Such a shame because we're all such fans of the Thomas line.
To summarize, Percy feels left out because he doesn't think that Thomas has enough time for him. Diesel (whom Thomas saved in "Misty Island") verbally seduces Percy to come to the Dieselworks and meet Diesel-10, who will be his friend. Percy is made to feel welcomed by the diesels, who desperately need a new Dieselworks (their's is old and dirty). The diesels, with Diesel-10 as their ringleader, get Percy to bring Kevin the crane over, and then they get Percy to bring Thomas to the dieselworks, where he is held hostage. Percy is then asked to bring the diesels to the Steamworks, which they take over and destroy. What will happen in the end?
The movie makes very important points about knowing who your real friends are, and that some people will make believe they are your friend, but will trick you in the end. Diesel-10's methods are in fact the same as leaders of gangs and other harmful groups; they look for children who don't have friends and want to belong to serve their own agendas. Diesel-10 reminded me of Fagan in "Oliver Twist." My son certainly understood this, as he told me the story in his own words just today. He has seen this movie over and over, and I am thrilled that this important life lesson has made such a huge impression on him.
The movie is about Percy feeling left out and joining the Diesel trains at the Dieselworks. They make him feel special and convince him to help him take over the Sodor Steamworks. It is a great lesson for kids that they shouldn't hang out with the bad kids just for attention or because they feel left out. The Diesels were actually using Percy and trying to make Percy turn against his true friends. Most of the other Thomas movies feature little lessons or troubles, and this movie really has a plot to it! We were routing for Percy to realize Thomas was really his friend! The other awesome thing about this movie is the two new firefighting engines - Flynn and Belle are in it and they of course have a fire to put out! Then there is Kevin the crane in the movie that was neat too. So if your kids are like mine and like trains, trucks (cranes), and fire engines then this movie will surely be a hit!
