Thomas all engines go

Mattel, Inc has announced that Season 27 of the animated series Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go premieres March 7 on Netflix. Featuring all-new original music, Season 27 consists of 26 11-minute episodes released in two 13-episode installments, with the second half of the season debuting September 19. The second portion of Season 27 includes the franchise’s first-ever 60-minute holiday movie, Thomas & Friends: The Christmas Letter Express, debuting late 2024. Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go is co-produced by Mattel Television Studios and Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Studios.


In Season 27 of Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go, the Number One Engine and his loc-amigos are ready for more Sodor surprises! The engines are celebrating the grand opening of a new bakery-café connecting farm-to-table routes and keeping busy bringing ingredients and sweet-smelling, flatcar-filling treats to festive tables. Thomas, Percy, Kana, Nia, Bruno and Diesel take on every challenge coupling with new and returning friends to get each job done. No matter how big the delivery or how impossible the task, there is nothing that Thomas and his friends can’t accomplish together!


In Thomas & Friends: The Christmas Letter Express, Percy discovers a child’s letter to Santa Claus forgotten at the bottom of his mail cart on Christmas Eve, but he is determined to make things right, even if that means tracking down Mr. Claus himself! With help from Thomas and his friends, Percy travels through dazzling parades, sweet-smelling gingerbread bakes, and snowflake flurries on a quest to deliver the letter to Santa and make a child’s Christmas Wish come true. Written by Rick Suvalle and featuring three original holiday songs, Thomas & Friends: The Christmas Letter Express premieres on Netflix in late 2024.


“As we embark on the 27th season of Thomas & Friends: All Engines Go, we celebrate a character that has captured the hearts of fans worldwide for decades,” said Michelle Mendelovitz, Global Head of Mattel Television Studios. “This season is not just a testament to the enduring charm and timeless appeal of Mattel’s beloved characters, but also a milestone as we proudly present the first-ever holiday movie in the franchise’s storied history. As we continue to foster the spirit of friendship, teamwork, and adventure, this season reaffirms the enduring legacy of Thomas & Friends, bringing joy to both young and old across the globe.”
