Now that the Official Trailer has made sufficient rounds, its time to continue the support of what looks to be a very fun series. If you didn’t see that trailer, please click HERE to bring up that post on a new tab. I’d hate for you to not know what I am talking about after all. Now its time to share a bunch of the promotional posters for the series, and this is something I love to do because its almost the same as the variant cover reveals. Let’s stars with the Official Poster and then onto the ones with the assorted characters. I’ve also added the premise and the casting for good measure so everyone knows who is who. Let’s go.
The Premise: 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 Sir Reginald Hargreeves, a billionaire industrialist, who creates The Umbrella Academy and prepares his “children” to save the world. But not everything went according to plan. In their teenage years, the family fractured and the team disbanded. Now, the six surviving thirty-something members reunite upon the news of Hargreeves’ passing. Luther, Diego, Allison, Klaus, Vanya and Number Five work together to solve a mystery surrounding their father’s death. But the estranged family once again begins to come apart due to their divergent personalities and abilities, not to mention the imminent threat of a global apocalypse.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: These look awesome and as most readers know, I don’t generally say too much in the promotional poster reveals. Well, that depends on what film or series I am discussing and as I’ve noted in the trailer post, I am a complete novice in terms of “The Umbrella Academy”. Did you enjoy these posters? Should any additional ones surface before the broadcast date I will edit them into this narrative. It’s easier based on the current website time demands and Toy Fair 2019 will be here before I know it. Until next time, adieu.
