This movie picks up after the original, Dusty the little crop duster plane  is a world champion flier.   Dusty runs into some technical issues and can no longer reach the heights/altitudes that  allowed him to race.  He is at a loss of what to do next.   He needs to change his perspective and step away from racing, so what better way to do it to become a fire plane!  I don't want to give the entire film away, but this film was so much more in depth with lessons, friendship being tested, self discovery, etc.   My husband even stated it was much more intense then the original, the fires, scenery, etc were so much more developed and true to life.  I also highly recommend watching the documentary at the end of the real firefighters who are smoke jumpers and risk their lives everyday.  I loved watching the comparison between the scenes and how Disney portrayed them.  It was spot on.

Don't think this is all serious.  Oh no, there is tons of comic relief through out the film.  Dipper has some great one liners.  Of course the kids don't always pick up on them, just like Disney to throw some funnies in there for the parents too!  This was a great family film and we all truly enjoyed it!
