The High School Musical franchise is getting a sequel, and for the first time it sadly won’t involve Troy and Gabriella </3
HOWEVER, they're casting a whole new set of characters.
The story will focus around a pair of ~lovers~ that will give you all the Troyella nostalgia you’ll ever need.
First off, there’s Erin who's the only girl on the boys' soccer team. She falls for a bad boy named Derek, and struggles with whether or not they should be together. Even though Derek is the quintessential "tough guy," he's secretly a softie on the inside (especially when it comes to his family). He plays soccer and teaches dance classes at his family's dance studio.
There’s also a guy named Campbell who isn't happy about their fledging romance #lovetriangleALERT
But it gets even better… he's basically the reincarnation of Troy Bolton — AND actually Sharpay and Ryan's cousin — who is both the soccer captain and the theatre babe.
Other characters include Erin's best friend, Nathalie, an extremely school-spirited cheerleader, and Tamara, a cheerleader who used to dominate the social ladder at East High and wants to reclaim her spot at the top, as you do.
Prays to the HSM Gods for the original cast to make an appearance
But still, we’re SO DAMN EXCITED.
