Planes: Fire & Rescue 3D

The sequel to Disney’s 2013 high-flying Cars spinoff continues the misadventures of Dusty (voiced again by Dane Cook), the crop-dusting plane who became an air-racing legend. But when engine damage hinders his racing abilities, Dusty joins an air attack team instead, tasked with the responsibility of dousing a raging wildfire that threatens to consume Piston Peak National Park.

They really whipped this one out after the original. It seemed as Planes was leaving theatres this sequel suddenly existed.
