Dove Cameron and Luke Benward make a deal in Disney Channel's 'Cloud 9' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

With the Winter Olympics less than a month away, Disney Channel is getting into the spirit with its new original movie Cloud 9 about competitive snowboarding. Dove Cameron (Liv and Maddie) and Luke Benward (Ravenswood) star in the film, which premieres on Friday, January 17th at 8 p.m. ET.

Cloud 9 follows two unlikely friends, Kayla Morgan (Cameron), a prima donna snowboarder who was just dropped from her competition team, and Will Cloud (Benward), a former snowboarding champion who is struggling after a career-ending wipeout. The two meet when Kayla is forced to work at the local dog-grooming shop owned by Will’s mother. Determined to become a better boarder, Kayla finds an unexpected mentor in Will, who she realizes can help take her to the next level. So in exchange for help fixing up the dog-grooming shop, Will reluctantly accepts Kayla’s pleas to train her and introduces her to a regimen that tests her true commitment to the sport.  As the two grow closer, Kayla’s efforts convince Will that he, too, has the power to regain his championship status and that nothing is impossible.

EW talked to the cast about the film last month, and now you have the chance to check out an exclusive clip below:

New Disney Channel movie 'Cloud 9' hits the slopes in the world of competitive snowboarding

Disney Channel is welcoming in the winter months with the new original movie Cloud 9,  starring Dove Cameron (Liv and Maddie) and Luke Benward (Ravenswood) and executive produced by Disney alum Ashley Tisdale. EW talked with the stars and Tisdale about the  film and how they hope it will reach Disney Channel fans of all ages.

Cloud 9 follows two unlikely friends, Kayla Morgan (Cameron), a prima donna snowboarder who was just dropped from her competition team, and Will Cloud (Benward), a former snowboarding champion who is struggling after a career-ending wipeout. The two meet when Kayla is forced to work at the local dog grooming shop owned by Will’s mother. Determined to become a better boarder, Kayla finds an unexpected mentor in Will, who she realizes can help take her to the next level.  So in exchange for help fixing up the dog grooming shop, Will reluctantly accepts Kayla’s pleas to train her and introduces her to a regimen that tests her true commitment to the sport.  As the two grow closer, Kayla’s efforts convince Will that he, too, has the power to regain his championship status.

“Something I really love about this film is that it’s not Kayla’s story and it’s not Will’s story. It’s about their journey together,” Cameron told EW. “She learns that she was missing a lot more in her life than she thought when she meets Will Cloud. It’s a story about a girl who wants a man to stand beside her as she saves herself.” Cameron is a relatively new member of the Disney family, though she has already cemented her place as the new Queen Mouseketeer. She does double duty playing both title characters (a la Lindsay Lohan) in the Disney Channel sitcom Liv and Maddie and will play Maleficent’s daughter in the upcoming Descendants“I’m so incredibly over-the-moon excited to finally be able to talk about it!”

'Liv & Maddie': New exclusive clip from Disney Channel's twin-com

What freaky twin thing?

There’s a new generation of lookalike blonds invading Disney Channel this fall: Liv and Maddie, a pair of polar opposites who just happen to be twin sisters. Mary-Kate Maddie is a wry, down-to-earth basketball star; Ashley Liv is a glamorous ex-TV star getting used to life as a regular kid. In this case, both girls are played by one actress: 17-year-old Dove Cameron, previously seen in bit parts on Shameless and The Mentalist. (She’s also got quite a voice.)

Get a sneak peek at the series premiere in the clip below, which shows the gals sharing some twin time. Maybe next they’ll discover that they both love Oreos dipped in peanut butter!
