Session Thirteen: Thunderbirds Are Go

About This Project

When disaster strikes…International Rescue answers the call.


Join Screenies for a special cinematic screening of the first two episodes of Thunderbirds Are Go, the reimagined series that is being made right here in New Zealand by Pukeko Pictures, with Weta Workshop designing the series and producing the miniatures.

When disaster strikes and there’s no one else to help, International Rescue answers the call! From their secret island base, this family of highly trained responders can reach every corner of the globe – and beyond – in minutes. With their remarkable cutting edge Thunderbird Vehicles, brothers Scott, Virgil, John, Gordon and Alan Tracy along with head of security Kayo and lead engineer Brains pull off amazing feats of heroism. No rescue is too big and no journey too far to save a life. When duty calls, Thunderbirds Are Go.


Length: 44 minutes


Become a Recruit at International Rescue Bootcamp.


The Thunderbirds Are Go screening will be followed by a special workshop hosted by Pukeko Pictures’ Creative Officer Martin Baynton and creative play experts The Open Fort.  Children will have the opportunity to join International Rescue by designing and making their very own character and Thunderbird vehicle out of recycled materials. They will then develop and film a story with their Thunderbird making a daring rescue. The videos will be shared online and judged by Martin Baynton on behalf of International Rescue.


The workshop is limited to 30 participants.


Length 2 hours.
