It's been eight years since Amy Adamle and Zach Sobiech started their senior year at Stillwater. But it will be relived for the world starting on Friday, when 'Clouds' debuts on Disney Plus.


"It's the Hollywood version of our lives and our story. But it's going to be so special for it to be told in a new way. I'm nervous, and excited, and anxious," Adamle shared with us. She was our Good Morning Northland anchor until July of this year.

Last November, she headed up to Montreal with a large group of Zach's family and friends, to be part of the film-making process. "The amount of love that was put into this movie will be really evident," Adamle told us. "Everyone on set talked about being so inspired. It's not like any normal movie that they've worked on.  They felt really powerful, telling Zach's story."

Justin Baldoni, the director, knew Zach and Amy back in the beginning of this journey. He told her, at the filming, "You and Zach and the family, changed my life. Zach's story, your story, this story, proved to me that people were hungry and ready for content that made them feel."

Baldoni went on to say, "The message about not having to find out you're dying to start living is something universal. It's a message of hope. Praying for a miracle, and something you didn't expect. Coming together and believing in the human spirit."

He also wanted to make sure they felt included in the process. The group of friends and family are extras in a scene. Adamle is in more than one. "Justin has a lot of little Easter eggs for us. Like Finn wearing some fo Zach's actual clothes, and he used the actual crutches Zach used. Madison wears one of my dance jackets," she told us.

As the momentum builds with the movie coming out, Adamle is encouraging people to join Zach's Movement, and help find a cure for osteosarcoma.  You can host a watch party, buy the book written by Zach's mother that inspired the film, or fundraise in other ways.

"That was Zach's mission, and now Justin's mission, to really raise money for osteosarcoma research. The Zach Sobiech Sarcoma Fund already has raised more than $2 million dollars. But research is not cheap, and it's going to take a lot to cure this. And that's what Zach wanted," Adamle added.
