Thomas and the Magic Railroad (also known as Thomas the Tank Engine: The Magic Railroad in the United Kingdom and Germany) is a 2021 American 3D live-action/CGI animated family comedy adventure fantasy film directed by Robert Zemeckis and Britt Allcroft based on three titled The Railway Series by Rev. W. Awdry, on the television series of the character from the same name and Shining Time Station by Britt Allcroft.

The film is a remake of the 2000 original film of the same name by the same director who created the film named Britt Allcroft, but it was a box-office bomb and a critical failure from critics and the fandom of the book and the show for the plot that was changed from the original cut, terrible acting, and the editing which had made the editor shortened the time of the main character and removed the true villain when it released on 2000, which in the new version, it has all the characters like P.T. Boomer, Pitch the Boogeyman, Tasha and even George from the film and not been edited from before along with the help of Robert Zemeckis.

It was produced by Warner Bros. Family Entertainment, Warner Animation Group, Warner Bros. Animation, New Line Cinema, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Amblin Entertainment, Illumination Entertainment, Blue Sky Studios, Castle Rock Entertainment, Nickelodeon Movies, ImageMovers, Legendary Pictures, Mattel Creations, Frog Box, Shout! Factory Kids, Sesame Workshop, Gullane Entertainment, and HiT Entertainment, presented in association with the Isle of Man Film Commission, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox and Universal Pictures.

The film was a box office success and it received critical acclaim, with critics praising the faithfulness to the 2000 film's original director's cut, the visual effects, the CGI animation on the trains, splendid acting, well-developed characters, and the plot along with the performance of Nicolas Cage as P.T. Boomer and Jude Law as Pitch the Boogeyman. The film also become the fourth highest grossing film and won eight Academy Awards and received eight Academy Award nominations. At the UK, the film had won three BAFTA Film Awards and also got one BAFTA nomination.

Synopsis

Thomas and his friends live on the Island of Sodor, the land of talking trains which has been a realm of magic and innocence, but Diesel 10 and his sidekicks Splatter and Dodge have arrived to cause trouble. Even magical Mr. Conductor, who travels between the train world and the human world of Shining Time, is losing his sparkle. Lily, a resourceful young girl meets him on the way to visit her grandfather and along with Thomas and friends embarks on an adventure to save the Magic Railroad. Thomas reminds them all that "even little engines can do big things".

Plot

The film begins with a female narrator telling the story on the Island of Sodor, where it was populated by talking trains, which the only one here was Thomas the Tank Engine. Thomas is a really useful engine who is very kind to his friends. A few seconds later, Thomas met Gordon at Wellsworth Station. Gordon complains to Thomas, who is late. Thomas retorts that Gordon is being bossy and says that he has to find Mr. Conductor, who is looking after the North Western Railway while, Sir Topham Hatt was gone for a holiday. Gordon claims Mr. Conductor isn't needed, but then, Diesel 10 rudely pass both Thomas and Gordon, which means that Diesel 10 was sent to the Island of Sodor by Sir Topham Hatt for helping, but he was acting like he was bullying any engines.  The female narrator then introduces the audience to Wallace, Gromit, the Teletubbies, Noo-Noo, Britain's Got Talent finalists MerseyGirls, and the entertainment presenters, Ant & Dec.

Thomas is later talking to James at Tidmouth Sheds when Diesel 10 shows up and voices his plan to destroy a lost engine and the remaining steam engines. James is confused, but Thomas is worried and goes to find Mr. Conductor.

After seeing Billy Twofeathers' map and noticing some strange lines on it, Patch heads off to Muffle Mountain to see Burnett Stone.

There's something on Muffle Mountain, a secret that Burnett only shared with his childhood friend and future wife Tasha: he promised he would drive an engine and take her with him. When Patch sees the engine, ​Burnett reveals the engine's past - her name is Lady, and she has been sealed inside Muffle Mountain since Diesel 10 nearly destroyed her long ago. Burnett has fixed her up, but still needs coal.

Diesel 10 tells his cronies Splatter, Dodge, Arry, Bert, Daisy and Diesel of his plan. The six bumbling diesels report that Mr. Conductor is coming to Sodor, so Diesel 10 decides to destroy him too.

Mr. Conductor prepares to leave Shining Time. Despite difficulty with his gold dust, he soon meets Thomas on Sodor. Thomas, Wallace and Gromit reports on Diesel 10; Mr. Conductor decides to use his gold dust to keep Diesel 10 in order.

