ITV have released new images, which show off the new look for Brains, Lady Penelope and Parker on their reboot of the classic Gerry Anderson series ‘Thunderbirds’, which is called ‘Thunderbirds Are Go!’
All three characters have been given a make-over in much the same vein as the Tracy Brothers.
Brains has swapped his bow tie for an open necked shirt and funky jacket, while out goes Parker’s chauffeur uniform in favour of a roll neck jumper and swept back hair with echoes of George Clooney.
Lady Penelope, who will be voiced by former Bond girl Rosamund Pike, also gets a dramatic new look, dramatically younger than the original version, a crime-fighting Taylor Swift.
The first episode of the series is penned by David Baddiel and will feature Sylvia Anderson, who voiced Lady Penelope in the original series, voicing an entirely new character.
Brains will be voiced by Kayvan Novak, who is best known for ‘Fonejacker’ while Parker will be voiced once more by David Graham, who voiced him in the original series.
The episode will be called “Designated Driver” and Anderson will voice the character of Lady Penelope’s Great Aunt Sylvia.
