The movie ran about an hour long, and although my little guy sat still (glued) to the screen, we could have easily broke it up between the different episodes since it wasn’t just one long movie. Most of the show was the traditional animation for Thomas & Friends, however, there was some live action story telling from Driver Perkins.
