Earlier this year, Disney was planning to release "Planes," a "Cars" spin-off, direct to DVD. But then, the studio realized that it may actually be able to use the popularity of the "Cars" franchise to get audiences to see "Planes" in theaters. The plan worked. "Planes" was released in August and went on to gross $207 million worldwide.
Disney immediately greenlit a "Planes" sequel, called "Planes: Fire and Rescue," and has now unveiled the trailer for the new movie, which once again stars Dane Cook. Check out the trailer below.
"Planes: Fire and Rescue" revolves around Dusty Crophopper (Cook), who leaves the glory of the racing world behind to to helm some courageous airborne fire-fighters. The new movie is set to hit theaters on July 18th, 2014.

Disney's really bending Pixar over the barrel and giving it to them ass-to-mouth. So much for Lasseter's much-vaunted artistic ideals, then.
And yeah, I know Planes is "Disney produced", but up until Pixar's acquisition, Disney had no clue how to do 3D. They were still thinking about cell-based animation. Now, though, with Pixar's brainpower at their disposal, suddenly Disney is a master of direct-to-DVD-quality 3D sequels? Right.
Well, at least Tanman has a reason to change his underwear and leave home. :D

Just curious, but has Dane Cook ever appeared in a film that didn't suck, and how is he even still alive? Did he have to migrate to voice acting simply because no one would pay to see him act on-screen?
Sure, his one "album" was a huge comedy hit, but does that mean he deserves to be in kid's 3D CGI films?

So the worst original Pixar movie ever not only gets a sequel which is even worse but also a spinoff which is even cheaper and worse but also a sequel to that spinoff which will no doubt be even worse than all three combined?
Way to go, Disney, always reaching new depths of half-assed dtv-quality 'who gives a sh*t, it's for kids' artistic achievement.
I really think Disney is tarnishing all the hard work Pixar took to build up its head and shoulders above projects that old and young could connect and equally enjoy.
I get the feeling the uninformed actually think it's from Pixar...shame. Plus I just feel Disney turning out Pixar for sequel tricks.
As for Dane Cook, I'm glad his star faded...not because he sucked that much in the movies, I've seen worse, but because he'd actually confuse his popularity with people wanting to see his stand up...his gift of gab, pop references, and storytelling abilities tend to pad mediocre/ lame jokes and premises.
His best movie, IMO, would be My Best Friend's Girl (7/10)with Jason Biggs/ Kate Hudson. I really dig it's unusual romantic comedy plot, from real funny start to its not too shabby ending...Cook's character is a backstabbing jerk and the protagonist! No easy feat and is actually part of the charm of still getting you to root for him...

smart of Cook to get into voice over work
not that many still working stand up comedians with the careers of Carlin,Pryor,Cosby,Seinfeld,Lopez,Rivers,Rickles
most of them are flash in the pans
