The stars of “High School Musical” are still in this together!
Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman recently returned to East High (a high school gymnasium in Los Angeles) to reminisce about their time on “High School Musical”.
It has been 10 years since the popular TV franchise first aired on Disney. Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, said, “Ten years later, the movie continues to delight audiences around the globe, not just for its memorable song and dance numbers, but for its universal themes that continue to resonate with fans everywhere – express yourself, believe in yourself and always follow your dreams.”
HSM’s breakout star Zac Efron is notably missing from the reunion but fret not Troy Bolton fans, the actor will join the telecast in a separate pre-taped message that will air during the anniversary broadcast.
When “High School Musical” debuted back in 20th January 2006, it garnered Disney Channel’s then-highest ratings with 7.7 million viewers in the US alone.
“High School Musical” went on to spawn 2 additional movies, “High School Musical 2” and “High School Musical 3: Senior Year”, an arena concert tour, as well as the “High School Musical: The Ice Tour”.
The original cast was obviously excited over their reunion on social media and even took to Twitter to share some selfies taken from the set.
Are you excited about their reunion?
The “High School Musical” special will air on 20th January on Disney Channel.
