My four year old son Lucian is a huge Thomas fan. While he’s always loved all the DVD’s in the series, the CGI versions certainly stand out for all of us. The old narration style didn’t give the same dimension that can be achieved with CGI animation, including distinct voices for each of the characters. The most recent Thomas movie to be released is Thomas & Friends: Misty Island Rescue which is also available on Blu-ray, including as part of a DVD/Blu-ray combo pack!
The engines are hard at work to build a new Search and Rescue Center. When Thomas helps a friend in need, he is rewarded with an exciting trip to the mainland. Along the way, he gets lost at sea and finds himself on the mysterious Misty Island, where he meets new friends Bash, Dash and Ferdinand. Together they discover the secrets of Misty Island and help Thomas find his way home. Will Sir Topham Hatt’s search party ever find Thomas? Find out in this action-packed movie adventure the whole family will enjoy!!
This is yet another movie that is at the top of my son’s list. He loves the addition of new characters even though Bash and Dash are a bit annoying for me. 🙂 We all enjoyed the mystery involved with the story and it certainly keeps you in suspense. I will admit though that I preferred Hero of the Rails to this movie is a bit darker of a Thomas story than I’m used to. That being said, it certainly didn’t scare my boys and they loved it. Lucian asking to watch it over and over again tells me it is a hit!
You can purchase this DVD at major retailers, wherever Thomas videos are sold or through Amazon.
