QUOTE FROM ZACH BALDONI ABOUT DISNEY PLUS REGARDING DRAMA CLOUDS
I fell in love with Zach’s infectious joy and spirit seven years ago when I made a short documentary about his life. Just before he passed, I made a promise to him that I would do whatever I could to make sure the world heard his music,” said Baldoni.
In the age of COVID-19, with the future of the theatre business up in the air, it was extremely important to me to ensure Zach’s message of hope, faith, and triumph in the face of adversity truly had the opportunity to touch as many hearts around the world as possible.
That’s why I’m so excited to be partnering with Disney+ for my first film under our Wayfarer Studios banner, as it’s the perfect home and platform to bring Zach’s incredible story to the world.”
