The movie about Zach Sobiech, the Lakeland teen behind a viral sensation, has a release date and a heart-tugging trailer.

“Clouds,” directed by Justin Baldoni (“Five Feet Apart”) will premiere Oct. 16 on the streaming service Disney+.

Sobiech, who died from a rare form of bone cancer in 2013, became world famous after a video of him performing “Clouds” became an internet sensation. The movie, which was originally shot for a theatrical release, is based on the book “Fly a Little Higher” penned by his mother, Laura Sobiech.

The film was primarily shot in Montreal, but cast members Sabrina Carpenter, Thomas Everett Scott and Neve Campbell all attended a sing-along fundraiser at the Mall of America last December; footage from that event may end up in the final cut. See if you can spot indications of local shooting in the just released trailer.

Zach Sobiech recorded "Clouds" and became a YouTube sensation in the year before his death to cancer in 2013.
