The classic British sci-fi series "Thunderbirds" will receive a high-tech reboot at the hands of New Zealand's Oscar-winning Weta Workshop, it was announced Tuesday.
The special effects company, which has worked on movies such as "The Lord of the Rings" and "Avatar", said Britain's ITV had commissioned 26 episodes of the hit 1960s show, created by the late Gerry Anderson.
The series, with the working title "Thunderbirds are Go!", is scheduled to screen in Britain in 2015, 50 years after the original debuted.
