During the panel at D23, it was confirmed that the sequel ‘High School Musical 4‘ is finally going to happen, but not in the way you think…
Entitled ‘High School Musical 4: The Reunion‘, the new feature will exist as a narrative of the 4th season of the series ‘High School Musical: A Série: O Musical‘. In the plot, the characters of the series will be cast as extras in the film – which will be filmed again at East High School.
It has yet to be confirmed which actors from the original franchise will return to participate in this movie-within-a-series. It is likely that Corbin Blue return, as the actor already played a caricatured version of himself in season 3.
Recently, the stars Zac Efron e Vanessa Hudgens posted nostalgic photos in front of East High, but the showrunner Tim Federle assured that it was just a coincidence and has no relation to the next cycle of the series.
“I can only say that [as fotos] it was just a coincidence, but we would love to have Zac and Vanessa return.” declared Federle.
Season three will take place at a summer camp, where East High students will find “romance, curfew nights and outdoor adventures. With a challenging production of ‘Frozen’ on the horizon and a drama-packed behind-the-scenes documentary in development, the Wildcats will show everyone who knows how to play better in the snow without giving anyone the cold shoulder.”
The cast will feature the return of Joshua Bassett, Sofia Wylie, Matt Cornett, Julia Lester, Dara Renee e frankie rodriguez. Several familiar faces – such as Kate Reinders, Olivia Rose Keegan, Olivia Rodrigo, Larry Saperstein e Joe Serafini — will return for cameos only.
The new cycle will still introduce Adrian Lyles e Saylor Bell not cast.
