CS Video: High School Musical: The Musical cast talk Disney+ series
ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to sit down with the High School Musical: The Musical cast, including Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie, Joshua Bassett, and Olivia Rodrigo, to talk about the new Disney+ series based on the feature films. You can check out the interviews now in the player below and catch new episodes of the first season debuting every Friday on the streamer!
The 10-episode series is described as a docu-style show which follows a group of students at East High who stage a performance of High School Musical for their winter theater production, only to realize that as much drama is also happening offstage. A brand new class of kids tackle the roles of Gabriella, Troy, Ryan, Sharpay, and all the rest.
Each episode will include new songs as well as new renditions of iconic songs from the films.
High School Musical: The Musical will be executive produced by Tim Federle (Ferdinand) and Oliver Goldstick (Pretty Little Liars) along with the original film’s EPs Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush.
The first High School Musical film aired in 2006 at the Disney channel which launched the careers of Zac Efron (The Greatest Showman, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile), Vanessa Hudgens (Dog Days) and Ashley Tisdale (Charming) giving them worldwide recognition. The last film titled High School Musical 3: Senior Year was released ten years ago.
The first two episodes are available to stream now on Disney+.
