This marks the eighth CGI season of the show on Discovery Kids, and will have all new episodes in Spanish and Portuguese language specially for Latin American fans.

Thomas & Friends: The Great Race will run for 60 minutes and will include the most songs ever featured in a Thomas movie special, as everybody’s favorite blue engine goes on an exciting adventure at the Great Railway Show.

“We can’t wait to share the exciting world of Thomas & Friends with children and families across Latin America on Discovery Kids with the release of The Great Race, our very first musical adventure,” said Christopher Keenan, SVP Global Content & Executive Producer at Mattel Creations. “Showcasing our commitment to quality and innovation, this film will treat audiences to unparalleled production values, sing-along songs and over a dozen exciting, new engine characters from around the globe. We’ve also got a great new season of the show, which is really fun and dynamic but keeping the educational values we all love about the show.”

“We are very proud to be the network that offers the smallest viewers of the household this exciting new movie, where kids and parents will be able to see this iconic character in a new and exciting context,” said Flavio Medeiros, Director of Programming and Acquisitions for Discovery Kids Latin America. “ We are also looking forward to the premiere of new episodes of this beloved series during this festive season of the year.”
