Product Description

The Steamies and the Diesels face off in this action-packed movie adventure! When a fire breaks out on the Island of Sodor, two new firefighting engines – Flynn and Belle – join Thomas and Percy to save the day! When Thomas starts spending all his time with Sodor’s newest heroes, Percy is left feeling alone. Diesel sees this and invites Percy to the Dieselworks, where Percy is made to feel special by none other than the master of mischief Diesel 10! But Percy doesn’t know that he is part of Diesel 10’s master plan to take over the Sodor Steamworks. Can Percy lead the Steam Team to reclaim the Steamworks or will the Diesels make it their new home? It’s full steam ahead to sure-fire excitement in this all-new movie from Thomas & Friends!

Amazon.com

Friendships are tested and conflict abounds in this 58-minute Thomas & Friends movie. When fire breaks out in an old farm shed on the Island of Sodor, it leads to the arrival of two new engines, Belle and Flynn the fire engine. Sir Topham Hatt asks Thomas to show the two new engines around the island, and Percy ends up feeling alone and left out because his best friend Thomas doesn't seem to have any time left to spend with him. The diesels befriend Percy in his time of need, but it turns out that the devious engines are only taking advantage of Percy's discontent in order to get something they really want--the Steamworks. Will the battle over the Steamworks come down to a show of force between the steamies and the diesels, or is there some other way for all the engines to get what they want and need? Day of the Diesels explores what true friendship looks like and reaffirms the notion that only by working together and taking care of one another can Thomas and his fellow steam engines achieve their goal of being really useful, happy engines. (Ages 2 to 6) --Tami Horiuchi

My son is 3 and normally loves the Thomas movies (Misty Island, Hero of the Rails), but this movie was a bit scary for him. I think it's Diesel 10 and his sparking claw that really scared him. I had to turn it off and try it again later. We eventually got through it, but he doesn't want to watch it again (unlike Misty Island and Hero of the Rails which we've seen a lot). The quality was really good, but it was a bit darker than the other movies. If you have a 2-3 year old, you may want to wait until their older.

My two year old son is OBSESSED with all things Thomas. And he is terrified of this film. It's so sinister and creepy, and very dark. He hides under the chair in the corner, or he runs to his father or me and buries his face into our chests and cries when the diesel engines appear. And Percy is really sad in it a lot, which upsets him very much. He becomes devastated when Percy cries in the film. Percy is normally so upbeat, and he becomes a very depressed little engine. The music and mood is so dark and disturbing, and we really don't recommend it at all. It looses the innocence that is Thomas & His Friends.

I have a 3.5 year old and I was worried after seeing the reviews on here that the movie would be too scary for my son. We watched the movie and there wasn't a time he wanted to turn it off. This has been the case with some children movies he has seen on TV. I wanted to write this review for those parents that were put off by some of the other reviews. There was a darker tone than Misty Island Rescue, but I thought it was a theme my son could grasp.

I must say I was incredibly surprised with the "intensity" of Day of the Diesels and it's slightly evil aura. However, I think it was a welcome change to the usual light-hearted Thomas and Friends episodes. I don't think very young children should watch it without an adult, especially if they are used to the nothing-bad-ever-happens-in-Sodor Thomas episodes. My 2-year-old son was slightly freaked out even though he watches movies about robots and likes scary stuff in general, but upon seeing the movie the second time he actually enjoyed it. He just needed to know that everything would be OK even with a fire and what-not. So all in all, I would recommend this movie if for no other reason than that it is a refreshing approach to the same old Thomas does something wrong, Sir Topham hat is very "cross", and Thomas proceeds to fix his misnomer. Happy watching!

I was concerned when I read some of the negative reviews of this new Thomas video, but my 3 1/2 year old loves Thomas, and he especially loved "Misty Island" as a Blu-ray on my large-screen television, so I figured I'd get this. I was far more than pleasantly surprised, I was delighted by this short movie. In fact, I'm sure that writer Sharon Miller knew she was taking a big step with the story.

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.

My boys love Thomas, and this is their absolute favorite one. My 2 1/2 year old just wants to watch the Diesels. I have trouble putting on any other Thomas movie if they see this one on the screen. Cute movie, even though i feel like i have seen it 100 times, i can still sit and watch time and time.

My 5 year old son and I watch many children's shows and movies together. As I've said in previous reviews, I'm generally impressed when I come across a children's DVD that is entertaining for both adults and children alike.

DAY OF THE DIESELS fits the bill!

Synopsis: The threat of fires on the island of Sodor has prompted Sir Topham Hatt to have two new firefighting steam engines brought to the island: Belle and Flynn. Thomas' best friend Percy feels dejected after Thomas befriends the new engines; Percy no longer feels "special." In turn, Percy decides to accept a dubious invitation from Diesel to visit him and his friends at the Dieselworks - a place that, according to Thomas, should never be visited by the steam engines because, in his own words, "diesels can be devious." Arriving at the Dieselworks, Percy is surprised to discover that the facility is badly run down, dirty, and falling apart; it is the antithesis of the beautiful, clean, and shiny Steamworks facility. At the Dieselworks, Percy is greeted by Diesel Ten, the intimidating leader of the diesel engines. Diesel Ten tricks Percy into believing that he and the diesels are his new best friends; Percy is then duped into assisting Diesel Ten with his devious plan to take over the Steamworks while all of the steam engines are away from the facility. After the takeover, Percy realizes the error of his ways; he mobilizes the steamies with the intent to take the Steamworks back from the diesels, and a showdown ensues. However, a last minute intervention on the part of Sir Topham Hatt resolutely resolves the matter, both putting Diesel Ten in his place and acknowledging the need for a new Dieselworks.
