Gerry Anderson created – or co-created with his then wife Sylvia Anderson – a series of beloved TV shows like Mike Mercury: Supercar, Fireball XL-5, Thunderbirds and Captain Scarlet. Not to mention live-action shows like Space: 1999, UFO and Space Precinct.
Now several rare Gerry Anderson productions – like his first never-before-seen puppet film Here Comes Kandy, The Investigator, and Space Police (which became the template for Space Precinct) have been collected for the MPI DVD release The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson.
The Lost Worlds of Gerry Anderson will be in stores on November 14th.
Thanks to the caring folks at WETA – the power behind the worlds of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies – the great Gerry Anderson created Thunderbirds are coming back in a series that mixes CG animation with live-action miniature sets.
Follow the jump for an introductory video showing a glimpse of the world inhabited by the Tracy Family and International Rescue. Thunderbirds are go! Again! (And it’s about time!)
