17 Times the High School Musical Cast Reunited Since the Wildcats Graduated
In case you missed it, one-time High School Musical sweethearts Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman are reuniting for a Lifetime holiday movie this winter! The reunion between the duo marks one of only a few times that the HSM cast has worked together since the Disney musical series ended, but they've definitely kept in touch — and there's plenty of photographic proof.
Over the years, the cast has proven that the bonds of being a Wildcat transcend time and separation, with plenty of pics of them supporting each other's careers, showing up at major events, and even just hanging out casually. For anyone who grew up on these movies, it's absolutely adorable. Here are just a few of the times we've spotted the cast reuniting over the years.
