Watch ‘Thomas & Friends: The Great Race’ at a special weekend of screenings

Thomas & Friends is back with a new feature-length adventure at cinemas.

With a line-up of 13 magnificent new international engines, the film is steaming into cinemas nationwide for a weekend of screenings on Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 of May.

‘Thomas & Friends: The Great Race’ sees Thomas wishing he could represent Sodor at the Great Railway Show, which is taking place on the mainland. But the bigger engines just laugh at him and say he's not big, strong or fast enough to compete with the best engines from around the world.

Thomas is up against international competition from a host of new engines including Raul of Brazil, Yong Bao of China, Ivan of Russia and the brightly decorated engine from India, Ashima, (voiced by Tina Desai), but he is determined to find a way - even when his plans all go wrong and the devious Diesel threatens his chances to compete.

This exciting international musical adventure - where friendship always wins the race - promises to delight children and families across the world. 

Following its recent and highly publicised real-life restoration, cinema-goers will be able to see the animated version of The Flying Scotsman in the film.

Mattel, HiT and distributor National Amusements UK Ltd are bringing ‘Thomas & Friends: The Great Race’ to more than 300 cinemas across the UK & Ireland for a special weekend of screenings. The film will continue to be shown in selected cinemas from May 23rd through half term and into the summer.
