Remember freshman year of high school? Remember how insecure you felt going into this strange place where everyone knew more than you? Imagine how hard high school would have been, if, before you even got there, everyone expected you to be brilliant in math and science, because your parents are Nobel-prize-winnging astrophysicists - and you sucked at math and science. Give everyone superpowers, and that's basically the premise of Sky High.
Will Stronghold (Michael Angarano) is about to enter Sky High, a high school where future superheroes are trained. Will's parents, Steve Stronghold/The Commander (Kurt Russell) and Josie Stronghold/Jetstream (Kelly Preston), are the most famous superheroes in the entire world. In the world of Sky High, superheroes are common and accepted - Will sees news reports of his parents saving the world from evil robots and other assorted bad guys.
