To celebrate the release of Planes 2: Fire & Rescue in cinemas from 8th August, Disney will be attending the Blackpool Airshow on 10th August, accompanied by a fully interactive fire truck. The truck will allow children to explore the interior of a fire engine which will have on board interactive screens playing brand new clips from the film. Visitors will also get the chance to experience a fully interactive game where they will fly as characters Dusty and Dipper, and help protect the National Park, extinguishing fires as airborne fire fighters.
Alongside the truck there will be fun and games: a Water Blaster Game and a fireman’s fancy-dress timed challenge, all overseen by real fireman who can explain the importance of fire safety and give a real insight into the bravery of firemen.
Make sure you head down to the fire truck while at the Blackpool Airshow (Sunday 10th August) to join in with all the fun, and catch Planes 2: Fire & Rescue in cinemas from 1st August in Scotland and across the rest of the country from 8th August 2014.
When world-famous air racer Dusty Crophopper 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. “It’s a movie about second chances,” says director Bobs Gannaway (“Secret of the Wings”). “Each character was something else before finding their current roles, and Dusty is a crop duster-turned-racer who can’t race any more. When we learned that historically, the very first air attack teams were crop dusters, it was clear that the plane was telling us where the story was going.”
Dusty joins forces with veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous team, including spirited air tanker Dipper, heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a lively bunch of brave 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.
Planes 2: Fire & Rescue will be flying into cinemas in Scotland on 1st August and across the rest of the country on 8th August 2014.
