ITV Studios has released a video introducing Tracy Island from Thunderbirds Are Go!, the upcoming revival of the 1960s sci-fi series.
Backed by music composed by Ben and Nick Foster (Doctor Who, Torchwood) the footage tours the miniature sets created by Weta Workshop, from the Tracy Villa to the Thunderbird 1 hangar beneath the swimming pool to rolling rural landscapes.
Announced in 2013, Thunderbirds Are Go! is set to kick off its 26-episode first season later this year. ITV has such confidence in the project that it's already ordered a second season.
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. With their remarkable cutting edge Thunderbird Vehicles, brothers Scott, Virgil, John, Gordon and Alan Tracy along with head of security Kayo and lead engineer Brains pull off amazing feats of heroism. No rescue is too big and no journey too far to save a life. When duty calls, Thunderbirds are GO.