Burnett looks at a painting of Lady and starts to have doubts in his belief of magic due to his failure to guard her. Meanwhile, far away, Burnett's granddaughter Lily prepares to visit him.

Thomas, James, Emily and Gordon begin arguing about who should have taken Mr. Conductor, unaware Splatter and Dodge are spying on them. Henry and Edward tells them about the lost engine. So Percy, Duck and James go and find her. Splatter, Dodge, Arry and Bert tease Thomas and his India friend Ashima, until Harold flies by, spreading dust over all six.

At Knapford, Mr. Conductor reads the note Sir Topham Hatt left him. After trying on his top hat (and returning it after he notices the portrait of the Controller appears angry) he receives a phone call from Sir Topham Hatt and receives his instructions.

That night, as Wallace and Gromit are hiding in a bush, Diesel 10 creeps up and demolishes the side of the Tidmouth Sheds with his powerful claw. Mr. Conductor reprimands Diesel 10, but then he discovers that he has run out of gold dust. Diesel 10, delighted, tries to convince Mr. Conductor of the lost engine's whereabouts, but Mr. Conductor frightens Diesel 10 away with a bag of sugar. Mr. Conductor voices his concern about his gold dust, but he tells the engines, Wallace, Gromit, the Teletubbies, Noo-Noo, Ant and Dec to go back to sleep.

Meanwhile, PT Boomer and Pitch the Boogyman talks to Burnett Stone at his house angrily about the lost engine in the night.

Mr. Conductor later has a nightmare of Shining Time in ruins, and realizes that his universe is in danger and that he needs more gold dust.

The next morning, Mutt goes to Lily's hometown with Billy, as he knows that Lily can help Mr. Conductor, but only if she meets someone special at Shining Time first. To reach that end, he directs her onto the wrong train.

Thomas, Wallace, Gromit, Ant & Dec comes with the freight cars to see Narrow Gauge Engines and the Blue Mountain Quarry.

Mr. Conductor goes to the Windmill in search of more gold dust, but he gets lost in the forest. Meanwhile, the engines gather for a meeting. Bertie passes by and tells them to smile, but all have their individual concerns. Thomas heads off to look for Mr. Conductor.

Mr. Conductor tries a carrot and a stick of celery to make him think properly, and has the idea of calling his beach-loving cousin Junior, who has used up most of his gold dust too. He tells Junior to go ​to Shining Time Station and get his emergency whistle, then go to Sodor, and warns him not to talk to anyone about the buffers. Before he can say anything else, the line goes dead.

At Tidmouth Sheds, Gordon's using the turntable go in his shed, Edward wants to go next then he saw George the Steamroller is hired by Diesel 10 to destroy the buffers. Edward must have to warn the other engines and he chuffs to Anopha Quarry to talk Mavis, Rusty, and Stepney about the buffers. Julia and the girls then tell Nia that Diesel 10 had hired George and rushes to tell Thomas and the others who are in shock. Thomas then makes a plan to stop George from destroying the buffers. But, Ant & Dec try (hilariously) and take the plan to the next level with PT Boomer and Joker.

Lily arrives at Shining Time and Mutt barks at her to get off the ​train. Lily finds the station empty and meets Junior. After a talk, Lily picks up the gold dust Junior leaves behind.

At Sodor, Edward speaks to George about Diesel 10 using him. George just ignores him and carries on.

Mr. Conductor is sleeping by a bush when he has another nightmare, and wakes ​up hearing Thomas calling his name. Mr. Conductor tries to reply, but Thomas can't hear him. Thomas and the MerseyGirls then comes across Ashima, Wallace and Gromit who are also worried about Mr. Conductor's gold dust.

Lily meets Stacy, who takes her to Burnett. That night, Burnett and Lily hear Lady's whistle coming from the mountains; Patch, who is outside with his horse, hears it too.

Thomas, Edward, Oliver, Percy and Nia talk about Mr. Conductor and conclude that he travels to Sodor on a magic railroad. Diesel 10 overhears them and goes to the scrapyards to tell Splatter and Dodge his plan. Toby, Mavis and Wallace interrupt them by ringing his bell, honking her horn and loud her roar. Diesel 10, trying to catch him, causes the shed to crash down on him, George, Splatter, Dodge, Arry, Bert and Diesel.

