The High School Musical: The Musical: The Series trailer is finally here. Disney unveiled the new twist on the source material at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California today during the absolutely massive Disney+ streaming service panel. While most people knew what to expect, Disney packed the presentation with more than enough surprises to last for an entire week of news. The aim to compete with Netflix is the main goal for the upcoming streaming platform and they seemed like they were out to prove something today with the avalanche of announcements, which are currently dominating social media.
The talented up-and-coming cast of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series brought down the house with a live performance of the multi-platinum hit song, "We're All In This Together." Immediately following the presentation, cast members Joshua Bassett, Olivia Rodrigo, Matt Cornett, Sofia Wylie, Julia Lester, Larry Saperstein, Dara Reneé, Frankie A. Rodriguez, Kate Reinders, Mark St. Cyr, and Showrunner Tim Federle invited 3,600 fans to watch the first episode in the D23 Expo Arena and revealed the series' teaser trailer.
The 10-episode scripted High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, set at the real-life East High, where the original movie was shot, follows a group of students as they countdown to opening night of their school's first-ever production of High School Musical. It is shot like a docuseries and it will launch with the Disney+ streaming service on November 12th. This is sure to catch a younger audience, along with fans who were in love with the original movies.
Every episode of the upcoming series will feature a new rendition of a song from High School Musical with faithful renditions. As for whether or not High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will live up to the success of the original movies, that is to be determined, but Disney is going for it with the new series and hopes that fans of the original will enjoy the tongue-in-cheek humor and references to the source material. One student even declares, "I've seen the original movie 37 times, and the first 15 minutes of both sequels," in the trailer.
For a monthly price of $6.99 or an annual rate of $69.99 in the U.S. (pricing varies outside United States), Disney+ offers viewers of all ages a compelling price-to-value proposition, with a consumer-friendly experience that's easy-to-navigate with personalized recommendations, high-quality and commercial-free viewing, up to four concurrent streams, and unlimited downloads with no up-charges. High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will be one of the first original projects for the streaming platform, which also includes the live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian.
