“High School Musical” fans, we’re all in this together! We know we’re not the only ones who are totally excited to see “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” once it premieres on Disney+. And these new sneak-peek images of the new show is leading us to want to subscribe to Disney’s new streaming service as soon as possible.
From what we can tell, fans of this original series will enjoy this show. But keep in mind that it’s not your traditional Disney remake. “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” doesn’t follow the tumultuous relationships of Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Chad, and the rest of the gang. Instead, it follows a new group of teens as they navigate their high school lives (and recreate the original “High School Musical” story as their own school musical). It’s filmed documentary-style: there’s drama, there’s romance, there’s music. If it sounds super meta, it’s because it is, but that may be why it’s going to be so successful.
“Doing theater is all about finding your tribe,” creator and showrunner Tim Federle said to People Magazine. “I can’t wait till the world meets the crazy-talented new tribe of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.”
We’re going to have to wait until this November to see the full episodes of “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” once Disney+ officially launches. But we’ll be heading to D23 Expo this weekend, and we’ll share all of the details we learn about the show there.
Here are the sneak-peek images that Disney and People just dropped, which show us even more hints at the all-new characters and their personalities we’re sure we’ll love:
Ricky, the show’s main protagonist trying to win back his ex-girlfriend Nini, has got a guitar in hand and seems like he may even be more musically talented than the original movie’s leading male:
