and Rescue below, thanks to Moviefone. The film hits theaters on July 18, 2014.
