Removing racing from Disney’s Planes could be a risk, but the trailer for the sequel Planes: Fire and Rescue suggests it might have paid off. The new story picks up after the events of the first film, and Dusty (Dane Cook) realizes he might not be able to race again. He tries to turn his racing skills into a more noble cause, hoping to join a team of planes who put out forest fires. However, not everyone accepts that the world champion racer is changing his tune.
