ITV and Pukeko Pictures are remaking Gerry and Sylvia Anderson’s classic sci-fi adventure Thunderbirds, replacing the marionettes with a mixture of practical and digital special effects. Now they’ve released a series of videos introducing the heroes, including the five Tracy brothers and their new pal Kayo.
Wherever disaster strikes, and no one else can help, the team from International Rescue will be there. Departing from their secret base on Tracy Island, the highly trained squad covers the whole world, and beyond. Each one of these videos is a kind of calling card for the core members of the crew, like this first one for Scott Tracy. The clips also give a brief nugget of information about each character, and introduce the various ships that they pilot into action.
