Sky High (2005) 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 throw flames with their footballs, study Villainy with their Chemistry and are divided into Heroes and Sidekicks instead of jocks and geeks. It's an out-of-this-world yet completely recognizable place where cool gadgetry, rampant bravery and awe-inspiring 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. When you're the son of the world's most legendary super heroes, The Commander and Jetstream, 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 an overbearing gym coach, 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 when an evil villain threatens his family, friends and the very sanctity of Sky High, Will must use his newfound superpowers to save the day and prove himself a Hero worthy of the family tradition.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Will Stronghold: How was your summer? Zach: To be honest, it was tough, man. T-U-P-H.
  • Principal Powers: What a waste. I can't do anything more to help you. I'm not Wonder Woman, you know. [walks out of the detention room, leaving Gwen/Royal Pain and the others locked inside] Gwen: I went through puberty twice - for *this*?
  • Layla: [after getting punched in the face by Penny] Big mistake! [Penny backs away slightly and then Layla uses her powers to grow vines in the cafeteria; the vines then grow over Penny and her clones and pull them up in the air] Penny: But I thought you were a sidekick. Layla: I am a sidekick.
  • [during Power Placement] Coach Boomer: Did I say you were next? Zach: Name's Zach, Coach Boomer. Try not to drop your clipboard. [claps his hands together and opens his arms again slowly. Nothing happens] Coach Boomer: Any day now, superstar. Zach: I'm doing it. Coach Boomer: Doing what? Zach: I'm glowing! Coach Boomer: I don't think so. Zach: Well, it's easier to see in a dark room, maybe we could turn off these lights, you could cup your hands around your eyes and look real close... Coach Boomer: Sidekick!
  • Josie: [flies to tackle a giant robot on Will's first day at Sky High] You sure he'll be ok? What if he forgets his lunch? Steve: Josie, Josie, you've got to stop babying the boy! Josie: You're right, you're right...
Movie Trivia:
  • According to actors who auditioned for various roles in the production, the main children's parts are to be contracted for not only a sequel but also a possible television series on the cable Disney Channel.
  • Actress Lynda Carter was initially given gold bracelets to wear as an homage to her 1970s Wonder Woman role. Warner Bros., who owns copyright to the Wonder Woman character, didn't want the bracelets shown in a Disney movie so they were removed from Carter's wardrobe for the film. She did however get to say the line "I'm not Wonder Woman you know" in one of the last scenes of the movie.
  • While Kurt Russell's suit had a cooling system, a tube where iced water circulated, Kelly Preston's didn't because it was so tight.
  • The phone number for Stronghold Realty is 800-656-1482, which is a number at ABC, which is owned by Disney. The voicemail message is.: "Thank you for calling ABC, the number you have reached is a fictional non-working number used for motion picture, and television production." The number can be seen near the end of the movie when Mr., and Mrs. Timmerman are admiring their new house, which is about to be crushed by Sky High, the camera pans by the Stronghold Realty sign.
  • The comment Mr. Boy makes about sidekicks not wearing costumes with colors that clash with their hero's is a jab at comics' most famous hero/sidekick team, Batman and Robin. Where Batman wears dark colors (blue and gray) Robin wears bright colors (Red, green and yellow)
