ITV and New Zealand’s Pukeko Pictures today released an exclusive preview of the new-look Tracy brothers from this year’s hotly anticipated new series, Thunderbirds Are Go.
The action packed reboot has been produced using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets to deliver a new level of action-adventure animation whilst also paying tribute to the classic 1960’s phenomenon.
The re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s iconic series will star Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, Pride and Prejudice) as Lady Penelope and original cast member David Graham who reprises his role as Parker.
Other star voices will include Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker) as inventor Brains and Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Game of Thrones, Love Actually) voicing John Tracy.
The major new children’s series – a co-production between ITV Studios and New Zealand based Pukeko Pictures in association with world-famous Weta Workshop (The Lord of the Rings, Avatar) – is set to debut internationally in Spring 2015 in the UK exclusively on ITV and CITV and locally on GO! in Australia and TVNZ in New Zealand.
