After the briefest of brief teasers was released at the turn of the year, ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures have released the first full look at the Tracy brothers from the upcoming THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO!
The official blurb on this redo of Gerry Anderson’s classic show reads:
Featuring effects by Weta Workshop, the iconic series is coming back and features a cast led by Rosamund Pike (GONE GIRL) as Lady Penelope and David Graham (THUNDERBIRDS 1965) reprising his role as chauffeur and International Rescue agent Parker.
Unstoppable inventor Brains will be voiced by Kayvan Novak, while Tracy brothers Gordon and John are both played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (LOVE ACTUALLY, GAME OF THRONES). Rasmus Hardiker voices both the youngest and oldest Tracy brothers, Alan and Scott. The fifth Tracy brother, Virgil, will be played by David Menkin. Tracy Island matriarch Grandma Tracy is voiced by Sandra Dickinson and master villain The Hood is played by Andres Williams.
THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO! will feature new characters including Kayo, the Tracy brothers’ friend and fellow island resident, who will be played by Angel Coulby, and Colonel Casey voiced by Adjoa Andoh (DOCTOR WHO).
This re-invention of Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s much-loved series will be produced using an innovative mix of CGI animation and live-action miniature sets.
THUNDERBIRDS ARE GO! is executive produced by Estelle Hughes for ITV Studios, Giles Ridge for ITV Studios Global Entertainment (ITVS GE) and Richard Taylor and Andrew Smith for Pukeko Pictures. The head writer is Rob Hoegee and the series director is David Scott (LEGO STAR WARS), with Theo Baynton as episodic director.
