My review of the movie:
My kids, mainly my son who is 5 1/2 LOVES Thomas and Friends movies, so when he found out that I could review him a new movie of Thomas he was very excited and asked when will it be here? It came in the mail and he immediately wanted to watch it, and with all Thomas episodes and movies, there is a lot of adventure which is a lot of fun for a child. This one is filled with a lot of fun stuff. He has a new destination to go to and that is on the Island of Sodor. 

Join Thomas and Friends as they embark on a legendary movie adventure! The steam team's quest begins when a special guest arrives on Sodor with a big surprise and important jobs for Thomas, Percy, and James. The engines meet new friends and discover suits of armor; coats of arms and legends of long-ago heroes. Then their bravery is put to the test when their new friend Stephen goes missing. Will Thomas find him in time? Will the engines discover the truth about the Island of Sodor's biggest mystery? It's a crusade of knightly proportions for Thomas and Friends in this epic movie!
