50 years to the day since International Rescue blasted off our televsion screens and into fantastic adventure, the THUNDERBIRDS 1965 team have released a teaser trailer for the first of three brand new episodes of classic Thunderbirds. You can watch the trailer below.
Initially funded by a tremendously successful Kickstarter campaign, THUNDERBIRDS 1965 is a project put together by FILMED IN SUPERMARIONATION writer/director Stephen La Riviere. The project aims to produce three new episodes of classic Thunderbirds using a trio of original audio dramas featuring the original Thunderbirds cast back in the 1960s.
In order to bring these 50-year-old audio dramas to life, the classic Supermarionation techniques have been reborn, and if the below trailer is anything to go by, we’re going to be treated to a fantastic amount of gorgeously made miniature, models, marionettes, and of course explosions!
The first of these episodes, a Lady Penelope themed adventure entitled “The Abominable Snowman”, is the first to be produced, with “Introducing Thunderbirds” and “The Stately Home Robberies” set to follow.
THUNDERBIRDS 1965 will be made available to its Kickstarter backers around December time later this year. Until then, why not whet your appetites for new episodes of classic Thunderbirds with our top ten moments throughout the original series?
