After months about speculation about who would return and who would not for the final High School Musical
movie, Disney announced this week that the entire original cast has signed on for High School Musical 3
. Returning cast members include: Zac Efron
, Vanessa Hudgens
, Ashley Tisdale
, Lucas Grabeel
, Monique Coleman
, Corbin Bleu
, and Olesya Rulin
. The plot revolves around the students of East High in their senior year and planning out their futures. The original plot was rumored to be a Halloween movie entitled Haunted High School Musical
. Yeah, Plan B was a much better idea!
Senior year puts a strain on the Troy and Gabriella's relationship as the two have different ideas about where they want to go to college. Though no solid plot details have been released yet, we can speculate about where the Wildcats will want to continue their education. There is no doubt that Troy's father will want him to play college ball which could put him at University of North Carolina, UCLA, or Texas A&M. Smart girls Gabriella and Taylor will most likely be looking at top schools, perhaps Ivy League. That would put Gabriella far away from her boyfriend if she applied to schools such as Yale, Princeton, or Columbia. As for Troy and Sharpay, they might look to head to a big city such as New York or Los Angeles to become stars.
Currently, previous cast members in smaller roles such as Chris Warren Jr. (Zeke), Ryne Sanborn (Jason), and Kaycee Stroh (Martha) have not been announced as being part of High School Musical 3
. IMDB lists Bart Johnson (Coach Bolton), Leslie Wing (Lucille Bolton), and Alyson Reed (Ms. Darbus) as definite HSM3
cast members. However, more announcements regarding the third movie are expected over the next few months as production kicks into full gear.
