2019 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for Netflix fans and leading the charge is the highly anticipated adaptation of cult graphic novel The Umbrella Academy from Gerard Way and Gabrial Ba.
The first teaser has finally arrived for this much watch series and we’re amped for what will come next. Check it out below:
The Umbrella Academy is a dysfunctional family of superheroes — Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, The Boy, The Horror, and The White Violin — who work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.
This quickfire teaser is short and sweet snapshot of what audiences can expect from The Umbrella Academy which follows the adventures of a series of highly unusual misfits that include the super powered Luther Hargreeves / Spaceboy (Tom Hopper), Klaus Hargreeves / The Séance (Robert Sheehan), Allison Hargreeves / The Rumor (Emmy Raver-Lampman), Diego Hargreeves / The Kraken (David Castañeda), Number Five / The Boy (Aidan Gallagher) and the surprisingly normal Vanya Hargreeves / The White Violin (Ellen Page). Together these misunderstood and fragmented siblings will have to put aside their manic personalities and work together in order to save the world from certain destruction from a dangerous world ending power.
The series looks like it will be a blast from beginning to end and the production design and attention to detail that is present looks astounding, and then of-course there’s Way’s very different take on the superhero genre which packs an even mix of sibling rivalry and crazy super powers.
Get ready for all kinds of out of this world crazy when The Umbrella Academy arrives on Netflix next year on February 15, 2019.
