An early warning of disaster brings International Rescue to Peru, to assist in relief efforts following a series of earth tremors – and sends the Thunderbirds in search of an ancient Inca treasure trove, hidden beneath a long-lost temple deep in the South American jungle!

When Lady Penelope is kidnapped by sinister treasure hunters, Scott Tracy and Parker are soon hot on their trail! Along the way they’ll have to solve a centuries-old mystery, brave the inhospitable wilderness of the jungle, and even tangle with a lost tribe – with the evil Hood close behind them all the way!

Jon Culshaw (Spitting Image, Dead Ringers) voices Jeff Tracy/Parker, while Genevieve Gaunt (Harry Potter, The Royals) brings to life Lady Penelope. The cast is completed by Wayne Forrester as Virgil Tracy/Brains/Narrator, Joe Jameson as Alan Tracy/Gordon Tracy, Justin T Lee as Scott Tracy/John Tracy/The Hood/Kyrano and Anna Leong Brophy as Tin-Tin.

Producer Jamie Anderson said: “I’m over the moon that the International Rescue team is back for another thrilling adventure! Our brilliant cast and crew have turned out another FAB adventure, full of all of the excitement, adventure and glamour you’d expect from a Thunderbirds story. I know Dad would have loved to hear these continuing adventures, and the entire team has done him proud once again!”
