BURBANK, Calif., September 26, 2005 – Disney’s heroic family comedy SKY HIGH blazes its way onto DVD on November 29, in both full-screen and widescreen versions packed with superpowered bonus features. Being a teenager in high-school can be an awkward time… especially when everyone in school has super powers! In SKY HIGH, the students have wacky teachers, big dates and lots of homework, but they also have to deal with being a hero, a side-kick, or even a super-villain. With a high-powered cast and sizzling special effects, this action-packed, laugh-filled adventure is available for $29.99 (SRP) on DVD and for PSP™ from Walt Disney Home Entertainment.

Bonus materials include an alternate opening; super-bloopers; stunts featurette, music video and “Welcome To Sky High” behind-the-scenes featurette.

SKY HIGH features a cast of favorite stars and up-and-coming young talent. Kurt Russell (“Miracle”), Kelly Preston (“Jerry Maguire”), Michael Angarano (“Lords of Dogtown,” “Seabiscuit”), Danielle Panabaker (“Empire Falls”), Steven Strait (“Undiscovered”) and Mary Elizabeth Winstead (“The Ring 2”) lead the way, and are joined by stand-out performances from Lynda Carter (TV’s “Wonder Woman”), Bruce Campbell (“Army of Darkness”), Dave Foley (TV’s “NewsRadio”), Steven Strait (“Undiscovered”), Kevin McDonald and the legendary Cloris Leachman (TV’s “Malcolm in the Middle”).

It all begins at a secret school in the clouds like none on earth: Sky High, the first and only high school for kids with super-human powers going through crime-fighting puberty. At Sky High, the student body are divided into “Heroes” and “Sidekicks” instead of jocks and geeks. It’s an outof- this-world yet completely recognizable place where cool gadgetry, rampant bravery and aweinspiring magical skills mix it up with parental battles, peer pressure and dating trouble—with explosively fun results.

This year’s class features some of the best, brightest and most powerfully gifted super-teens ever assembled. And then there’s Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano). When you’re the son of the world’s most legendary super hero parents, The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Jetstream (Kelly Preston), people expect you to live up to the family name. 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 a hilariously 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)… not to mention the usual angst, parental expectations and girl problems that accompany teenage life. But as he discovers his true strengths, he also learns that it takes loyalty and teamwork to truly become a hero!

Music by Michael Giacchino, who wrote the score for Disney/Pixar’s “The Incredibles.” Written by Paul Hernandez and Bob Schooley & Mark McCorkle. Directed by Mike Mitchell.
