After bringing the cast to Brazil in CCXP last year and release the first teaser on your panel, the Netflix, promises to launch online the first full trailer of The Umbrella Academy!
The news was announced today (23), on the series profile on twitter.
On the same day in 1989, women who had no connection with each other and who until the previous day showed no sign of pregnancy gave birth to 43 children. Seven of them were adopted by Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who decides to create Umbrella Academy and prepare his “children” to save the world.
But not everything went according to plan. When they reached adolescence, the family disintegrated and the team broke up. Now, the remaining six members, in their mid-30s, are brought together by the news of Hargreeves’ death. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five begin to work together to solve a mystery related to their father’s death. But they are at odds again because of the conflicts caused by different personalities and skills – all in the midst of the imminent threat of global apocalypse.
