It’s been a while since we’ve seen a Thomas the train movie. Where have you been, Thomas? Anyway, my toddler is a huge Thomas fan and like usual, he loved the latest Thomas & Friends. But unlike most of the Thomas DVDs we’ve seen, this one is an actual movie. It’s only 62 minutes long, but I think that’s just about right for pre-schoolers. Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway the Movie will be available on Blu-Ray/DVD Combo Pack, DVD, digital download and video on demand on September 17th. Thanks to Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment, I’m giving away a copy of the DVD on my dad blog.
Four new trains are introduced in Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway the Movie. One of the new character, Stephen, is based on the legendary Stephenson’s Rocket, one of the fastest and most advanced steam locomotives of its day. Other new characters include Millie, Connor and Caitlin.
The Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway – The Movie Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack and DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $24.99 and $19.98, respectively. However, you can currently purchase them on Amazon for $11.96 for the DVD and $18.99 for the Blu-ray.
BTW, I also have a coloring sheet (pdf) for your little one. It’s a picture of the box art for the movie.
