After the graduation of East High’s Wildcats in 2008, Disney has recently confirmed the return High School Musical, of the most-watched TV movie of all time with over 17 million viewers.
The new addition to the series, titled High School Musical 4: East Meets West, will introduce a new rivalry between East High’s Wildcats and West High’s Knights.
The question of any returning cast members has been lingering along with the throwback songs to celebrate.
The new storyline features a whole new crew at East High, including Sharpay and Ryan Evans’ ‘fabulous’ cousin. Casting auditions for these new additions are currently happening across America, making the return of the cast we’re already familiar with looking slim. With all of these new members joining HSM, it’s tough to tell if the original cast will be reunited once again to declare, “Once a Wildcat, Always a Wildcat,” or if they have even be asked, as no actors have made any statements on the movie.
As to be expected, many fans hope to see how life turned out for Troy and Gabriella, the original “relationship goals” of this generation after an eight year hiatus.
With the excitement of millions of fans and many decisions to still be made about the movie, it will be exciting to see how High School Musical 4 pans out, and hopefully as soon as possible, before the viewers are in their twenties. But hey, once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat, right?
