Diehard fans of the musical teen drama film franchise High School Musical are all ears for any developments concerning a reunion movie since word has been spreading for a larger part of the year.
Well, let’s put your minds at ease. Yes, a High School Musical Reunion is set to be on the cards, but it won’t be as direct as you’d expect.
How it Began
The reunion frenzy started when Vanessa Hudgens, who played Gabriella Montez on High School Musical, shared a TikTok video from outside the real Salt Lake East High, where she recorded the sound to the ‘Breaking Free’ soundtrack at the end of the first film.
A few weeks later, fans went bananas when Zac Efron, who starred as Troy Bolton, Gabriella's boyfriend, posted a photo with him standing at the very same spot that his co-star did.
Neither of the stars explained why they went back to Salt Lake East High, leaving the audience scratching their heads as to whether they were hinting at a reunion movie.
