You may remember seventeen-year-old Zach Sobiech. Back in 2012 his original song “Clouds” went viral and captured the hearts of people everywhere. Expect to be inspired once again by Sobiech’s musical legacy and story about the resilience of the human spirit in the new Disney+ original movie Clouds.
Inspired by an incredible true story, Clouds is a poignant and beautiful look at the heartbreaking duality of life and a testament to what can happen when you start to live as if each day might be your last. Zach Sobiech (Fin Argus) is a fun-loving high school student with raw musical talent living with osteosarcoma, a rare bone cancer. At the start of his senior year, he is ready to take on the world, however when he receives the news that the disease has spread, he and his best friend and songwriting partner, Sammy (Sabrina Carpenter), decide to spend Zach’s limited time following their dreams. With the help of Zach’s mentor and teacher, Mr. Weaver (Lil Rel Howery), Zach and Sammy are given the chance of a lifetime and are offered a record deal. Along with the support of the love of his life, Amy (Madison Iseman) and his parents, Rob and Laura (Tom Everett Scott and Neve Campbell); Zach embarks on an unforgettable journey about friendship, love and the power of music.
Directed by Justin Baldoni, the movie is based on the book Clouds: A Memoir by Laura Sobiech. Clouds premieres on Oct. 16 on Disney+.
