The Umbrella Academy Parody Is Brilliant | Don’t Miss It

Netflix’s show The Umbrella Academy season 1 came out earlier this year. And it already divided the fans into two teams, one who really loved it while the others who didn’t like it. Well, hate it or not, it couldn’t stop the show from becoming one of the most binged shows on Netflix. Even though the show is based on Gerard Way’s comics of the same name, the conversion of comics into a TV show has been pretty interesting.

The Hillywood Show presents The Umbrella Academy Parody

The Hillywood show is a YouTube channel, run by Hilly Hindi and Hannah Hindi. Both sisters are brilliant in creating parodies of movies, TV shows, and songs. In fact, their brilliance is acknowledged by many celebrities as well. The biggest proof is, Hilly Hindi and Hannah Hindi had three original Supernatural celebrities as cast members for The Umbrella Academy Parody. (And we’ll dig into it in the cast discussion).

The parody is 20 minutes 47 seconds long, while the original TV show had 10 episodes in season 1. Therefore, covering all the Hargreeves siblings in a 20-minute parody is pretty amazing. Their costumes, their characters, their facial features, and their acting skills, everything is on point. Somewhere in the midway, you’ll forget you are watching a parody. And it has everything to do with the graphics, visual effects, and set designs. It is not just a random parody, it is a pre-planned, properly-executed, and well-developed parody.

The Umbrella Academy Parody | Cast & Crew

Just like the sisters usually do, Hilly Hindi plays the protagonist role (of Number 5). Whereas; Hannah Hindi plays Vanya/Number 7 (original role played by Ellen Page). The parody also features three Supernatural alums Matt Cohen (Klaus/Number 4), Tahmoh Penikett (Luther/Number 1), and Osric Chau (Ben/Number 6).  If you do not know them by their real names, they appeared in Supernatural as John Winchester (Young), Ezekiel/Gadreel, and Kevin Tran, respectively.

Reactions By The Creators & The Fans

Even The Umbrella Academy official Twitter handle shared this parody, this alone says a lot about the concept and creativity of the Hindi sisters and The Hillywood Show.

The Hillywood Show fans are loving it. In fact, we bet the number of fans must have increased after watching this parody.

And the reaction of this fan is literally me –>

However, some people did not like it. (still trying to find the reasons). Take this Reddit thread for example:
