ITV Studios has teamed up with web3 company Reality+ to bring the TV show Thunderbirds into the metaverse. The TV industry is trying more to be in the metaverse these days, so they are making the metaverse news.
The British science fiction show with Lady Penelope, Brains, and Jeff Tracy will be brought back to life in The Sandbox metaverse.
Fans will be able to virtually visit Tracy Island, the famous top-secret international rescue center from Thunderbirds, starting on Monday, March 13.
When players put on a VR headset and go into the metaverse, they will see their favorite Thunderbirds characters and be able to do quests on Tracy Island. The event is called the Tracy Island Sandbox Experience, and it is made up of 15 quests and small games.
Users will have access to Thunderbirds NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, and will be able to see Lady Penelope’s exhibition of digital art in the gallery of digital art in the Thunderbird 2 hangar.
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.”
Reality+ co-founder Tony Pearce said it was a tremendous honor to be working with ITV Studios, not only to help them push the boundaries of what’s possible in Web3 entertainment, but also to take such a famous TV show and its fans on an exciting new journey.
