The Umbrella Academy Beckons you to School with First Trailer

Class is officially in session! Well, it will be when the dysfunctional members of THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY arrive on Netflix on February 15, 2019. Until then, we've got the first trailer and few images to tide you over.

Created for television by Steve Blackman, here's the official synopsis for the show:

"On the same day in 1989, forty-three infants are inexplicably born to random, unconnected women who showed no signs of pregnancy the day before. Seven are adopted by a billionaire who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his "children" to save the world. Now, the six surviving members reunite upon the news of their father's passing and must work together to solve a mystery surrounding his death. But the estranged family begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse. The Umbrella Academy is based on the comic book series created and written by Gerard Way, illustrated by Gabriel Bá, and published by Dark Horse Comics. The show is produced by Universal Cable Productions for Netflix, with Steve Blackman serving as executive producer and showrunner, and additional EPs Jeff F. King, Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Gerard Way, and Gabriel Bá."

Sounds pretty cool to me! Of course, it always helps seeing Ellen Page. Between you and me, I'm still waiting for her to announce that she'll be playing Ellie in a live action version of THE LAST OF US. 

What do you think of hte first trailer for THE UMBRELLA ACADEMY? Will you be tuning in?
