High School Musical fans assemble. Zac Efron has revealed that he would love to star in a reboot of the HSM franchise.
Ever since High School Musical 3: Senior Year came out in cinemas in 2008, fans have been begging Disney for more of the HSM universe. Since then, we've had Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure in 2011 and Disney+'s hilarious High School Musical: The Musical: The Series but Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens and the rest of the original cast are yet to reunite on screen.
It looks as though our prayers may finally be answered though. Zac has just teased that he wants to do another HSM film.
In an interview with E! News, Zac was asked: "Would Zac Efron be interested in a High School Musical reboot?" Without hesitating, the actor then smiled and said: "Of course. Seriously, having the opportunity, in any form, to go back and work with that team would be so amazing. My heart's still there." No. I'm not crying, you are.
In recent years, Zac has steered clear of any High School Musical reunions and events, so to hear him earnestly say that his heart's still with his High School Musical family is quite the revelation. Zac then ended the interview by doubling down on his comments and saying: "That would be incredible. I hope it happens."
Someone get Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale and the rest of the original cast on the phone now!
Of course, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series is already a reboot of sorts. The beloved series is a mockumentary that sees the school where High School Musical was filmed put on a production of High School Musical for the first time. It stars Olivia Rodrigo and Joshua Bassett alongside an incredible ensemble cast.
A handful of HSM actors have already appeared in the show, including Lucas Gabreel (Ryan) and Corbin Bleu (Chad) both playing themselves.
Rumours that Zac and Vanessa could appear in HSMTMTS season 4 have also been circulating after they both shared separate posts of themselves at East High's filming location. The plot of season 4 will revolve around a new High School Musical movie being made.
