New Zealand’s Weta Workshop (Lord of The Rings) is teaming up with Pukeko Pictures (Jane and The Dragon) to revive Gerry Anderson’s classic marionette series Thunderbirds, according to a report today at Deadline Hollywood.
This time the new series, titled Thunderbirds Are Go, will be made in CG. According to the site:
Twenty-six half hours have been ordered for air on ITV and CITV in the UK in 2015. The new series will be produced using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets while also paying tribute to the legacy of model locations from Anderson’s original.
