Fun First Trailer For Netflix's Adaptation of THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY
Netflix has released the first trailer for their series adaptation of Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá‘s superhero comic book The Umbrella Academy.
Ellen Page stars in the series and the story centers on a dysfunctional family of superheroes who come together to solve the mystery of their father's death, the threat of the apocalypse, and more. I looks like it could be a fun show!
When previously talking about the development of the series, Way explained that it will be very different from the comic book, but also says that it “is faithful to the source material” and they kept “a lot of the weird ideas” and “embraced them”. Way went on to say:
"You don’t know what year it is. Everyone is in the dark, Berlin look. The character that translated the best was Space Boy. Sure he wears clothes in the show but not the comic, but he is still really big and really sad. You see him and you think, whoa, what is the deal with this guy. All the costumes have been great and they are channeling the right stuff, but it is way different than the book."
The Umbrella Academy also stars Tom Hopper, Emmy Raver-Lampman, David Castañeda, Robert Sheehan, and Aidan Gallagher. It premieres on Netflix on February 15th, 2019.
