Now You Know - The Umbrella Academy

Welcome to another episode of OTTplay Now You Know, I'm your host Nikhil.

The popular Netflix series, The Umbrella Academy, is returning for its third season. The story about the family of superpowered beings and their time-traveling adventures, as they try to stop global catastrophes, have endeared them to audiences across the globe. Here are some lesser-known facts about the show.

  1. Justin H. Min’s character, Ben, is shown to appear wearing hoodies in various episodes, but with different colors as the story moves forward. As Ben is a ghost and can only be seen by his brother Klaus, the change in these colors are to depict the evolution of Klaus’s powers. In earlier episodes, Ben is seen in black but as the narrative progresses more colors are added to signify the growth in Klaus’s supernatural abilities.
  2. Similarly, Elliot Page’s character Vanya, undergoes similar changes to her wardrobe and hairstyle. In the first episode, Vanya wears black clothing with a tightly pulled back hairstyle, but towards the end of season one, Vanya wears an all white costume and loosely tied hair. This is to signify how Vanya’s powers have finally manifested to their full potential which was dormant in the first episode.
  3. Actor Aidan Gallagher who essays the role of Five was banned from appearing on set for certain scenes involving gun fights.This was due to fact that Gallagher was underage and the child labour laws prevented him from being present on set. Therefore, a body-double was used in his place to complete the scenes.
  4. The original comics was written by Gerard Way, the lead vocalist of the rock band named My Chemical Romance. The band is widely regarded as the most influential bands for rock and punk rock during the turn of the millennium.
  5. Those who watched season one would be aware of the fact that Vanya’s powers are powerful enough to destroy the entire planet, something which is more potent than a hydrogen bomb. Intrestingly enough, the most powerful nuclear bomb ever tested, called The Tsar Bomba hydrogen bomb, built by the Soviet Union in 1961, was nicknamed Vanya.
  6. Eagle-eyed viewers noticed that the motel used by Hazel and Agnes in the eighth episode of season one is the famous Rosebud Motel from multiple Emmy-winning series, Schitt's Creek.

Well that's the OTTplay Now You Know episode for today, until the next time its your host Nikhil signing out.
