It was announced in 2013 that the classic British TV show Thunderbirds would come back. And as the day of their return is nearing, the first real trailer of Thunderbirds Are Go has been revealed. Watch it below.
Weta workshop built the miniature sets, and from the trailer it's safe to say they did a wonderful job, giving the show production values that are rarely seen on TV. I'm a little more skeptical about the CG characters though: it seems strange to drop the puppets aspect of the series while keeping this plastic look.
You can read the synopsis below:
When disaster strikes and there’s no one else to help, International Rescue answers the call! From their secret island base, this family of highly trained responders can reach every corner of the globe – and beyond – in minutes.
