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:
“There aren’t a lot of writers who get to launch a new streaming platform like Disney+,” Federle says. “It’s a privilege to create a love letter to fans of the original High School Musical movies while also making an irreverent, feel-good musical for a new generation.”
The Series will be shown off for the first time at this weekends D23 Expo in a special panel on Friday evening.
The first episode of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series will be available on Disney+ on November 12th, when the new streaming platform launches.
