When I saw an email regarding Thomas the Tank Engine in my inbox, I opened it immediately. My family have been Thomas fans for almost 20 years now! My oldest daughter fell in love with Thomas before she was two, and we’ve all watched Thomas, Percy, Gordon, James, and the whole gang on Sodor Island ever since. It used to be a weekend tradition for us to watch the TV show, so I happily agreed to share the magic of Thomas and the Magic Railroad 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray/DVD Giveaway with you today.

Ride The Rails with Thomas and Friends!

Thomas and the Magic Railroad 20th Anniversary Edition Blu-Ray/DVD Giveaway

This is a sponsored post on behalf Shout! Kids.  I received information to facilitate today’s post as well as a promotional copy of Thomas and the Magic Railroad Blu-Ray/DVD to thank me for my participation. All opinions and love of trains are my own.

About Thomas and the Magic Railroad:

Thomas and the Magic Railroad is a longtime family-favorite that stars Alec Baldwin (The Boss Baby, 30 Rock), Mara Wilson (Mrs. Doubtfire, Matilda), Peter Fonda (Easy Rider, Ulee’s Gold), Didi Conn (Grease, Shining Time Station), Russell Means (Last of the Mohicans, Pocahontas), and of course Thomas the Tank Engine! 

Movie Synopsis:

For as long as anyone can remember, the magical Island of Sodor has been the realm of enchantment, innocence, and talking train engines. Mr. Conductor (Alec Baldwin) is taking care of the whole railway whilst Sir Topham Hatt is away.

Mr. C comes from a family of miniature Conductors who travel between the Island of Sodor and Shining Time Station thanks to a supply of mysterious gold dust. However, Sodor’s steam engines suddenly find themselves heading for a load of trouble courtesy of the railroad baddie Diesel 10, whose plan is to destroy our hero Thomas and Mr. C… then take over Sodor before Sir Topham Hatt’s return. Thomas and Mr. C must save the engines before his dwindling supply of gold dust runs out!

Lily (Mara Wilson) has a hunch that her grandfather (Peter Fonda), up in his workshop on Muffle Mountain, can be the one to crack the code that will save the Conductor family… and bring back to life the Magic Railroad, which runs between Sodor and the beautiful Indian Valley surrounding Shining Time. Lily teams up with Mr. C and Thomas and sets out to get Sodor back on track in this beloved, full-length adventure starring the world’s #1 tank engine.

Fun Facts about Thomas The Tank Engine:

While Thomas And The Magic Railroad celebrates its 20th anniversary, Thomas the Tank Engine is marking his 75thyear as a beloved children’s character. Originally part of the Rev W. Awdry’s Little Railway book series, first released in 1945, Thomas was brought to life through the cherished TV series Thomas & Friends, created by Britt Allcroft (director/writer/producer of Thomas And The Magic Railroad) in the early 1980s. In the late ‘80s, Allcroft and Rick Siggelkow introduced Thomas to America when they created Shining Time Station. Many years on, Thomas’ legacy remains everlasting.

My Thoughts:

We’ve seen Thomas and the Magic Railroad numerous times, (minus the new special features) so I can say without hesitation that it is a classic family favorite that I think your family will love as well! Your little ones may become bored during the interviews portions, but you can just skip over them if they do.

I can’t wait to share the 20th anniversary edition with my family on Saturday morning. Watching this one together is sure to bring back many happy memories while helping us make new ones. I’ll probably serve porridge for breakfast too, just like I did when my now Gen Z daughters were little.
