Jamie Anderson, Managing Director of Anderson Entertainment, welcomed today’s ‘sneak peak’ of Thunderbird 1 from ITV’s new ‘Thunderbirds Are Go!’ remake of Gerry Anderson’s classic Thunderbirds, saying:

“It’s great to see how closely this new Thunderbird 1 design follows the beautiful and truly iconic original by design and effects maestro Derek Meddings. I’m hopeful that it’s a positive sign of things to come. It seems clear that the team at Weta Workshop are truly passionate about the original series – I know lots of them are massive fans of the original Thunderbirds and we’re all really looking forward to seeing what they come up with for the remaining craft as well as the series itself.”

“Next year marks the 50th Anniversary of Thunderbirds so it’s great to see ITV joining us in creating a range of exciting new Anderson adventures like our book series ‘Gemini Force One’ and audio series ‘Terrahawks’, whose launches will also commemorate half a century of entertainment magic next year!”
