Here is a video, just released, of Tracy Island from the upcoming Thunderbirds Are Go. As was the original it’s a touch above the normal children’s tv.

This time the world of Thunderbirds Are Go, Tracy Island, miniature sets and craft have been lovingly made by none other than WETA Workshop – the model makers behind Lord Of The Rings, The Hobbit and Avatar.

In the video you will see the Island and hangers but not the craft yet. Your also see the iconic living room with the five Tracy brothers pictures but you will note a sixth, which is new to this series, is that Tin-Tin? The music your hear has been specially composed for the series by Ben and Nick Foster, best known for their work on Doctor Who and Torchwood.