Thomas finds Henry with a bad cold and offers to get some Welsh coal to make him better, but while collecting them fails to notice the sixth truck bouncing away into some magic buffers. Elizabeth passes and greets Thomas and his five trucks; Thomas is confused.

Thomas tells Percy about the missing truck, and they realize that the buffers where the truck disappeared are the buffers leading to the Magic Railroad. Thomas tells Percy to guard the buffers and makes sure George doesn't ram on them while he goes to find Mr. Conductor.

Meanwhile, Mr. Conductor is wandering aimlessly when Diesel 10 appears. Mr Conductor is captured by Diesel 10's claw and is dangled over the Cronk viaduct. Diesel 10 reveals he knows about the buffers, and threatens to drop Mr. Conductor if he doesn't reveal their whereabouts. Mr. Conductor cuts a tube to Diesel 10's claw, catapulting him to the windmill where he finds Ashima, Ant and Dec already there. He then sees the words "Stoke up the magic in the mountain and the Lady will smile, and then watch the swirls that spin so well".

As for Diesel 10, he uses his claw to hit the coal hopper, which lots of coal falls on him. Cranky the crane drops the crates of fruits on Splatter, Dodge, Arry and Bert. Harvey comes to clean up the mess.

Lily is introduced to Patch, who offers her a horse ride to Shining Time. There she meets Junior again, who takes her to Sodor via the magic buffers. They meet Thomas, who agrees to help, and together they find Mr. Conductor, Ashima, Ant & Dec at the windmill. Mr. Conductor tells Junior about his clue to the gold dust, and Lily is introduced to Mr. Conductor. Junior then climbs onto the sail, and is flung onto Diesel 10.

That night, Percy, Emily and Fergus find Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, Po and Noo-Noo trying to stop Splatter, Dodge, Arry, Bert, Daisy and George from destroying the magic buffers. But Percy, Emily and Fergus races to warn Thomas. Oliver and Toad come to see them and they're too scared in the forest and they chuff home.

Mr. Conductor and Lily camp out with Thomas, Ashima, Ant, Dec and the MerseyGirls. After a conversation, they realize that Burnett may hold the key to the clue of the gold dust.

Burnett reveals to Patch that Lady is magic and they realise that the railroad is vanishing.

Thomas, Percy, Emily, and Fergus decide they must get Lily back to Muffle Mountain before Diesel 10 destroys the magic railroad, and Thomas, Ashima, and Lily set off. While journeying through the magic railroad, they discover ​the missing truck. Lily, realising the connection between the truck and ​the clue, asks Thomas to collect the truck. They soon arrive on Muffle Mountain. Lily leaves to find Burnett, but a gust of wind blows Thomas down the hill, leaving Ashima and the coal truck behind. Until after some deep breaths, Ashima then follows Thomas down the mountain and back into the magic railroad through a mysterious portal at the bottom. But, PT Boomer and Pitch the Boogyman chases them into the magic portal.

Lily finds Patch, who takes her to Burnett's workshop. Lily figures out only Welsh coal can make Lady steam, so she sends Patch to collect the coal from the truck.

Diesel 10, with Junior still on his back, races into the Smelters where he encounters James. Junior tries to whistle both of them out, only to discover that he, too, is out of gold dust. Diesel 10 tries to force the two into a melting pit, but Junior uses the last of his extra gold dust to teleport himself and James away. The two arrive near the buffers, where Mr. Conductor, Ant, Dec, the Teletubbies, the MerseyGirls, Wallace and Gromit are there waiting. Mr. Conductor and Junior, both out of gold dust, refuse to give up hope.

Meanwhile, Splatter and Dodge wants George to destroy the magic buffers and then he quits.

At Brendam Docks, Oliver and Toad come to talk BoCo, Donald, Douglas, and Salty about George last night whilst Marlin, Dory and Nemo have a conversation underneath the docks.

By now Burnett Stone has finally got Lady to steam, and along with Lily, Patch and Mutt, they set off into the magic railroad. The magic railroad, receiving energy from Lady, comes back to life, while Lady's face appears. The team encounter Thomas and Ashima before appearing on Sodor, where they reunite with the two conductors, Ant, Dec, the Teletubbies, the MerseyGirls, Wallace and Gromit.

