Here's your first good look at Thunderbirds Are Go!, the forthcoming reboot of the 1960s British scifi series Thunderbirds.

While it won't use marionettes like the original series (a la Team America), Thunderbirds Are Go! will use live action sets overlaid with CGI by the folks at Weta Workshop, the special effects studio behind The Lord of the Rings trilogy, which we can obviously get behind.

Featured below is the first image released from the reboot. As with the original series, Thunderbirds Are Go! looks to revolve around the technologically advanced rescue efforts of Jeff Tracy and his five sons: Scott, John, Virgil, Gordon, and Allen. Here's Screen Rant with casting details:

The voice cast for Thunderbirds Are Go! includes Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) as Lady Penelope, Thomas Brodie-Sangster (The Maze Runner) as Tracy brothers Gordon and John, Rasmus Hardiker (Your Highness) as both Scott and Alan Tracy, and David Menkin (Arthur Christmas) as Virgil Tracy. Additionally, David Graham is returning as Aloysius Parker, his role from the original series.
