ITV Studios has teamed up with web3 firm Reality+ to take Lady Penelope and Parker into an immersive 3D world.

Yes, the iconic British TV show Thunderbirds has been re-booted for the metaverse. The new version makes Tracy Island, the secret international rescue headquarters from the show, accessible for fans with a VR headset.

The so-called Tracy Island Sandbox Experience consists of 15 quests and mini-games. It also gives users the option to buy Thunderbirds NFTs, and visit a digital artwork gallery in the Thunderbird 2 hangar. Fans can buy SAND cryptocurrency from The Sandbox website or exchanges to makes purchases within the game.

Lucie Stoffers, Head of Brand and Licensing at ITV Studios, said: "We are super excited to work with Reality+ and The Sandbox team to take the next step in our partnership and bring Thunderbirds to The Sandbox. This will allow Thunderbirds fans from around the world to discover Tracy Island and complete new rescue missions, as well as get access to a bespoke NFT collection."
