Fresh off his Oscar win for Best Actor, Eddie Redmayne’s next journey takes him to the Island of Sodor. Redmayne will voice an engine in HIT Entertainment’s upcoming direct to DVD Thomas & Friends movie Sodor’s Legend of the Lost Treasure, an adventure that takes the engines to a new part of the island. Redmayne voices Ryan (a task we expect is a bit less challenging than his transformation into Stephen Hawking for The Theory of Everything), while John Hurt (Harry Potter, Tinker, Tailor Soldier, Spy) will assume the part of Sailor John and Jamie Campbell Bower (Harry Potter, Twilight, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street) will voice sailboat Skiff. The DVD will be released this fall. “I grew up loving to watch Thomas and his pals getting caught up in unexpected and mischievous adventures,” Redmayne says. “I jumped at the opportunity to get involved. I had never voiced an animated character before, and I had a complete blast.”