Diesel 10 starts to give chase, but Splatter, Dodge, 'Arry, Bert, Diesel, and Daisy, fed up with Diesel 10's ways, abandon him. PT Boomer and Pitch the Boogeyman hops on Diesel 10's cab to chase them. Thomas offers to help Lady, with Burnett driving Lady and Thomas' driver driving him. Mr. Conductor warns them about the collapsing viaduct. Just as the engines run away, the conductors, Ant and Dec realize that Lady is part of the clue to the gold dust.

The chase finally approaches the viaduct. As Lady and Burnett pass the viaduct begins to collapse. Thomas and his driver manages to jump through the gap, but Diesel 10, PT Boomer and Pitch the Boogeyman can't stop in time and falls off into a sludge barge (he looks at him on the bright side by saying it's a nice time of the year for a ​cruise).

Thomas, his driver, Lady and Burnett return, where they and the rest of the team work out on the answer to the riddle. Lily mixes water from the well with golden shavings from the magic railroad, and tosses them into the air, where they all form into gold dust. The conductors, delighted, re-supply their whistles, while Thomas thanks Lady. He then gives Ashima some gold dust.

Patch and Mutt go to look around, while Junior gives Lily some gold dust. Junior tells Mr. Conductor that he wants to work now, so Mr. Conductor gives him his hat and sends him to a railroad with "palm trees and sunny spells". After Junior leaves, Sir Topham Hatt calls and says that he is on his way back, so Mr. Conductor sets off to welcome him. Lily offers her gold dust to Burnett, who sprinkles it on her bluebird toy and whispers that they will "always remember their Shining Time together".

With Lady and the Magic Railroad back to life, Shining Time is restored to its former glory. Thomas and Ashima happily puff away by themselves into the sunset along with Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, Po, Noo-Noo, Ant, Dec, the MerseyGirls, Wallace, Gromit and the end credits roll.

Production

Development

In 2003, 3 years after the original film became a box-office failure, Britt Allcroft, creator of Thomas & Friends, has been resigned from her original company which was now known as "Gullane Entertainment". After HiT Entertainment took control on Thomas & Friends, HiT revealed that its theatrical division would be piloted by a "Thomas" film. Originally targeted for late-2010 release, in September 2009 this was revised to "Spring 2011".

As of January 2011, the release date had been pushed back further to 2012 and the name of the production had still not been announced. The initial draft of the script was written by Josh Klausner who has also said that the film will be set around the times of World War II, Will McRobb and Chris Viscardi also helped write the script. On 8 June 2011, Deadline announced that 9 director Shane Acker will direct the live-action adaptation of Thomas the Tank Engine, with Weta Digital designing the film's visual effects.

Since then, no actual production has been announced, until Robert Zemeckis came in and remake the original "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" film, along with Britt Allcroft, to bring in new actors to play the characters from the original "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" film (except Alec Baldwin, in which he will reprise his role as Mr. Conductor), new voice actors to play the animated Thomas & Friends characters, video editing and restoration, audio mastering, mixing, recording, and editing, CGI animation for the "Island of Sodor" segments, blue-screen and green-screen effects for the "Island of Sodor" segments, new visual effects, and some brand new music, along with the original music from the original "Thomas and the Magic Railroad" film.

Casting

While the film is on development, Robert Zemeckis hired Alec Baldwin who previously played as Mr. Conductor in the original 2000 film, so Baldwin agreed to reprise his role.

Reception

Box office

[When the film is done development]

Critical response

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 94% approval rating with an average rating of 8.7/10 based on 260 reviews. The website's consensus reads, "An old timer film that it was very bad on 2000 so now it was back on the rail to make it better." On Metacritic, the film achieved an average score of 88 out of 100 based on 39 reviews, signifying "universal acclaim".

CinemaScore reported that audiences gave the film a rare "A-" grade. Some of the critics and moviegoers had praised Nicolas Cage's performance of the character Boomer, The New York Times reviewed his performance "When the infamous actor used to make an appearance in any movie like The Wicker Man until it has been flopped, but his performance that he did was the main antagonist P.T. Boomer in the remake from the original 2000 film Thomas and the Magic Railroad where Boomer is very envious that he has nothing to get on his way, which is the most great performance I have ever seen".

