Parents across the country are gearing up for the summer holidays – and dreading keeping the little darlings entertained for six weeks.

Luckily, the creative people at the movie studios have been hard at work on this year’s summer releases and for younger children, there’s an animation due for release which will take you all over the globe.

The new Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! movie hits screens this July and we went along with our two-year-old daughter Amy to check it out.

After the initial excitement of being in a cinema with ACTUAL popcorn, Amy settled down to watch the movie.
