The new Project SWORD story illustration will be drawn by Paul McCaffrey, pictured above. The illustration will form part of a newly commissioned TV21 to accompany a Limited edition Blu Ray Box Set, "Filmed in Supermarionation".
I have contacted Paul and unfortunately due to contractual reasons he was not able to tell us any more. He does read the blog though! We'll just have to wait until October for the first official TV21 Project SWORD artwork since Malcolm Stoke's drawing shown here for the final story "The End of the Beginning", 15th March 1969 [I have the full story and will post it next March near the date it appeared in 1969].
Producers release shot from the anticipated re-make of the much loved series
Fans get an exclusive first look at the new Tracy Island
The picture was unveiled to coincide with Thunderbirds panel at COMIC-CON® International 2014.
Thunderbirds Are Go producers have released an exclusive image from the production of their new series; an insight into the brand new Tracy Island. The picture was unveiled as a Thunderbirds panel came together to discuss the heritage of the series at COMIC-CON® International, San Diego, in celebration of the show's upcoming fiftieth anniversary in 2015.
Tracy Island is fondly remembered for its unique features including its retractable swimming pool and tilting palm trees. In keeping with the original setting, the island still stands tall over the crystal clear waters of an exotic location.
The action packed reboot will be produced using a unique mix of CGI animation and live-action model sets to deliver a new level of action-adventure animation whilst also paying tribute to the classic 1960's phenomenon.
Speaking about Tracy Island, Executive Producer Giles Ridge said, "It's great to have the chance to give fans a sneak peak at the home of Thunderbirds. Tracy Island was a much loved feature of the original show, so it felt right that we showcase our new-look location with the show's followers."
ITV Studios is currently in production with Pukeko Pictures on a remake of the classic series originally produced by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. The series will debut on ITV and CITV in 2015 and has already been sold to Australia's Nine Network.
David Graham, the original voice of Parker, will reprise his role and is to be joined by Rosamund Pike as Lady Penelope. The Tracy brothers are to be voiced by Thomas Brodie Sangster (Game of Thrones), Kayvan Novak (Fonejacker) and Rasmus Hardiker (Saxondale)
