Disney ‘Sky’ is the limit

Mouse premiere has super start

At Sunday’s preem of Disney superhero pic “Sky High,” attendees were invited to test their superhuman thresholds by scaling an inflatable mountain and checking out the moonbounce.

“We grow up pretending to be superheroes, jumping off the couch with a towel tied around our backs,” said pic’s Kelly Preston, who realized her childhood dream by nabbing the role of Josie Jetstream.

While the after-party might have been kidcentric, producer Andrew Gunn hopes the pic’s tongue-in-cheek spin on the genre will attract auds of all ages. “All the other superhero movies, with their black leather belts, take themselves so seriously,” said Gunn, who likened “Sky High” to a John Hughes film.
