New Feature Film ‘Clouds’ Is Coming to Disney+ This Fall
Well here’s a bit of good news, Disney has just announced that the feature film Clouds will premiere exclusively on the streaming service this Fall. The film was produced in Montreal and is based on a memoir Fly a Little Higher by Laura Sobiech. The film marks the first narrative film acquisition for the Disney+ Global Content Team. The film is directed and produced by Wayfarer Studios co-founder Justin Baldoni.
The film tells the story of Zach, a 17-year old gifted musician who is living with a rare form of bone cancer. The film follows Zach as he struggles with the ups and downs of senior year -and the complexities of love, friendship, family and leaving behind a musical legacy. Fin Argus takes on the role of Zach Sobiech and Sabrina Carpenter (from Girl Meets World.) stars as his best friend and bandmate Sammy. Madison Iseman stars as his girlfriend Amy and Thomas Everett Scott and Neve Campbell are his parents.
“I fell in love with Zach’s infectious joy and spirit seven years ago when I made a short documentary about his life. Just before he passed, I made a promise to him that I would do whatever I could to make sure the world heard his music,” said Baldoni. “In the age of COVID-19, with the future of the theatre business up in the air, it was extremely important to me to ensure Zach’s message of hope, faith and triumph in the face of adversity truly had the opportunity to touch as many hearts around the world as possible. That’s why I’m so excited to be partnering with Disney+ for my first film under our Wayfarer Studios banner, as it’s the perfect home and platform to bring Zach’s incredible story to the world.”
“Justin has created a poignant and uplifting tribute to Zach, whose story shows us the power of optimism, music, and human connection,” added Ricky Strauss, president, Content & Marketing, Disney+. “As our team searches the world for stories that entertain and inspire, Clouds is a fantastic fit for Disney+ and our global audience.”
