Small Details You
Missed In The
Academy Season
3 Trailer
Remember when Lila first uses Viktor’s powers known as the White Violin against the team in the battle at the end of Season 2? Season 3’s trailer has footage of her doing it again, but the two characters are seemingly working together to suggest Lila has had a change of heart.
White Violin
There's also a blink-and-you'll-miss-it appearance of The Hotel Obsidian — with a huge neon sign on top of a building. It’s a little different from the extra-dimensional building in the comics but in the Dark Horse series, it's a prison that houses all the villains that the Academy has faced over the years.

In the new trailer, a brief moment shows Five looking more like a private investigator than a member of Hargreeves Academy. Chances are that after the first encounter with the Sparrows, he and the rest of the Umbrellas are in the wind trying to keep off the Sparrows' radar.
Five’s Costume
In the Season 3 trailer, we finally see the now transitioned Viktor, learning to trust in himself and flexing newfound confidence. He even threatens an opposing member of the Sparrow Academy, warning that he's already ended the world twice.
Near the end of the trailer, Pogo the chimpanzee, who raised the Umbrella Academy siblings and was killed by Vanya in the epic Season 1 finale, makes a brief appearance. He slowly turns toward the camera, holding a tattoo needle in one hand, while a man sits and waits.
The trailer shows the Sparrow Academy students fighting with their Umbrella Academy counterparts. Whether they remain in conflict with the Umbrella Academy crew or eventually join them is unclear, but the Sparrow Academy team is clearly a huge part of Season 3.
The Sparrows
If one thing stands out in this trailer, it's the repetition of the inane-sounding word: kugelblitz. According to Futurism, a kugelblitz is German for "ball lightning," and is formed when a massive amount of energy is focused and concentrated on a single point in space.
