Can you believe Sky High the movie turned 15 this week? The movie starring Kurt Russell Kelly Preston and Michael Angarano as the Strongholds, Superhero Family! For anyone who’s into comic books, superheroes and villains will know exactly what I mean about this particular movie! Released July 27th, 2005 Sky High was a generic comic book-inspired movie, but what made the film so cool is that it was relatable. You have parents you wish to not disappoint, a need to make friends without making any enemies while doing the best you can at handling all the hurdles in between.
We have Kurt Russell who plays the most powerful Superhero of them all, Steve “The Commander” Stronghold who happens to be one of the two people in Will’s life he doesn’t want to disappoint. Then we have the late great Kelly Preston (#RIP) who plays Josie “Jetstream” Stronghold, The Commander’s wife. Finally, we have Michael Angarano who plays the protagonist Will Stronghold, who’s coming of age moment is supposed to occur during the summer before his first day of High School.
The three other movies that were released on the same day as Sky High were Stealth (Starring Josh Lucas, Jamie Foxx & Jessica Biel), The Skeleton Key (Starring Kate Hudson), and Lady Vengeance (Starring Yeong-ae Lee).
