With his racing days from Disney's Planes now over, Dusty Crophopper (voiced by Dane Cook) takes on a new line of work in a clip from Planes: Fire & Rescue, following the extended trailer and clip released earlier this week. When a new fire alarm comes in, this crew of rescue vehicles "drop the needle," as AC/DC's hit "Thunderstruck" is played while they gear up to fight the latest wildfire. Much to Dusty's surprise, these fires happen all the time, as explained by Dipper (voiced by Julie Bowen) in this scene from Disney's animated sequel, arriving in theaters July 18.
When world-famous air racer Dusty 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 team, a bunch of 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.
