No need to freak out, Disney fans, we’re all in this together!
In honor of the 10-year anniversary of the premiere of “High School Musical,” Disney has announced that the original cast will reunite for a screening of the first movie.
The career-launching movie musical was an instant success for the Disney Channel, as well as many of the actors who starred in it. While teen heartthrob Troy Bolton (Zac Efron) will not be attending, you can look forward to all your other favorites showing up for their 10-year high school reunion. Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman will host a screening of “High School Musical” on Wednesday (Jan. 20).
If you’re bummed you won’t see Zac Efron reunite will all his old friends, never fear! The actor will make a brief cameo with a pre-recorded message for fans.
“Seeing the cast of ‘High School Musical’ back together again reaffirms what made it special 10 years ago,” says Gary Marsh, Disney Channels Worldwide president and chief creative officer. “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.”
The 10-year reunion special of “High School Musical” will air on Disney Channel on Jan. 20 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
