Caution: This review contains major spoilers for the movie, "Journey Beyond Sodor." 

With the midnight of August 8, Thomas' 2017 special movie, Journey Beyond Sodor made its world debut through US iTunes, and other digital download platforms. Journey will be released in UK, Australian, and US cinemas subsequently. Journey blew fans' expectations out of the water... mostly. Almost everyone was pleased with it.


We here at ThomasNATION, got together three of our members (ThomasFan3000, SunilFan48 and JFtheLOLZOR) to write a First Impressions Review for Journey - our thoughts right now. We'll also be doing a grand Journey review with the complete team in the coming month.

Here's SunilFan48's First Impressions of Journey Beyond Sodor: 

This movie is the "Hottest Thing in Town!" Ehh? No? Okay... 

But anyways, I have watched it twice and plan to watch it many more times. I have replayed the songs waayy more though as they are stuck in my head and won't …

Caution: This review contains major spoilers for the movie, "Journey Beyond Sodor." 

With the midnight of August 8, Thomas' 2017 special movie, Journey Beyond Sodor made its world debut through US iTunes, and other digital download platforms. Its happened for the first time in a long time, when a Thomas special premieres on a direct release, instead of a prior cinema release [Journey will be released in UK, Australian, and US cinemas subsequently.] As Journey rolled out, the fandom was filled with mainly positive reactions to the movie that people thought would be heavily disappointing. While of course some people didn't thoroughly enjoy it, the general feedback was quite good.

WHAT IS HAPPENING? Revamp? Spin-Off? S21? - Laying Down All The Facts about "Big World! Big Adventures!"

Image
New posts have thrown the fandom into confusion as something called "Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!" emerges, July 25th - firstly from a kids TV website called Worldscreen. 

ThomasNATION lays down all the facts we have - let's break it down!



14th October 2017 is set as the date of the debut of this series / season. It all began with a Worldscreen post that declared a series called "Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures!" It was clear that a French media company called "MIP" will be debuting this content on their pre-school platform, "MIPJunior" in October. 

Revealed at a huge French media festival in Cannes, - hosted by MIP, Mattel Junior's new series is all about making "Thomas & Friends content more entertaining, inclusive, meaningful and global, whilst ensuring all the favourite characters and storylines that fans around the world love remain at the heart of the action." as quoted by Mattel’s Chi…

Captain Underpants: ThomasNATION Review (by JF the LOLZOR)

Here's another film review. This time its DreamWorks' "Captain Underpants." JFtheLOLZOR shares his story of another special book series he has an intimate connection with - just like all us Thomas Fans do with RWS. Read his Captain Underpants review:

Hey hey, Jack Frefigs back at it again! A while back I done reviews on Trolls and The Lego Batman Movie. So, what the hey; one more can't hurt. 


Today, it's Captain Underpants' turn to get reviewed with his all new animated feature. This movie is the latest film from the lovely lads at DreamWorks Animation, based off Dav Pilkey's phenomenal books. You may be wondering about my views on their previous film this year, The Boss Baby. Well, it's nothing special, but still okay. Sure, the writing is workshopped and kinda predictable, but to its credit, it can be witty thanks to Alec Baldwin, the animation is nice, the heart is in the right place and Hans Zimmer's score is the highlight of the film.

21 Times the Brenner Team Aced an Episode (by ThomasFan3000)

It almost feels strange to be writing this - after such a long time, I'm back on this familiar blog post page. "Posting as ThomasNATION." With the series on break, there's hardly any reviews or things to write about. The last major development was the Journey Beyond Sodor Trailer (To read post, click here.) There's mainly nothing else that's been happening (for continuous updates, follow us on Twitter!) and we haven't posted in quite a while.

But, since we *might* be getting season 21 soon, [Almost all the new seasons in the last four years have started in June-July-August], here's 21 times the Brenner Team nailed an episode to the core!



Arguably the most excellent team of writers for Thomas, the Brenner Team has given us some exceptional episodes. Brilliant plots, outstanding character personas - most of their episodes have been fantastic. True, they have had their downs (cough, "Steamie Stafford" cough) but some of their episodes have made i…
