“Thunderbirds Are Go” Returns in CG

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.
