“High School Musical” has been one of the biggest franchises to come out of Disney Channel. The original film premiered on the network in 2006, while its sequel, “High School Musical 2,” arrived just a year later. The movies were such big hits that the network released the third film, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year,” in theaters. The trilogy has since inspired merchandise like novels and videogames, as well as a spin-off movie called “Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure” and the hit Disney+ series, “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.”
While the cast has reunited on several occasions over the years, we’re crossing our fingers there’s still a chance a “High School Musical 4” could happen with Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Corbin Bleu, Lucas Grabeel, and Monique Coleman returning to reprise their roles.
On June 26, Hudgens, who played Gabrielle Montez in the films, posted an Instagram video of herself visiting East High, which is the school in Salt Lake City where the trilogy was filmed. Just weeks later, Efron, who played Troy Bolton, also posted a photo on Instagram of him in front of the famous school. This got us wondering whether another film could be in the works.
So, could this really be the start of something new? Here’s everything we know about the possibility of a “High School Musical 4” movie happening, including what the original cast has said about returning to the franchise.
