Multi-talented Ashley Tisdale and snowboarding superstar Shaun White are the executive producers of the Disney Channel Original Movie, Cloud 9, an exhilarating story set in the world of competitive snowboarding. The movie, starring Luke Benward (Girl Vs. Monster) and newcomer Dove Cameron (who also stars in an upcoming Disney Channel series ‘Liv & Maddie’ – working title), is scheduled to premiere next winter on Disney Channel.
The story of Cloud 9 follows Kayla, a prima donna snowboarder who was just unceremoniously dropped from her team and forced to train with Will, a former snowboarding champion who’s struggling after a career-ending wipe-out. A video capturing it went viral, branding him an ‘epic fail’ on the Internet. Now, as Kayla trains with Will to redeem her stature, Will creates a training regimen that tests whether she’s really committed to rise to the challenge of professional competition. Meanwhile, Kayla must somehow maneuver to inspire Will to overcome his biggest obstacle — self-doubt.
In addition to Benward and Cameron, the movie stars Kiersey Clemons as Skye, Mike Manning as Nick, Patrick Fabian as Richard, Amy Farrington as Andrea and Jeffrey Nordling as Sebastian.
