The Disney sequel soars to Blu-ray in November.
In an early announcement to retailers, Disney/Buena Vista will be releasing 'Planes: Fire & Rescue' on Blu-ray on November 4.
'Planes: Fire & Rescue' tells the tale of a dynamic crew of elite firefighting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildfire. When world-famous air racer Dusty (Dane Cook) learns that his engine is damaged and he may never race again, he must shift gears and launch into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire-and-rescue helicopter Blade Ranger (Ed Harris) and his courageous team, including spirited air tanker Dipper (Julie Bowen), heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter (Wes Studi), ex-military transport Cabbie (Dale Dye) and a lively bunch of brave all-terrain vehicles known as The Smokejumpers.
