The Umbrella Academy trailer is weird, crazy and cool — watch it here

The Umbrella Academy trailer is fun, fun, fun and, oh yeah, weird!

The Netflix exclusive series The Umbrella Academy got its first teaser trailer today and, as expected, it is weird, crazy and cool.

Just like Gerard Way’s The Umbrella Academy comic book series that the eagerly awaited new web series is based on.

The Umbrella Academy stars the brilliant Ellen Page as Vanya Hargreeves, Robert Sheehan as Klaus Hargreeves, Emmy Raver-Lampman as Allison Hargreeves, Tom Hopper as Luther Hargreeves, David Castañeda as Diego Hargreeves, and Aidan Gallagher as Number Five.


The series was developed by Steve Blackman (Fargo), and written by Jeremy Slater (Death Note, Fantastic Four). Gerard Way is Executive Producer, so it is very likely this venture will be nicely true to his comics.

The series premieres on Netflix on February 15th, 2019 and, if the fan reaction to the The Umbrella Academy trailer so far is anything to go by, it is going to be another big hit for the popular streaming platform.

Watch the Netflix The Umbrella Academy trailer below and, if you are a fan of the comic books, see if the cast is how you expected these characters to be.
