The new series of Thunderbirds will be named "Thunderbirds are Go!". In has also been announced that an advance purchase of the new show has been made by Nine Channel in Australia and is set to air in the spring of 2015.
The show will be a combination of live action and CGI special effects. In addition to screening in the spring in Australia, it will air shortly before that in the UK.
The revised version of the show will still feature the wonderful vehicles and the familiar names, and is being produced in New Zealand by ITV Studios and Pukeko Pictures with Weta Workshop, using CGI animation and live-action model sets, which will update the special effects while (hopefully) keeping the legacy of original series intact.
It appears that the show will not feature a live action cast however, as all the credits name the cast using voices.
The Thunderbirds Are Go! cast is led by Rosamund Pike (The World’s End, Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope and David Graham, who is reprising his role as chauffeur and International Rescue agent Parker. Brains will be voiced by Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker, Facejacker). Tracy brothers Alan and Scott are voiced by Rasmus Hardiker (Saxondale, Lead Balloon), while David Menkin will voice both Virgil and Gordon Tracy. The fifth Tracy brother, John, will be played by Thomas Brodie-Sangster (Love Actually, Game of Thrones).Write comment (0 Comments)
