How perfect is this? AC/DC is providing the soundtrack to the latest trailer for PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE, the sequel to last year's hit, PLANES. The new film from DisneyToon Studios will hit theaters on July 18, 2014, and finds Dusty Crophopper (Dane Cook) joining the Aerial Fire Fighters at Piston Peak Air Attack Base as a Single Engine Air Tanker (SEAT) for a completely new adventure outside the racing circuit. Check out the new trailer (complete with "Thunderstruck") below, along with new character poses from some new rides that will undoubtedly wind up here at Rock Father HQ in toy form later this year...

"From above the world of CARS," Disney's PLANES flew into our home last Fall, creating an endless stream of adventures for the girls and I, both with the film itself (reviewed here), and the toys (which I featured here). Months later, and we're still into it - and just last month, I purchased the Aircraft Carrier Playset. Well, on July 18, the big-screen adventures will continue with the release of PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE, an all-new theatrical film that will debut in 3D. This afternoon, Yahoo! premiered a new trailer called "Courage," and I've got it for you below. Take a peek...

Disney's PLANES (Blu-ray Review)

PLANESWhen Disney sent us a copy of their movie PLANES on Blu-ray, the whole family was excited since this was a situation where we've actually had many of the toys from Mattel for several months (I previously did a big feature on them here), but we hadn't yet seen the movie (theater-going is a new thing for my oldest, and FROZEN will be her first big-screen Disney experience). Being big fans of Disney•Pixar's CARS, seeing "The World above CARS" was something we'd been eagerly-awaiting since it was teased in the short film AIR MATER on the CARS 2 Blu-ray.

There's a lot of activity in The Magic Kingdom (as if it every really slows down), and today I present to you another Disney Roundup here on The Rock Father. There's quick updates involving PLANES, JAKE AND THE NEVER LAND PIRATES, FROZEN, THE LITTLE MERMAID, and more.

We're really excited about this. On November 19, Disney's PLANES is coming home on Blu-Ray and DVD. We've already had a great time visiting Propwash Junction and staging our own "Wings Across the World" race here at Rock Father HQ (check out our adventure here), and now we'll be able to watch the adventures of Dusty Crophopper and the gang whenever we'd like. Check out an 8-minute extended preview of Disney's PLANES below, along with full details on the home release...

When Disney•Pixar released CARS in 2006, I had no idea that I'd one day be a parent... much less be The Rock Father. Fast-forward seven years, and I'm not only raising two octane-obsessed daughters, but CARS has become a permanent part of the pop culture landscape. Now, with the recent release of the animated spin-off, Disney PLANES, the girls and I have started to create our own adventures high above the World of Cars, recently expanding our toy collection with some new characters from Mattel's extensive line of CARS and PLANES vehicles. The area in and around Rock Father HQ is a big world to explore... and a fun one where the girls and I discovered Propwash Junction and staged our own Wings Across the World race.
