Catch an encore presentation of the new Disney Channel movie “Cloud 9” at 8 p.m. Friday. The movie follows Will Cloud (Luke Benward) and Kayla Morgan (Dove Cameron) as they help each other to overcome self-doubt and reach new peaks.

“Cloud 9” wins viewers over with its action-packed, adventure-filled plot. “Professional snowboarders taught our cast some really cool tricks,” says Ashley Tisdale, the movie’s executive producer. “The story’s really great as well.”

Young snowboarder Kayla Morgan is having the time of her life. Her dad owns a ski lodge. She’s the top snowboarder on her team. And she receives all the praise she could ever want. But that all changes when a sledding “accident” gets her kicked off the team and into reality.

Retired champion snowboarder Will Cloud may be just the help Kayla needs. And helping Kayla may put Will back in the game, too. He left the snowboarding world after a terrible snowboarding accident that everyone called an “epic fail.”

Together, Will and Kayla tackle their fears and enter the Fire and Ice Snowboarding Competition. But they soon learn that the greatest reward is something much more than a shiny trophy. “Cloud 9” demonstrates the power of believing in yourself, even when you’re filled with self-doubt.

“I think this movie has a 360 appeal,” Cameron told Time for Kids. “It’s romantic for the girls, and sports-filled for the guys and girls. It’s got everything I would want to see in a movie!”

“My dad, he was the first person I called when I got this role. I said, ‘Daddy, do you know Brad Pitt? I’m going to be in a movie with him.’ ”
