    My five year old was a train lover practically since birth and it was love at first sight with him and the Thomas & Friends trains. As he's gotten older and his attention span longer, he seems less interested in the regular show that's just around ten minutes long. He has been anxiously awaiting the release of the next Thomas movie that he could really get into so it was a happy day when we got King of the Railway in the mail!

    After seeing so many Thomas DVD's I am almost as familiar with them as Reed and I noticed some differences in this movie right away. Everything seems to be a bit more modern and updated from the music to the plot to the newly introduced characters. Thomas has been around for a long time so it's refreshing to see it updated every once in a while.

    I really enjoyed watching this movie with my kids! I always like movies with a good plot and life lessons for my kids. Thomas and his Friends are great examples of working together and solving problems and this movie is no exception.

    Paige was really into this movie too because of the "royal" theme since she in fact thinks she's royalty and the new trains included two new girl engines. We think it's about time some new ladies joined them! Paige has always been into the "boy" shows and toys and most of them only have a couple token girl characters so it's always nice when there's new ones she can enjoy as well.

    In our house Thomas & Friends: King of the Railway is the true royal event of the year!

    My son has been a fan of Thomas and Friends movies for over two and a half years now (he turned 4 in August). Each one he has seen brings fun and good life lessons throughout. This one is really no different. The movie's description at the top should suffice for what this tale is about.

    King of The Railway shares many similarities with the other Thomas and Friends movies (which doesn't hurt this most recent film). Thomas is always learning an important lesson, while those around him witness some of the issues brought up by said lesson. Gordon and Spencer debate about the "fastest engine on Sodor." Percy gets bashful and inquisitive on occasion. James worries about his paint. Thomas tries to keep a secret that conflicts with making others happy. Discovering/Seeing a 'new' engine that needs repairing. All of these themes should be familiar if you've seen any of the previous movies, but nevertheless, play well into this new adaptation. It's done in a way that doesn't quite seem 'old hat.'

    The fresh spin on this particular film seems to be a nod towards the usefulness of the elderly. Stephen, the 'new' broken down engine tells stories of long ago, when he was known as the "Rocket," for his speed. But because of the strength and speed of today's engines, he has been left behind for quite some time. The Earl of Sodor has a special job for Stephen, but doesn't want to reveal it until the time is right. So the Earl entrusts Thomas to remain quiet about it until that time comes. Thomas sees that Stephen really WANTS to be useful, but what use could an "old, broken down engine" be put to? Since it's in his nature to please those around him, Thomas becomes conflicted about his promise to the Earl in wanting to tell Stephen about his intended purpose.

    Having just read the stories again, I was pleased to see they incorporated the bridge from the main land, and that Henry no longer needs special coal. I was disappointed in the voice change for Diesel -- if he pronounced the letter r the voice would be a close match. I noticed Henry didn't have any speaking lines though. Happy to see all main engines in the story, not just a scene or two.

    The story is good, positive, interesting, and I can see potential for adding the characters to future stories. The island has always had a ruined castle -- I have no problem that they built it up to match this story line. When we watch the old stories we'll just see the old castle as what this one used to be.

    I think the story is great for an experienced Thomas fan. I get concerned when the scene change rate is really high compared to the older non-animated ones. I have a feature on my TV to make the screen smaller, so I do that so this visual is not as overwhelming. The Thomas movies, including this one aren't too bad, but a couple spots the scenes change too quickly for what I like for my toddler, but brief enough.

    My grandson loved this movie and the blu ray version is really appealing to the eye as the animation is excellent

    No matter what age group people are in, this film is a must see for young and old. It is nice to see a character based on a real life locomotive and the people behind this film should all be proud of themselves. I will definitely share them with my children in the future.

    My boys had been begging for this movie long before it was out (thanks to the new trains arriving on the shelves at the toy store this past summer). We also picked up the book and read it over the summer several times. When the DVD arrived they sat and enjoyed it all the way through. I, however, completely missed Michael Brandon's voice as the narrator (they used the English narrator guy). After listening to countless Thomas episodes and movies over the past 8 years (I have three boys spread out), I really appreciate Michael Brandon's storytelling and missed him on this DVD. The train voices sounded the same though.

    Enjoyable movie with some new engines to add to the collection to keep it fresh. Don't look for new themes, an old engine gets a new chance at life (like Hiro) and gets stuck in a tunnel (like Thomas in Mysty Island), but at least the kids like it and it has a good message.
