Walt Disney Pictures has provided Superhero Hype! with 16 new profiles for the characters in the upcoming superhero comedy Sky High, opening on July 29.
In the Mike Mitchell-directed film, Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is the son of the world’s most legendary superheroes The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston) and is about to attend Sky High, an elite high school that is entrusted with the responsibility of molding today’s power-gifted students into tomorrowâ€™s superheroes. The problem is that Will is starting with no superpowers of his own and, worst of all, instead of joining the ranks of the “Hero” class, he finds himself relegated to being a “Sidekick.”
Now he must somehow survive his freshman year while dealing with an overbearing gym coach (Bruce Campbell), a bully with super speed and a dangerous rebel with a grudge (and the ability to shoot fire from his hands)â€¦not to mention the usual angst, parental expectations and girl problems that accompany teenage life. But when an evil villain threatens his family, friends and the very sanctity of Sky High, Will must use his newfound superpowers to save the day and prove himself a “Hero” worthy of the family tradition.
