“Wildcats, everywhere, wave your hands up in the air!”
High School Musical stars Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman are reuniting for a brand-new Lifetime movie.
Bleu and Coleman and reuniting for the first time since starring in the 2006 Disney Channel Original Movie, High School Musical, to star in a new Lifetime film, A Christmas Dance Reunion. In High School Musical, Bleu took on the role of Chad, a star basketball player and Troy’s (Zac Efron) best friend whereas Coleman played student Taylor, best friend to Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens).
Now, for the upcoming film, Vulture reports that A Christmas Dance Reunion will follow Coleman as a “successful attorney named Lucy Mortimer, who, along with her mother, returns to their old holiday getaway, the Winterleigh Resort, where she’s reunited with her childhood Christmas Dance partner, Barrett Brewster (Bleu), nephew of the owner. Together, they reinvigorate the holidays at the resort, but can they give that same passion to each other?”
Coleman originally shared the news on Twitter, posting a photo of herself and Bleu from High School Musical side by side with a photo from the upcoming Lifetime film with the caption “How it started -How it’s going”.
Bleu retweeted Coleman’s Tweet with a winky face as his caption, which you can see below.
