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!
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

There is a lot of chatter in the comments about this film being dark. I really don't think it's anywhere near as dark as some might let on. My 2 & 1/2 yr old son and I watched this together and he didn't flinch at all (I expected he would as he becomes afraid every time when the trains get stranded in the collapsed tunnel in Misty Island, to the point where I fast forward through it). To be fair, Diesel 10 does have a menacing laugh and does manipulate a depressed Percy to do his will. If your child is sensitive to that (or if you are) maybe this title isn't for your family.
As for the comments suggesting racial undertones.. I personally would dismiss those outright. However, I do think that social class discrimination and concepts of elitism are present in most of these titles (e.g. the Duke and Duchess, Topham Hat). I think the writers play that angle to establish chain of command (aka: listen to your parents, be useful, etc).
Anyway, my son enjoys the movie.
My 2 cents.
