The magazine known as Toy World includes an article on upcoming projects from Hit Entertainment, one of which is Thomas related.
A quote reads; Hit Entertainment will be highlighting a number of key Pre-School brands, including number one global Pre-School brand Thomas & Friends.
The following confirms the title of the next special; The highlight of 2012 is the release of the Thomas & Friends direct to DVD special the Blue Mountain Mystery.
On the subject of tie-ins, Toy World reports; The biggest ever tent pole release with the greatest ever number of licensees on board, producing themed products to help create major impact at retail.
Eagle eyed fans may notice that the words Blue Mountain can be traced back to Thomas Land's new ride which has the Narrow Gauge Engines but however is not confirmed as of yet as to what the special will focus on and who.
Blue Mountain Mystery is expected sometime in 2012 after the airing of the Sixteenth Series in the UK and worldwide, now slated for a Spring broadcast.
Thanks to the Simon and the SiF team for the alert.
