10 years after the first High School Musical made stars of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, High School Musical 4 is happening...
The Disney Channel is set to resurrect the High School Musical series of films, as it looks to cast a fourth movie.
The first two High School Musical films – that helped make stars out of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens – debuted on TV in the Us, with the third getting a cinema release. The last of the movies, High School Musical 3: Senior Year, was released back in 2008, but now the search is on for the cast of High School Musical 4.
This is a Disney Channel project, so it’s fair to assume this one will debut on TV as well. It’ll tell the story of the new generation of East High Wildcats, as they do battle with their rivals, the West High Knights.
The casting directors are Jason La Padura, C.S.A., Natalie Hart, C.S.A., and Kendra Patterson, C.S.A., of Lapadura/Hart/Patterson. Information on open casting calls to be scheduled this spring will soon be posted at DisneyChannel.com/OpenCall. Here's what Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, had to say in a statement.
A fourth installment in Disney Channel’s High School Musical series — not counting the Ashley Tisdale-led spinoff Sharpay’s Fabulous Adventure, of course — is in the works, with the launch of a nationwide casting search. (Interested applicants, head this-a-way.)

All we know about the film, so far, is that it will take place at East High, where the franchise — starring Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Monique Coleman and Corbin Bleu — got its start.

Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Jeffrey Hornaday (Teen Beach Movie) will direct and choreograph the film from a script by Dan Berendsen (Baby Daddy) and Peter Barsocchini, who penned all three of the original movies.
“High School Musical is part of Disney Channel’s DNA,” states Gary Marsh, president of Disney Channels Worldwide. “It embodies all that we stand for. As a way of continuing to embrace that heritage, we’re excited to announce ‘the start of something new’ – as we launch a search for a new class of East High Wildcats to star in a fourth installment of the High School Musical franchise.”
Coming 10 years after “High School Musical” premiered, “High School Musical 4,” which is in development, will introduce a new cast of characters and actors to a new generation. The potential movie is described as continuing the story of “High School Musical,” while introducing new East High Wildcats and their cross-town school rivals, the West High Knights.
“High School Musical 4” was first announced back in 2009. Now with casting beginning, Jeffrey Hornaday, who directed the kids’ cabler’s “Teen Beach Movie” and “Teen Beach 2,” is still attached to direct and choreograph, should the telepic be greenlit — which is likely, given the huge success of the pop culture juggernaut.
The original “High School Musical” in 2006 starred Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman,
To its credit, Disney Channel’s commitment to live-action musicals introduces its audience to a genre that doesn’t gain much exposure elsewhere on TV, so the second-guessing should be kept to a minimum. That said, given that some parents will doubtless be lulled into sitting through these exercises with their kids,
