ITV are releasing a brand new 26-epsode series reboot of the hugely popular TV show Thunderbirds and today share with the world the first-look image of the Tracy brothers in all their digital glory.
The show titled ‘Thunderbirds are Go’ is set to launch in Spring and will be a mix of digital CG alongside traditional practical models. Not only that but WETA are responsible for the CG alongside Pukeko Picture so we have faith this will be one to watch!
Rosamund Pike is set to voice Lady Penelope (Creighton-Ward – who knew?!) alongside Maze Runner / Game of Thrones (and Love Actually if you want to go way back) star Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Kayvan Novak who you may recognise from the likes of Four Lions as Brains.
The show will hit our screens exactly 50 years after my dad first watched it and he’ll no doubt be just as pleased as me to see it back!
Check out the image below and let us know your thoughts on the rebooted series. It’s about time right?! We can only hope it’s rather better than the 2004 Jonathan Frakes directed feature length version of the show!
