About the Movie
“I think I can, I think I can…” The timeless story comes to life in this all-new, feature-length film filled with fun and adventure! When Little Engine (Alyson Stoner, Cheaper by the Dozen) must leave Dreamland to deliver toys into the real world, she sets her fears aside and learns that with a little determination and courage, anything is possible. Featuring an all-star cast, including Whoopi Goldberg (The View), Jamie Lee Curtis (Freaky Friday), Corbin Bleu (High School Musical) and Brenda Song (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody), this “fun family film” (Francine Brokaw, Los Angeles Family Magazine) is one you’ll enjoy again and again.
What were they thinking?
Took my 3 yr old and her friend to see this movie and we were all enjoying it until the "Nightmare" train character came along. Both kids were frightened and ended up on my lap. I am always scratching my head as to why movies geared for kids have to have a scary or evil element to them.
Not for sensitive youngsters!!!
We are very disappointed that they adapted a classic children's story, added a great cast, and then proceed to ruin it by adding a very evil character. The first half of the movie flows exactly as you would expect and the gang gets into predictable trouble on their journey. Instead of finding help on their way, they introduce a Nightmare Train that is serves no purpose other than to terrify kids. Beware if your kids are sensitive!
My 5 yeaar old found it amusing, but says he would not want to watch it again. My 3 year old was scared and refused to watch anyomre after the Dream Train character was introduced. They both know the book and were disappointed with the film.
