Back in February ITV announced Thunderbirds Are Go! based on the work of the late Gerry Anderson – now the cast has been revealed and it includes some of the original cast members as well as big-name newcomers like Merlin 's Angel Coulby.
Hitting screens in 2015 this reimagining of the classic series will be produced using a mix of CGI animation and miniature sets. In it, Rosamund Pike ( The World’s End ) will be Lady Penelope while David Graham ( Thunderbirds 1965 ) will again be chauffeur Parker.
"I’m very excited to bring Lady Penelope’s wry wit and taste for adventure to a new generation," says Pike. "The scripts are very modern, very fresh and very funny."
