Walt Disney Studios and DisneyToon Studios have released a new trailer titled ‘Courage’ for their upcoming animated sequel, Planes: Fire & Rescue, which will debut in theaters on July 18, 2014, which you can find embedded below.
From the world of Cars soars Planes: Fire & Rescue, a new comedy-adventure featuring a quirky 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 is launched into the world of wildfire air attack. Dusty joins forces with veteran fire and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his courageous air attack team, including spirited super scooper Lil’ Dipper (Julie Bowen), 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.
Although no official cast announcements have been made beyond Dane Cook (who reprises his role) and Julie Bowen of ‘Modern Family’ fame, the trailer appears to include the unmistakable voice of ‘King of the Nerds’ star Curtis Armstrong.

Update: As it turns out, Armstrong had even talked about working on the film on his Facebook page over a year ago. He also confirmed to us via Twitter that he is in fact involved with the film:
@stitchkingdom Yes. Not a secret as far as I know.
