It has been 16 years since the first “High School Musical” movie was released by Disney, in June 2006. The third and final film, “High School Musical 3: Senior Year,” was released in October 2008. All three movies star Efron with Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and Lucas Grabeel.
“High School Musical” follows Gabriella Montez (Hudgens) and Troy Bolton (Efron), who are in two different high school cliques but bond as they explore their passion for music. Sharpay Evans (Tisdale), the main antagonist, and her twin Ryan Evans (Grabeel) are the presidents of Montez and Bolton’s high school drama club.
In 2019, Disney adapted the films into a television series featuring a new set of characters played by Olivia Rodrigo, Joshua Bassett, Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie, Larry Saperstein, Julia Lester, Dara Reneé, Frankie Rodriguez, Mark St. Cyr, Kate Reinders and Joe Serafini. Dana Cruz /ra
