The Sky Is Everywhere was first picked up as a film adaptation by Apple TV+ and A24 way back in 2019. Over the course of 2020, we saw the cast fill out. But it wouldn’t be until January of 2022 that we finally got a first look at the upcoming film adaptation of the popular young adult novel.
But now things are moving pretty quickly as Apple TV+ moves towards the premiere date, which is set for this upcoming Valentine’s Day weekend. The film, which is based on the book of the same name written by Jandy Nelson, is set to start streaming on Apple’s streaming service Friday, February 11, 2022.
As first spotted by 9to5Mac, the trailer for The Sky Is Everywhere is now available to watch on YouTube. However, it’s an unlisted upload, and it actually shows that Apple TV+ uploaded it on January 13. Plus, the official description attached to the trailer indicates Apple doesn’t actually plan to make it public until the early stages of next month.
Still, if you’ve been eagerly anticipating the launch of this one, at least you can watch the first official trailer (which measures in at over two minutes) now, in the video above.
As for the cast, we know that Grace Kaufman is going to star as Lennie Walker. Cherry Jones and Jason Segel also joined the cast back in 2020. Pico Alexander (A Most Violent Year) is starring as Toby Shaw, and Jacques Colimon (The Society) takes up the role of Joe Fontaine.
The film is being directed by Josephine Decker (Madeline’s Madeline), with Apple Original Films and A24 set to produce.
Here’s the official story description:
Tucked among the magical redwood trees of Northern California and surrounded by her grandmother’s gargantuan roses, 17-year-old Lennie Walker, a radiant musical prodigy, struggles with overwhelming grief following the sudden loss of her older sister, Bailey. When Joe Fontaine, the charismatic new guy at school, enters Lennie’s life, she’s drawn to him. But Lennie’s complicated relationship with her sister’s devastated boyfriend, Toby, starts to affect Lennie and Joe’s budding love. Through her vivid imagination and honest, conflicted heart, Lennie navigates first love and first loss to create a song of her own.
