Peter Andre takes starring role in new Thomas movie

Star voices a mischievous Australian rally car called Ace in Big World, Big Adventures.

Peter Andre has become the latest celebrity to lend his voice to a character in preschool favourite, Thomas & Friends.

Peter will bring to life the character of Ace in the new 80-minute CG animated special, Thomas & Friends: Big World, Big Adventures The Movie.

The cheeky Australian rally car inspires Thomas to leave his home of Sodor and travel around the world with him.

Peter has also recorded a new song for the movie called Free and Easy, which will be available on Spotify for the launch of the movie.

The movie will be showing at 400 cinemas throughout the UK from July 20 before then hitting screens around the world.

Peter commented: “It is a real honour to be voicing the character of Ace in new movie and such a buzz for me to be doing my first worldwide movie voiceover for something that I grew up on and loved as a child and that my kids now love too.”

The movie will be supported by a toy line from Fisher-Price including the Thomas & Friends Turbo Jungle Set and Nia engines in the Trackmaster, Wood and Adventures segments.
