The Umbrella Academy from Gerard Way stars Ellen Page

Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance fame has found a home on Netflix. Conceived and written by Way, the idea began as a graphic novel, released by Dark Horse Comics, with interior art done by Eisner-winning artist Gabriel Ba. After being greenlit by Netflix last summer, the live-action series has now released its first teaser.

It should hit the streaming service on Feb. 15, 2019, and the series stars Aidan Gallagher and Cameron Britton and features Ellen Page and Mary J. Blige.

“I am thrilled that The Umbrella Academy has found a home at Netflix. I couldn’t think of a better place for the vision Gabriel Bá and I had when creating the comic and cannot wait for people to experience that world as a live-action show.”

The story centers on 43 children spontaneously born to women who previously showed no signs of pregnancy. A millionaire investor adopted seven of them, with the only reason being “to save the world.” The Monocle, Spaceboy, The Kraken, The Rumor, The Séance, Number Five, The Horror, and The White Violin work together to solve their father’s mysterious death while, according to the official story, “coming apart at the seams due to their divergent personalities and abilities.”

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
