Thunderbirds Are Go!: The WorldFebruary 10th, 2015
Color me impressed. This new Thunderbirds Are GO! trailer is a short tour of Tracy Island, which shows off the incredible work of Weta Workshop. They worked on all of the miniature sets, which look pretty stunning if you ask me. This video shows off the recreation area with a retractable pool, the underground battle station and some other surrounding areas – just enough to whet our appetite.
For those who aren’t familiar with Thunderbirds, this is a reboot of the 1960s puppet adventure series that has a cult following. The reboot will be CGI animation, combined with live-action miniature sets. I have to say, although I was never a fan of the original, I am intrigued by what I see so far.
Thunderbirds Are Go! will premiere on April 15 on the UK channel CITV, and has already been guaranteed a second season for 2016-2017. There’s no word on when we’ll be able to watch the show here in the States yet.
