Disney+ announced today it will be exclusively streaming the drama, “Clouds”, set to debut this fall. The film recently completed its production in Montreal, Quebec, and is the first film acquired by the Disney+ Global Content team.
“Clouds” was acquired from Warner Bros. and will be available in all Disney+ markets. It is based on the memoir, Fly a Little Higher by Laura Sobiech, the mother of Zach Sobiech. The film was directed and produced by Justin Baldoni (“Five Feet Apart”) and stars Fin Argus, Sabrina Carpenter, Madison Iseman, Thomas Everett Scott and Neve Campbell.
“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,” said Baldoni in a statement.
Below is the film’s synopsis:
“Clouds” is the true story of Zach Sobiech, a musically gifted 17-year old living with a rare bone cancer (osteosarcoma). The film follows Zach’s journey over the course of his senior year as he navigates the complexities of love, friendship, family and leaving behind a musical legacy.
Ricky Strauss, president, Content & Marketing, Disney+, said, “As our team searches the world for stories that entertain and inspire, ‘Clouds’ is a fantastic fit for Disney+ and our global audience.”
Disney+ comes with a free trial in Canada and costs $8.99 per month.
