According to a Disney press release, the High School Musical kids are heading to the big screen for their senior year. High School Musical 3: Senior Year will hit theaters Oct. 24 and reunite teeny bopper faves Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman.
Walt Disney Studios Production president Oren Aviv stated, "This latest musical adventure delivers lots of great new entertainment on an even grander scale. Kenny Ortega brings his enormous talents to this project and Peter Barsocchini has come up with a wonderfully inventive script that delivers plenty of delights and surprises."
Surprises! What kinds of surprises? "[The movie] finds high school seniors Troy and Gabriella facing the prospect of being separated from one another as they head off in different directions to college. Joined by the rest of the Wildcats, they stage an elaborate spring musical reflecting their experiences, hopes and fears about their future." If there's anything to be learned from the HSM movies it's that there's nothing in life — or high school! — so difficult it can't be resolved with a reflective musical.
