I had my doubts. But anyone who grew up with Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s Thunderbirds should be cheering this teaser like I am. If you didn’t grow up with the Tracy’s – I have no way to explain to you how dead-on this new CGI version from New Zealand’s Weta Studios is.
This is a new series produced for CITV, a British children’s channel, and I can only hope it makes it to these shores. The voice cast for Thunderbirds Are Go! includes Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope, Thomas Brodie-Sangster (The Maze Runner) as Tracy brothers Gordon and John, Rasmus Hardiker as both Scott and Alan Tracy, and David Menkin (Arthur Christmas) as Virgil Tracy. David Graham is returning as chauffer Parker, his role from the original 1960s series.
