Our Thoughts...

B was more than excited to receive a copy of Disney's Planes Fire & Rescue!

'Can we watch it now, mommy? Please, oh please?'

We loved the packaging, with Dusty front and center!

Our copy contained a Blu-Ray disc, DVD, digital HD copy, and Disney Movie Reward points code!

We popped some popcorn, and sat down to watch Planes Fire and Rescue, which was a great way to spend a rainy, cold Saturday. We zipped right to the movie, and when Dusty appeared, B zoomed around the living room, rght along with him. 

It was wonderful to see old friends like Dottie, Chug, and Skipper, around Prop Wash Junction. We were sad to see Dusty hit a snag in the road with his racing career, but looked out with hope, when Dusty befriends some of the members of the fire and rescue squad, and takes an interest in what they do. Dusty realizes that they risk their lives everyday, for vehicles they don't even know- they are selfless, and brave!

Dusty decides that he wants to stop feeling sorry for himself, and do something with his life once again- and if he can't race, he wants to do something else worthwhile. Dusty is prompted to join the rescue squad, but it isn't an easy road for him. As with racing, Dusty has to be trained, follow the guidance of his elders, and those in positions of authority, and follow his heart, as well.

Planes Fire and Rescue is an exciting tale of strength and perserverence, as well as selflessness, teamwork, and bravery. It's very lighthearted and fun, just like the first Planes movie was. There are a lof of fun jokes that the parents will 'get' and enjoy, and there's lots of action and adventure for the little ones! I loved hearing familiar voices through out the movie- especially Julie Bowen (of Modern Family)- she's a tripp!

The bonus features with this disk are great! We love the music video, and the special short film! What wonderful 'extras'!

Want It? Buy It!

We give Planes Fire and Rescue 5 stars, and definitely recommend that you add it to your personal Disney movie collection. Planes Fire and Rescue would make a wonderful Christmas gift or stocking stuffer this season! Look for Disney Plaves Fire and Rescue wherever you prefer to purchase home entertainment, or head to the Disney Store online to purchase the movie, as well as Disney themed toys, apparel, and more!

Special thanks to our friends at Disney and Click Communications for allowing us to review and experience the magic of Disney, and fun and adventure that comes along with Planes Fire & Rescue. We can't wait to see what Disney will roll out with next!
