Disney+ has released an inspiring first trailer for the upcoming film Clouds, which is based on the true story of seventeen-year old Zach Sobiech, who “captured the hearts of people everywhere when his original song ‘Clouds’ debuted and instantly became a viral sensation in 2012.”
The movie comes from director Justin Baldoni (Five Feet Apart), and it’s based on the book Clouds: A Memoir by Zach’s mother, Laura Sobiech. The movie stars Fin Argus, Sabrina Carpenter, Tom Everett Scott, and Neve Campbell.
The movie tells 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 (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 (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 (Scott and Campbell); Zach embarks on an unforgettable journey about friendship, love and the power of music.”
Clouds is set to premiere on Friday, October 16th.
