Official: Thomas movie pushed back

The upcoming theatrical film of Thomas & Friends since 2000 has now been pushed back to next year.

In an exclusive statement on the Sif Fansite that although the film entered pre pre-production, the film has been pushed back due to the money needed to make it.
As announced in last year in mid 2010, the film was to become the first to be made under the new Hit Movies company, developed by Hit Entertainment, but was delayed for a 2011 release, now for 2012.

Josh Klausner's drafted script includes the film to be set during the times of World War II with currently a live-action cast with CGI.

The newest Thomas & Friends theatrical film is now currently aimed for a 2012 release.


  1. Well look at it this way with a 2012 release, they might release it in time for the olympic games in London. Same thing they are doing with the The Beatles' Yellow Submarine re-make. I hope the WW2 movie will get out in time next year but, patience is a virtue.

  2. I knew it wouldn't be this year since he just started work on it in Summer 2010, BUT I'M REALLY REALLY LOOKING FORWARD TO IT!!!!!!!


  4. Nuts! Now I have to wait a whole 'nother year for this thing to come out. I just hope that Hit releases an announcement trailer with Day of the Diesels. I am going to be PO-ed big time if it moves back again.

  5. Meh, saw it coming. It was pretty obvious. I don't know why fans kept blabbering on about it and saying it was coming out in 2011.
