First Look At Disney+ Original High School Musical: The Musical: The Series

Just ahead of this weeks D23 Expo, Disney has released some still images via People, of the upcoming Disney+ Original, High School Musical: The Musical: The Series.

The 10-episode series picks up nearly 15 years after the original movie aired at the real-life location where it all began: East High. It follows a group of students as they countdown to the opening night of their school’s first-ever production of “High School Musical.” Showmances blossom; friendships are tested while new ones are made; rivalries flare and lives are changed forever as these young people discover the transformative power that only a high school drama club can provide.

“Doing theater is all about finding your tribe,” creator and showrunner Tim Federle tells PEOPLE. “I can’t wait till the world meets the crazy-talented new tribe of High School Musical: the Musical: the Series.”

Here is a sneak peek of this new show:
