‘Thunderbirds Are Go’: Comic-Con Interviews

Eldubc

Thunderbirds Are Go! cast and crew stopped by the Fandom Comic-Con interview suite to talk about Season 2 of the popular Amazon original series.

The series is a reimagination of the 1960s classic series by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, with nostalgic roots and updated special effects. Set in 2060, the show features the Tracy brothers, who operate a life-saving organization called International Rescue from a remote island in the South Pacific. The brothers pilot advanced rescue crafts, the Thunderbird vehicles, that allow for land, sea, air, and space rescue.

We chatted with Executive Producer Giles Ridge, head writer Rob Hoegee, voice actors Rasmus Hardiker (Scott Tracey, Allen Tracy), David Menkin (Virgil Tracy, Gordon Tracy), and Andres Williams (The Hood), and Production Designer Ben Milson about the tremendous pressure of reinventing a beloved franchise, using cutting edge technology, and their favorite vehicles.
