Some are pleasantly surprised while others want nothing to do with it!
Disney’s new streaming service is set to land in the US in November and with it comes a whole lot of new content.
The online platform will have Disney, Pixar, Marvel, Star Wars and Nat Geo content, which means it’ll give Netflix a run for its money.
Disney held an expo packed with exciting announcements this month, including an original Star Wars series, SHE-HULK, and a Lizzie McGuire series starring Hilary Duff.
However, the news of a High School Musical series had loyal fans feeling both nervous and excited. What if it ruins the original films? What is it’s awful? With none of the original cast, can it really be any good?
The trailer has since been released and it explains a lot more about the show. It’s not a reboot or a sequel, but the start of something new altogether. High School Musical: The Musical is actually about a group of students auditioning for the school musical version of High School Musical, having fallen in love with the movies just like we did!
It’s actually pretty self-aware but has themes similar to the OG films, like a love story between the main characters and some stage school divas as well as it being set in East High the school where the film was shot.
We’ll let the trailer speak for itself though:

Now that the first trailer has been released, many cynics have admitted that it looks pretty good.

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but High School Musical: The Musical: The Series looks like it might…be good?

But of course, there are still some die-hard fans who will always be loyal to the OG films.
