If you and your kids, like me, are fans of the Disney movie Planes: Fire & Rescue, you may find this interview very interesting. I love movies and for me it’s a treat when I have the opportunity to find out what goes on behind the scenes. I love hearing about things like the research behind the production of a movie and how the cast is chosen, etc.
A few weeks back I sat down with Bobs Gannaway, Director, and Ferrel Barron, Producer, of the fantastic animated movie Planes: Fire and Rescue. If you saw the movie in theaters, I think you will agree that it has a great message and is amazingly well done. (If you haven’t seen it, get ready because the Blu-ray will be available in stores on November 4th). These two great guys shared many interesting facts about the making of the film and here are five:
5 Interesting Facts about Planes: Fire & Rescue
- It took two and a half years to develop the fire animation system for the movie.
- Animators created more than 2 million trees to populate the nature scenes.
- National Parks were a big inspiration for the movie. The nature scenes are inspired by Yosemite National Park and Yellowstone National Park.
- While researching the movie, they discovered that Native American Indians have a long history of fighting wildfires, and wanted to pay tribute to them with a Native American Indian character, and so the character of Windlifter was created.
- Planes: Fire & Rescue took four years to make and was being made at the same time as the original Planes movie.