IGN game the film a grade of 9.1/10 (Amazing),

Sequels

Main article: Thomas & Friends Cinematic Universe
Since the 2019 Thomas and the Magic Railroad reboot released into

theaters, and had received universal acclaim, won a truckload of awards, and was a huge box-office success, Robert Zemeckis & Britt Allcroft are thinking about turning the whole film into an all-new theatrical Thomas & Friends movie franchise that was also related to the original Thomas & Friends franchise. This franchise was known as Thomas & Friends Cinematic Universe. Since the franchise was born, Britt Allcroft was developing a sequel to the new TATMR reboot, which was based on "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens and the Veggietales video "An Easter Carol" from Big Idea Entertainment. Although the sequel doesn't have the official title yet, Allcroft named the Thomas & Friends sequel "A Sodor Easter Carol".

The film was set to be released on Easter 2022, with the script being written by Keith Lango, Tim Hodge, and Britt Allcroft, who will also return as director and producer. Robert Zemeckis, who might have been interested in holidays since he previously worked on The Polar Express in 2004, will return as director of the sequel.

Rating

Thomas and the Magic Railroad is rated PG for some sequences that are too scary for children.

Trivia

  • This marks Lady's first appearance and first speaking role since Thomas and the Magic Railroad (2000)
  • This is the first time that Ashima has been a helping character in a movie as she assists Thomas when taking Lily to Muffle Mountain. It is also the first time since the episode, A Tank Engine's New Sheds where both of them act as friends until Lily tells Burnett Jr. about them falling in love, which correlates to the episode, A Tank Engine's Love.
  • Daniel Radcliffe voices the role of Thomas in the UK instead of John Hasler respectively.
  • Neil Crone, Tina Desai, Yvonne Grundy, Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ray Romano, Denis Leary and Chris Wedge reprise their roles in the UK and US dubs as Diesel 10, Ashima, Nia, Dory, Marlin, Manny, Wallace Diego and Gromit respectively.
  • Hayden Rolance also reprised the role of Nemo, as well as potraying Burnett Jr.
  • Peter Sallis John Leguizamo also reprised the role of Wallace, as well as potraying the Human.
  • Owen Wilson also reprised the role of Lightning McQueen, as well as potraying Burnett Stone.
  • Stock audio from Neil Crone in the 2000 movie is used along with some new lines that weren't heard in the 2000 movie.
  • The first and only special where Ant, Dec and the MerseyGirls are seen in live action. For the rest of the series, they are seen in CGI.
  • In the scene when Thomas is pulling Annie and Clarabel, there are three tracks meaning that Ashima and Nia can be on the second track and Oliver can be on the first track. Whereas in the 2000 movie, there were two tracks.
  • Stock audio from Don Rickles from the 2000 Academy Awards is used when Mr. Potato Head says "Hey! Will you get on with it?! Will you two dummies hurry it up?" and "I had to pay extra". But when he is talking to the other toys, he is voiced by Eugene Levy.
  • Diedrich Bader voices Brick Yardley in the UK and US dubs instead of Will Collyer respectively.
  • For the majority of the film, Wallace and Gromit have speaking roles. But at the end of the film, they make a cameo appearance when the movie is rewinding back to the beginning.

Easter eggs and references

Easter eggs

  • Stock audio from Chris Wedge in the Ice Age films is used for Scrat.
  • Three iconic things are easter eggs at the beginning of the movie:
    • When Lily introduces the audience to Wallace and Gromit, he says his catchphrase "Hello, lad!"
    • When Lily introduces the audience to Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa, Po and Noo-Noo, they use their "Big Hug!" saying like in the series when an ending segment is over.
    • When the MerseyGirls are introduced, their theme Fight Song is played in the backround.
    • When Ant and Dec are introduced by Lily, the verse "Saturday" from the iconic Series 13 onwards Saturday Night Takeaway theme is heard when they are first introduced.
  • In the scene when Scrat is told by the narrator that the MerseyGirls have his acorn, the scream from the first Ice Age films when he realises he has left his acorn behind after a glacier is caused is used as well as the panting.
  • In the scene where Toby, Mavis, Wallace, Ant and Dec distract the villains at the scrapyard, Ant and Dec play the current Saturday Night Takeaway theme from Series 10 onwards at full blast.
  • In the scene when Ashima, Ant and Dec are at the windmill, stock audio from Tina Desai in The Great Race is used when Ashima is singing You Can Only Be You.
  • In the scene when Ant & Dec are talking to the viewers (but essentially breaking the 4th wall at the same time), this correlates to the shows they would host (Britain's Got Talent, I'm a Celebrity....Get Me Out of Here! etc.).
