Sky High was released on July 29, 2005, by Walt Disney Picture, Inc. It was written by Paul Hernandez and Robert Schooley.
Life is hard enough when you enter high school, but it is even harder for Will Stronghold. You see, the school is Sky High, a school for young superheroes, and Will’s parents are the Commander and Jet Stream, two of the greatest superheroes in the world. As if that’s not hard enough, so far, Will has evidenced no super-powers at all.
What will his dad think? What will the other kids think? This is going to be a very rough freshman year!

At a school in the sky where teens learn how to be superheroes, Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) lands in a class for students who show special promise. Classmate Gwen (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) quickly cozies up to Will, but it's soon clear that she has other motives. When he learns that Gwen's mother is a villain who was defeated by his father, Steve Stronghold (Kurt Russell), Will realizes that Gwen is aiming for revenge, and he rushes to a school dance in the hope of stopping her.
