New video shows the amazing world of Thunderbirds Are Go!

ITV has unveiled the first jaw-dropping shots of the new Thunderbirds world on the series’s Youtube channel.

Titled ‘Thunderbirds Are Go! | Introducing the World’, the video runs to one and half minutes and shows footage of the Thunderbird craft launch bays, the interior of Tracy Island lounge, aerial shots of the island, and what appears to be locations in Japan and an extra-terrestrial mining facility…

Teasingly, the video does not contain any footage of the character. But now the stage is set! Stay tuned for more exciting reveals in the weeks ahead.

The video follows on from a series of ‘blink-and-miss-it’ teaser trailer that commenced over Christmas.

Tracy Island revealed!

Fans got their first look at the new Tracy Island after the producers of Thunderbirds Are Go! released this exclusive official image!

The new-look Tracy Island, from Thunderbirds Are Go!

The picture was unveiled as a Thunderbirds panel came together to discuss the heritage of the series at COMIC-CON® International, San Diego, in celebration of the show’s upcoming 50th anniversary in 2015.

Despite the obvious differences, the new Tracy Island retain its iconic appearance from the original series – crystal clear waters and an exotic location! Let’s hope for more pictures of retractable swimming pools and tilting palm trees soon…

Executive Producer Giles Ridge said, “It‘s great to have the chance to give fans a sneak peek at the home of Thunderbirds. Tracy Island was a much-loved feature of the original show, so it felt right that we showcase our new-look location with the show’s followers.”

ITV Studios is currently in production with Pukeko Pictures on a remake of the classic series originally produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. The series will debut on ITV and CITV in 2015 and has already been sold to Australia’s Nine Network.

David Graham, the original voice of Parker, will reprise his role and is to be joined by Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope. The Tracy brothers are to be voiced by Thomas Brodie Sangster (Game of Thrones), Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker) and Rasmus Hardiker (Saxondale).
