High School Musical CastThe cast of Disney’s “High School Musical” franchise has agreed to return for a third installment. The third film will be called “High School Musical 3: Senior Year” and is scheduled to be released to theaters on October 24, 2008.

Zac Efron, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman will all be returning for the third film. This project has been in the works as a rumored theatrical project since the second TV movie attracted record breaking audiences for the Disney Channel.

Kenny Ortega and Peter Barsocchini will be returning as director and writer, respectively. Both directed and wrote the first two films in the series.

This third film will revolve around seniors Troy (Efron) and Gabriella (Hudgens) facing the prospect of being separated from one another as they head off in different directions to college (I’m welling up with tears already). Joined by the rest of the (dancing) Wildcats, they stage an elaborate spring musical reflecting their experiences, hopes and fears about their future (haven’t we all done that at one point in our lives?).

In case you’re wondering, it was Vanessa Hudgens that sent the dirty pictures to her boyfriend, Zac Efron (“High School Musicalâ€Â? Star Appears Nude In Web Photo) and yes, she will be in this film as I mentioned above.
