Thomas & Friends: Hero of the Rails The Movie In Stores Now! *REVIEW & GIVEAWAY!*

Thomas_the_Train_Hero_of_the_Rails_dvdFrom the official Press Release:

Peep! Peep! All aboard for new friends, new destinations, and new voices when Thomas and his engine friends embark on their greatest adventure yet as Thomas & Friends™: Hero of the Rails steams onto DVD September 8, 2009 from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment.

See and hear Thomas, Percy, James, Gordon and all the other engines as never before in this brand-new CGI-animated movie, which marks the debut of individual character voices for the engines. For the first time, fans will hear the voice of Thomas and his friends, including three new characters who debut in Hero of the Rails, as they share stories that lead to timeless life lessons of discovery, friendship and cooperation.

DVD SYNOPSIS
In this action-packed tale of friendship, determination and teamwork Thomas discovers an abandoned and broken down engine named Hiro from an exciting far away land. Fearing that he will be scrapped, Thomas enlists help from many friends including Victor, a new steam engine and Kevin, a new crane vehicle who both work at the spectacular Sodor Steam Works. But mishaps, mistakes and one boastful engine could foil their plans for a heroic rescue. Can the engine pals work together to help their new friend? Join the adventure and find out!

I love Thomas, as the lessons that are taught are practical, meaningful, and packed with traditional morals and values of honesty, helpfulness, and teamwork. The new style of animation was beautiful to watch, and the story line was very well rounded. I happened to find Sir Topham Hat a grumpy old man in this movie, but the kids enjoyed every minute.

Both of the kids have had the opportunity to watch this DVD several times. Like all Thomas the Train movies, they stared wide eyed, watching as Thomas tried to find parts to save the very old, wise, and broken down, Hiro. The kids were quick to react to when Spencer made "bad choices" and flaunted his Express talents, and just as quick to point out the positive moments as well.

If your child likes Thomas, I definitely recommend adding this movie to your home collection.
