High School Musical: The Musical: The Series has started production and we are interested to see the final product. As we have stated before we love the way that Disney is embracing the short mini-series format over just doing DCOM work. This will be a 10-episode series that will take place 15 years after the original movie.
This re imagination of the High School Musical movie will hopefully capture the original in a new way with this talented new cast.
HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL: THE MUSICAL – Production is underway in Salt Lake City, Utah, on the highly anticipated, innovative and re-invented “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” for Disney+, The Walt Disney Company’s upcoming streaming service.
We think this is great on many levels as it brings something new to Disney+ that already has a fan base with an experienced cast. We also wonder if this will also help bring back high schools performing High School Musical on Stage! as well.
Launching in late 2019, Disney+ will be the ultimate streaming destination for movies and shows from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Star Wars. From The Walt Disney Company’s Direct-to-Consumer and International segment, Disney+ will offer ad-free programming with a variety of original feature-length films, documentaries, live action and animated series and short-form content, along with unprecedented access to Disney’s incredible library of film and television entertainment. The service will also serve as the exclusive streaming home for films released by The Walt Disney Studios in 2019 and beyond, including “Captain Marvel,” “Toy Story 4,” “The Lion King,” “Aladdin,” and “Dumbo.”
The cast for High School Musical: The Musical: The Series already has a lot of experience with this demographic and looks like it will be great.
Joining Joshua Bassett (previously announced), the multitalented cast includes Olivia Rodrigo (“Bizaardvark”), Kate Reinders (“Modern Family,” Broadway’s “Beautiful: The Carole King Musical”), Sofia Wylie (“Andi Mack”), Matt Cornett (“Bella and the Bulldogs”), Dara Reneé (“Freaky Friday”), Julia Lester (“Mom”), Frankie Rodriguez (“Modern Family”), Larry Saperstein (“Fan Girl”), and Mark St. Cyr (“Doomsday”).
