The AFL is collaborating with Thomas the Tank Engine for the second time, with a special appearance by an AFL legend.

The star of Geelong and double Brownlow medalist, Gary Ablett Junior, is the new star to appear in the Australian series.

Ablett has demoted his striking Rolls Royce to act as Gary the Ute, helping Thomas and the gang in the quest for the absent AFL Premiership Cup.

He joins Richmond champion Matthew Richardson, who plays the star of Shane the Train and Brisbane Lions AFL Women, Sabrina Frederick-Traub, who plays Tracy the Tram.

The second series of the AFL collaboration was launched on YouTube's AFL Kids channel on Wednesday, Kidspot reported.

Ablett issued a statement saying that he was "happy" & # 39; to be included as a character of the same name.

"Gary the Ute, you can not get more Australian than that! & # 39; the soccer legend said.

"I remember seeing Thomas as a child, and with a baby on the way, I can not believe I can see these episodes in the future and say that's my voice."

The collaboration of Thomas and Friends with the AFL last year was the first international collaboration that the British program had with the soccer league.

Mattel ANZ's marketing director, Chedney Rodgers, said it was a "pleasure" for the two brands to partner for the second time.

"Together, brands share mutual values ​​of teamwork, respect and discovery that, in our view, are also of great importance to parents," said Chedney.
