THESE ARE SOLEY MY OPINIONS AND NOT FROM THE THOMAS & FRIENDS FAN BASE
KING OF THE RAILWAY'S 2ND TRAILER
So as you probably guessed, HIT Entertainment had released a 2nd trailer to the upcoming DVD special 'King of The Railway' on 'Go Go Thomas' for the US audience. This one features more footage from the upcoming DVD special showing us more new characters like Connor and Caitlin.
So far this is the plot, Sir Robert Norramby, The Earl of Sodor, has returned to the island and wants to reopen Ulfstead Castle. So Thomas, James and Percy were given a 'special' job to deliver supplies to the Castle. So far that's it, keeping in mind this is only the trailer.
With Connor and Caitlin, they look great in CGI and their basis really shows well and comparing it Gordon and Spencer, who were seen next to them, their faces do look like something that Nitrogen would create, the creamy colour of the faces really has that Nitrogen look, but then again this made under Arc Productions. I still don't think it's realistic that Connor and Caitlin are American/Canadian based locomotives, I'm not a big fan on American locomotion or railroading but I do have one favourite locomotive and that is 'Daylight'. But the UK has some USA based locomotives like the SR USA dock tank engine and they have the American austerity S160 locomotive during WWII and there are some in preservation today. However, the two them do seem likeable and interesting, we'll just have to wait and see in September.
With the animation, It does look a little better unlike the bad quality of the trailer, but it's not perfect.
We'll now have to wait for September for the release and the trailer does make it a bit interesting. I will be buying the DVD when it comes out. But I think we have to say this, it takes time to get used to new things and this is Arc's first special DVD and we didn't like the idea of Nitrogen taking over Thomas when the show was first announced to be transformed into CGI and yet we liked them in the end with the animation, despite the bad story lines.
This is also Andrew Brenner's first written story for the show and I think we'll look forward to that. After all looks don't make it a great movie.
KING OF THE RAILWAY WILL BE AVAILABLE ON DVD
IN SEPTEMBER 2013.
