The computer animated versions of the Tracy brothers in the remake of Thunderbirds have been revealed.

Thunderbirds are Go! is a co-production of New Zealand's Pukeko Pictures and Weta Workshop with Britain's ITV Studios. It's due due to start screening in NZ, Australia and Britain later this year.

The new picture shows brothers, Scott, Virgil, Alan, Gordon and John in front of their secret home base, Tracy Island.

The computer animated version has retained much of the facial features of their big-eyed puppet predecessors from the 1960s original by Gerry Anderson.

The series will star the voices of Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope and original cast member David Graham who reprises his role as her loyal servant Parker.

Other star voices will include Game of Thrones star Thomas Brodie-Sangster voicing John Tracy.
