‘Thunderbirds Are Go’ Premieres on ITV Today: Awesome CGI (Video)

You can call me the big child that I am, but let me just say I’m ecstatically happy there is a new ‘Thunderbirds‘ starting on ITV. ‘Thunderbirds‘ is a show I was obsessed with when I was a kid, so to see it getting a revival in 2015 is fabulous. Especially as the old series has been a cult classic for so long, with kids in the 70s, 80s and 90s loving it just like those in the 60s when it was first released.

Among others, the new ‘Thunderbirds Are Go‘ starsĀ Oscar nominee Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope, Thomas Sangster as John Tracy, Rasmus Hardiker as both Scott and Alan Tracy, and Kayvan Novak as Brains.

David Graham will also be back inĀ his original role as the driver, Parker.


The modern day ‘Thunderbirds Are Go‘, however, will be much different than the original series as, instead of puppets, it is all being done with CGI animation and live action sets. Well, it is the 21st century, after all.

The series premieres today on ITV at 5pm. And, if you can’t wait until then, here’s the official trailer. Enjoy.
