ITV Studios takes Thunderbirds into The Sandbox metaverse

ITV Studios has teamed up with Reality+ to launch the Tracy Island Sandbox Experience, taking fans of the iconic Thunderbirds TV show further into the metaverse

ITV Studios and Reality+ have joined together to launch the Tracy Island Sandbox Metaverse Experience.

The time-limited Tracy Island event in The Sandbox Metaverse will run for two weeks from today to give fans the opportunity to join forces with their favourite Thunderbirds characters to take on quests in and around the famous top secret International Rescue HQ.

The Tracy Island Sandbox Experience consists of 15 quests and mini-games with a plethora of Easter eggs and information about the original TV series. Leveraging the benefits of Web3, fans can also browse the various digital collectibles, including a gallery takeover in the Thunderbird 2 hangar, and a special voxel exhibition curated by Lady Penelope.

ITV Studios initially partnered with Reality+ in September to launch the first interaction of ‘Thunderbirds: International Rescue Club’, a premium, utility-focused Web3 experience that enabled fans to buy and trade officially licensed NFT digital artworks based on the classic TV show.

Reality+ co-founder Tony Pearce said: “It’s a tremendous honour to be working with ITV Studios, not only to help them push the boundaries of what’s possible in the world of Web3 entertainment, but for the opportunity to take such an iconic TV show on an exciting new journey with its fans. We have already achieved so much with Thunderbirds: International Rescue Club, and with fantastic partners like The Sandbox there’s much more to come.”

Lucie Stoffers, Head of Brand & Licensing Global Entertainment, ITV Studios, added: “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.”
