Last week I shared with you my attempts at drawing Dipper from Disney Planes Fire and Rescue. Well this week I am happy to say you will not be subjected to anymore of my drawings. 🙂 This week I am excited to talk about the Disney Planes Fire and Rescue Research and Development process! Holy cow! The research that Disney puts into their movies is crazy amazing. I mean seriously the time, energy and effort they put into their movies is truly awe inspiring. For Disney Planes Fire and Rescue they actually got on the roof of Yellowstone’s Old Faithful Lodge to look at the sprinkler system. Yep they get that close to make sure each and every part of the movie is as real as possible. They want to transport us into the world of Disney Planes Fire and Rescue in a way that is believable but still amazing and fun. I am very happy to say that they accomplish this goal and so much more! Just in case you didn’t know my Husband is a Park Ranger and a firefighter at the park. Going into our screening of Disney Planes Fire and Rescue I had really really really high hopes for this movie! I mean seriously it is pretty much our life turned into a cartoon with planes but still pretty close to our life 🙂 The research and development that Disney put into this movie paid off big time! I don’t want to give to much away because I want you to go into this movie with fresh eyes and excitement. I would feel horrible giving away any secrets so I am going to try and give you details without going into secret stuff. To prepare for this movie Disney met with Cal Fire, the National Park Service, Forest Rangers and pilots to make sure that they had each piece properly executed in the movie. During the animation process they brought in people to view the movie and make sure it was real to life. While they were visiting with Cal Fire they had the chance to see the team training, prepping for a fire and leaving on a forest fire. The Disney team didn’t just pick random cute planes for this movie, they did research and picked planes that are used in fighting wildfires. Each of the planes is being used currently or historically in fighting wildfires. Even Dusty the crophopper! Crophoppers were one of the first planes used in fighting fires. Windlifter is one of my favorite characters from Disney Planes Fire and Rescue…who am I kidding I pretty much love all of them 🙂 You can check out PLANES: FIRE & RESCUE ONLINE on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube!
